Quick mining fun
Jul 2021
My daughter loves gemstones. This was fun and quick! I recommend upgrading your bag when you get there. $12 bags are just fossils. $26 bags are fossils and gemstones. Totally worth it! I found a huge amethyst quartz in mine, about the size of my fist.

big family group loved the ropes course
Jul 2018 • Family
Our family reunion of 24 people took a break from sightseeing in the park to try the ropes course. We opted for the Adventure passes, figuring we would likely stay a couple of hours as we had three two-year olds and a baby with our group. It turns out that adults, teenagers, kids and even the little ones had such a great time that we stayed almost five hours, trading out the childcare.

The company let us bring in our Coleman stove to heat pulled pork for sandwiches at lunch time--there is a nice shaded ramada. The little ones loved the gemstone mining (gold panning for treasures from a bag you buy to "seed" the sluice.)

There are also logs for the little ones to "walk a tight rope" while the older people are busy, and a lariat to try roping a metal calf.

Our five, six and seven year olds upgraded from the junior course to the big one after an hour because they wanted to do all the zip lines. Be aware that if your young ones opt to do that they will need an adult with them (to clip them in and out of the safety cables.

We have one person who has an issue with heights. He had to accompany one of his kids, and felt a real sense of accomplishment after getting up to the highest level and doing all the zip lines.

It is very much a "do it all yourself" enterprise. There are staff on the ropes, but you, the climber do all of your own transfers and clipping in and out. There is a sense of accomplishment for first timers.

The best compliment was from a thirty year old in our group who said, "Hey this place is legit!"
