Whatever the weather, this attraction is fun - constant temperature down in the mine, and the fun starts when you're handed your overall and board the little train that takes you inside the mountain. There's a steep wooden slide but for the faint-hearted, there's a...More

Our group had a wonderful evening in the mines, which included a tour and boat ride, sliding down the salt mine and a great catered dinner with music. Wonderful place and so much fun and laughter.
