  • We so enjoyed our visit today. A few of the adults in our party were reliving childhood memories, and children ages 4-12 experiencing the fun for the first time. The owner and staff made you feel like family. So many stones found! Very nice, clean facility. Everyone is talking tonight about the precious memories made.
