At the first glance, this appears to be an amusement park for children. The second glance allows you to appreciate the architecture, furnishings, rooms of a much earlier time. The trip down into the mine, as well as the exhibition of melting gold was extremely valuable and educational.

This was a business trip. There was an exhibition going on within the park. It appeared to be simplest to stay at the hotel. The adventure of the old style bathtub with claw feet, all the plumbing, fittings, and the old/reconstructed room was quite an experience.

No complaints about any of the food or meal served within the complex.

If anybody is interested in mining/gold/historical- reconstructed facilities, then this is worth certainly a visit.

Yes, the visit was some years ago, but so much is remembered and recalled. Native dancing, as well as the big casino/evening buffet across the street.

I went with my partner for the day and did not get around all of it. maybe because we took our time to take it all in. We saw a few good traditional shows, staff were very friendly and happy. a must to visit for a fun day.

It is a nice park to spend one day. Attractions are quite good. Easy access to the park which has a big car park.

Great rides for young and old. Also, some not-so-thrilling ones for those faint-hearted. the kids enjoyed the puppet shows and games as well as the science area and gold-digging.
