We did the tunnel tour only. (There are other tour options here to close from.). Our guide was Stewart and we all thought that he did such an excellent job at making it interesting and entertaining. We walked up the stairs through the conveyor belt tunnel that takes you to the outside top entrance of the mine. The only thing is that you can’t go far into the mine because it’s been blocked off, so really you only go into the front entrance of it. We had all expected that we were going to go further into the mine so were a little disappointed. However still an interesting piece of history and we were all glad that we experienced walking in the footsteps of the miners, ....and especially thanks to Stewart for making it so interesting!! If you are a family on a low travel budget then you might find this expensive. It cost the three of us $75 for the one tour. I’m sure they use the $ to keep the mine in good condition so I can see the cost reasoning. Maybe next time we will try a different tour.

We went after the hoodoos and decided this place had so much to offer that we should come back when we had more time. Took the tunnel, tipple and unmentionable tour. All very good. My teenagers review was that it was definitely more interesting then they had thought it would be!

This mine is in great shape. The staff are extremely knowledgeable. Fun for all ages!

It’s a cheap entrance fee but be prepared to pay for everything little thing extra.

It’s nice to see some of the money raise from tours going back in to keeping the buildings standing. They have done a good job of not replacing the aged look of the buildings with newer woods.

There is a working coal train woot woot!

All in all, this was a great step into the past.

Our tour guide on the train ride told many funny stories and was very good at giving us safety information because the ride was like no other - loud, rough and FUN!
