Big Thunder is a fun place to visit for a quick introduction to the mining industry and a bit of history about the area mines. The tour is interesting and does give you a glimpse into what miners when through. Tour takes about 40 minutes as you walk into and back out of a 600 ft mine.
The staff were interesting to say the least. Many shades of hair and multiple piercings. The woman selling tickets could not have been less interested to be there and liked to complain about the rest of the staff. At one point she cussed about the tour guide that was suppose to be ready to go next.
Overall this was a fun experience. I would recommend it as a couple hour side attraction...but do not expect a highly polished operation.
