I had done this tour 20 years ago when in college, but had completely forgotten about it until a friend reminded me of it. We were up in the Poconos for the weekend and looking for something to do with the kids on a cloudy day. This was a great option. The tour was very informative and definitely gave you a feel of what life was like in the coal mine. The kids loved it and so did the adults. We didn't have time to visit the rest of the park, but there is a large playground there that the kids wanted to go on -- maybe next time we are in the area. I would definitely recommend this if you are in the Pocono region and looking for something to do.
