This place is awesome! It was perfect for my 8, 10 and 14 year old!! They had a blast sifting through to find their gems!!! We got the original bucket for $25.00 and they all found atleast 1 large stone and 2-3 medium stones!! Then afterwards they told the kids what type of stones they found! Would definitely do again!!
My son loved mining for his own gems. It wasn't that expensive, and he found some cool stones. The guy who explained the process, and the woman who showed us what we found were very friendly and knowledgeable.
We did this with our kids- 6, 10 and 17- it was quite enjoyable and they found lots of stuff. The man there showed us what each gem was, was friendly and knowledgeable and I ordered a cut pendant which I can’t wait to recieve. It's a fun little experience and we would definitely do this again, only I would... 更多
First, I researched the place before I went, so I was pretty sure I wasn't going to a stream outside with a rock pick and gold pan. It's a "touristy" little place in the heart of the hustle bustle of main street Gatlinburg. You buy a bucket of dirt guaranteed to have stones and gems. It's like an Easter Egg... 更多

My 2 kids and I shared a big bucket (I can't remember which one...the one in the middle). We found a whole pan full of gems and had a blast. The guy was very helpful in identifying our gems and didn't pressure us at all to get them made into jewelry. I would definitely go back.
Took my kids here recently and had a blast. For just $25 both my children were able to pan for gem stones and have fun. I just love watching them having fun finding these precious gem stones. From large chunks of amethyst to rubies it was a blast.
MY grand-daughter thought she found her diamond.She was afraid that if she made a mess that she would be in trouble. I told her playing in the dirt and looking for gems was the best part and that Gamma had done it before. It was a blast.
Enjoyed our experience. Chose the $25 bucket for our two girls to split and after finding many gems we sat with Adam as he educated us on our findings. We did not purchase any cuts or settings and we were not pressured to do so. Would do again. Adam was friendly and helpful.
