  • Beautiful crystals. Huge range of gifts. The museum is amazing! Great fun for the kids with rides and animals. Cafe is good too.
  • Food in the cafe was incredibly salty and overcooked. Salad was so old it has wilted. Sent it back and was told the chef had run out. Overpriced and poor quality As far as the rest of the attractions go, it has a reasonable kids petting farm but the rides (kids tractors, and mini rollercoster) only operate in the weekend or during school holidays. If you were to make comparisons, this is a budget West Auckland version of Butterfly Creek with a couple of small kids rides thrown in. If you are into rocks an minerals, it might be worth visiting, but if you want to take the kids out for an interesting day, Butterfly Creek easily beats this at only a slightly higher price.
  • For anyone that absolutely loves crystals 5 star.... however the petting zoo has limited animals and not many rides for kids but definitely a great an affordable day out for all ages, the cafe service was rude we had purchased a cold drink. An had to wait back in line to receive drink, as the young girl kept serving others before giving item 1 star for cafe
  • Wonderful people. Some prices are too high but some are great prices
  • Fantastic place to take kids below school age, a small roller-coaster, tractor rides, and a tiny bungy jump. Medium priced.
