  • Loved how crazy the kids went here. Good footpath to check out the dino-models, gives the place a lot more space than just the little park area inside the entrance. They really loved the gem sluice too, that was a huge hit.
  • It was awesome for our 7yr old and 2-1/2yr old grandchildren!! We were there for 1-1/2hrs and saw everything!! Perfect amount of time. Very clean and exciting!
  • This place Is really nice and shady throughout the walk. I like that it's dog friendly and not badly priced. Wish they had some kind of little restaurant or food place.
  • We had a lot of fun. Kid 3-10 years old all really enjoyed it. It was kinda buggy, you may want to use some bug spray.
  • Our Girls, 6 and 3, love coming here! We walk the trails, pan for gems, and play on the playground. Great day trip!
