  • My visit was nostalgic, last time I was here was the mid 90's. Brought my boy here for the laser show and he loved it. Then before everything closed up we toured the inside to learn more about the history. Good times.
  • I've been here. In the 90's when I was a kid. It was awesome but scary to walk the damm the laser light show was also cool played with some pink Floyd. Enjoyed. It with the family. Sometimes those days only last so long,never forget
  • Impressive to see...but don't even bother wasting your time taking a tour of this place. First you have to sit in a tin trailer and wait to go through security. But first you have to sit through a laughable 5 minute security video. Then you go through metal detectors and get on a bus. Armed security guards are with you the entire time. Then they take you down to see the generators...then they take you to the top of the dam...and the tour is over. The tour can only last 1 hour from start to finish...and they are strict about this. They start the video right at 10am. Security for 35 people took 15 minutes. It take 7 minutes to drive to the dam. Finally when you're at the dam you get all of about 15-20 minutes...then they say...well we're out of time, tour you can get back to the shed at 11am. VERY disappointing and worst tour I've ever been on. Our tour guide was some high school kid who just had a memorized script and couldn't answer any questions. You are much better off traveling the 30 minutes west to the Chief Joseph dam...2nd largest dam...and taking that tour. They only happen 3 times a day, but it is well worth it. We were the only people on the tour, and our tour guide spend 2 hours with us, showing us the generator room, taking us inside a generator that was tore out and being repaired. You will not get a bad tour at an Army Corp dam...only bad damn tours are with the bureau of reclamation (which is what Grand Coulee is).
  • its fun to watch the laster ligt show!?
  • A must visit! Great tours and don't miss the laser light show at night.
