  • Very quaint fun for little kids! My 5 & 7yo had a blast driving the electric cars, also scored big time mining for gems. My 12yo loved the paintball target practice. Everyone left happy with souvenirs and it was very reasonably priced! We brought a picnic lunch and ate at their tables. Dog friendly and Bathrooms were clean. Thanks for the good time.
