We had fun with our two year old, she enjoyed it. We would go again. However we waited a while to get started and there weren't many people there.

We took my rock hound 6-year-old daughter to Dells Mining on our Dells vacation for a fun, quick side attraction. She loved the hands-on "mining", and the staff were very helpful pointing out the different kinds of rocks she had found. They also let her...More

The buckets are pricey and it is really "fake", but at the same time it was kind of fun seeing what you might discover in your bucket! We did a $30 bucket and still had a pretty decent haul of "gems". It was nice having...More
