My two boys were super excited about the gem mining. I will say that they, as well as I, enjoyed the gem mining experience. We did not participate in any other activity they offered. To be honest, I became a little irratated with the lady owner and decided to leave. For this to be an attraction/experience for kids, my children were repeatedly told "NOT TO" several times. Please know that I have good kids BUT they are KIDS. While buying the tickets, my son (whom is autistic) picked up (what he thought was a rock) a bar of soap. Quickly, the lady owner told him that it was soap and to be careful. OK....yes, he should be careful, but what do you expect at a place that is suppose to be FOR KIDS. If they see it they usually are going to touch it. lol. At first, I did not really think much of it, UNTIL a few moments later I heard her telling him "excuse me but that is my bedroom". I looked over at my son and he had his head stuck around the divider that apparently hid her bedroom. I do apologize for my son being nosy, but he did not know you slept there too. Kids do tend to explore like most kids do. After that, I was just ready to leave the building and go mining for gems. We truly did enjoy the gem experience. Really fun! As me and my boys were waiting on the in-laws, I heard the lady owner, again, saying "please don't throw rocks in the pond, it is not like the ocean and the rocks are not taken out with the tide" (or something to that affect). OMG, really lady! I am truly sorry my child threw a rock into the pond. I respect that it is your pond and you do not like any of the thousand rocks you have in your driveway thrown in, but I guess after hearing you tell them (three times) what they could NOT do, I was done with it all. Kids are kids! Maybe you should make your place "Adult friendly." Also, my kids are great kids, not perfect, but respectful. BUT they are KIDS!!!
