  • Well worth it. For $12 you get a small bucket of gems or only sapphire, ruby and emeralds. The kids loved it!! There are bigger buckets available but this was just perfect for what we wanted to do.
  • The staff were friendly and the gem mining here was great. Found a whole bunch of lovely gems, some of which were huge! I would absolutely come here again!
  • Excellent Service! Take your time if you want to find the real gemstones in the pans. Went in lost, came out super satisfied. Great place to bring the whole family!
  • Great place to take the kids. Took 4, ages 6-13, to mine against their complaints over a lack of internet and access to social media. By the time we left they were picking over their finds, identifying, classifying and trading their gems and fossils until bed time and even through the next morning without any further gripe about wifi. Go ahead and test your fortune. Gem cutting on site. Fun for the whole family.
  • My kids had so much fun panning for gold and gems here!
