For something to do with young kids I give this attraction high marks. Our favorite part was the short “train” ride to feed the animals (deer, emus) there were also baby goats only 3 days old and a small pony. We all had a good laugh at the animals and enjoyed the hands on experience.
The train is simply a few trailers pulled by a tractor. The safety rails/bars were too wide and there were no belts so it was not safe for our young kids, we had to hold them on our lap and lets face it kids just don’t want to sit still very long. I think they have wide bars to allow the deer to stick their head into the “train”, but I’d rather keep my kids in safely!
The cave-entrance is inside the main ticket area/gift shop. Say hello to the old parrot and crack a geode! So, okay we brought our 3 and 1 1/2 yr old. This was a bit of a self inflicted issue, but for those with older kids it wouldn’t be a problem. Our youngest was just bored and wanted to move, no where for her to go or be set down which made it hard on us, some times I tell myself it’s just not worth the hassle and other times I think these things are what make good memories. So the cave with kids was not ideal. We managed it and nearly banged our heads a few times, very slick surfaces, including slippery metal hand rails. The cave is small in terms of walking distance so I felt like the tour actually was too long for us, about 45 min. We seemed to make several stops and the talking just drones on. It was 40 outside and 72 in the cave, I wish we had known and we would have left behind our jackets and hats and mittens. It was uncomfortable.
Observation tower-great views, also some safety hazards present, lots of puddles and a door wide open with death stairs.
Gravity house-take or leave, not stroller friendly, obviously, so again sort of a throw away for us.
Overall the staff were friendly, the gift shop is cute, the attractions seemed to offer a good variety and we were there for over 2 hrs, so it was a good visit for us. $45 for a family outing, expensive so we probably won’t be back.
