If you have kids that love to dig and find rocks then this is the place. Yes its a little expensive but thats to be expected. Its more about the experience than the cost. We got the yellow bucket and found some really cool stones.

Brought granddaughter who was 6, not sure who had more fun her or grandparents. Its pricey, but you can pick your bucket price range. Grandaughter loved it! She loves rocks, so this was a winner! Lots of fun!

This was fun, do t get me wrong. My 8 year old loved it, and I think my 14 year old had a good time too. We got the $60 bucket (buckets range from like $20-$130) and we had a coupon for a free bucket,...More

We have been to other Mining establishments and they were much more fun than this one. The buckets are way too, uh, "rehearsed". We like to have an adventure when "mining". Is it gravel? Is it a Ruby? Here, the bucket was mostly sand. There's...More

We took our small children 4 and 9 because my daughter loves rocks. We found this to be really fun. We panned for our gems and at the end the lady was able to show and tell us all about the gems we found. We...More

Yes, it's touristy and a bit understaffed, but it was great fun. Staff explained the process thoroughly and clearly and we loved the "mining" experience and our finds. We did a family bucket between three people, and there was plenty to go around.
