We visited Rough and Tumble during the Thresherman's Reunion weekend, what a great event.
The grounds are much bigger than anticipated and are full of interesting things at every turn. If it has gears, an engine and does some sort of work you will find it here. The best part is that the vast majority of the items on display still operate and many are in operation throughout the day. Cars, steam shovels, graders, stationary engines, generators, water pumps anything you could think of, it is probably here somewhere. There are two steam trains to ride and several places to grab a bite to eat. Admission and food prices are reasonable. Gearheads will love this place, there are also enough other displays to keep non gearheads entertained as well. This is a worthwhile addition to any trip to Lancaster County PA, plan on spending at least 2-3 hours (we spent all day). This is on my short list for a re-visit!
