  • This place was very fun, but expensive. There are different size buckets starting at $15. The sifting stations make it seem very realistic and fun. Once you finish your bucket, the staff will sort thr...  read more »
  • Stepped in to do some gem mining, the two people behind the counter weren't very welcoming (or busy). Asked if they happened to have a coupon in the discount book and they quickly said no they don't d...  read more »
  • This place is awesome! It was perfect for my 8, 10 and 14 year old!! They had a blast sifting through to find their gems!!! We got the original bucket for $25.00 and they all found atleast 1 large sto...  read more »
  • Nice place friendly staff. My son loved it.
  • Well I can't say I dislike it I brought a girl up there for the weekend so my girlfriend at home wouldn't know I was with someone else I like seeking around and cheating I've done it for years I guess you can say I'm a Hoe
  • We love our crystals and our whole trip was based around letting our little girl find her own She is crying right now because although the doors say open at one and we've found things to do in the meantime it's now 130 and still no sign of anyone opening the store what a let down
  • It was ok but not worth what we spent. We ordered a ring for our daughter and never received it. They won't answer their phone. The mailbox is full so I can't leave a message. I sent an email and have not got a response. We paid $80 for the ring plus the $25 for the bucket of dirt to sift through to find the stone which only took 4 minutes to complete. I feel like I was completely scammed. I would not recommend anyone to this place.
  • Our family has tried a few gem mining places in the Gatlinburg/ Pigeon Forge area while on vacation. This is the only one we have returned to. The staff is friendly, knowledgeable, and you get good usable gemstones. We would recommend this place to anyone looking for a good time with the family. We'll be back next year!
