Worth waiting around for (it goes every hour on the hour) - explore the entire premises - it's fascinating....not something you'd probably go see every day, but seeing it once is cool

Okay it's not Old Faithful, but it does not profess to be. This little town has its own pretty impressive geyser and atop a hill of mineral deposits. The geyser has a valve (no kidding) so it blows every hour on the hour. That makes...More

The Geyser is a nice way to make a quick stop to stretch your legs and get out of the car while passing through. Neat piece of history for this town. Goes off on the hour, every hour.

I like geysers and the history of this one was interesting to learn. Worth a stop! The geyser is on a timer and it erupts for about five minutes. The walk around the geyser up to the observation deck is pretty and not too long.

My understanding is that they do not but I saw variance from their advertised norm in April when it went 7 minutes after the top of the hour. It's conceivable it went off early or you weren't there right at the hour change... More
