  • Stopped in close to closing time. Staff was incredibly nice and polite unlike two other mines we stopped at. Stayed open as long as we wanted to stay. Grabbed two bags to go at half the price of other mines. Will definitely go back next time I'm in the area. BTW the bags we got to go had plenty in them, again unlike some other mines in the area
  • Took my 7 yr old granddaughter to meet with her little friend that she met on the airplane on our way from PA, they had a blast as did Nana & Mama! It really was fun for all of us. Also great place to get gifts for those at home! Staff is very helpful & knowledgeable.
  • Took our 2 little kids (5 &1) plus our 14 year old daughter. Everyone of them had a blast. My 14, who at this age "hates" everything, loved the pirate. It might be touristy to some but our family enjoyed it and will return on our next trip to North Carolina. Make sure to see the goats. They were my 5 year olds most favorite part. 👍🏻
  • What a wonderful experience. We found it driving by on our way to get strawberries. So many neat things in this place. We ended up with all sorts of neat things from there. The staff was very kind and helpful. I wish we would have had our two young boys with us as they would have had a blast there!
  • Second time here from Florida and had to bring my grown kids back to experience the entire store. Gem mining was awesome but the staff Heather and the gang were incredible. Very knowledgeable and so helpful. GREAT DAY! We will be back every year from now on.
