  • We loved this place! We were looking forward to trying something new for the kiddos and this was it. Our five kids (ages were 18, 16, 14, 9 and 5) loved it too! As we walked in we were a little uncertain but the staff was wonderful and very down to earth. Definitely will be coming back!
  • Kids had fun panning for gold. We heard the tour was a little long and not as interesting for the kids, so we avoided that. "Sis" helped us with the panning, and was very friendly and made the experience fun. Our kids were only allowed to bring one souvenir home from our trip, and they all chose the gift shop at Wade's to find something, since they felt it had the most unique and fun souvenirs.
  • A very neat place to visit.
