Each passenger receives a bag of mine tiling's , a brief history of the mine and use of the sluice to prospect for their very own gem stones they can bring home!
You may also purchase tickets the day of the event for all trains although we advise that you purchase your tickets in advance.
Trains to and from the mine depart every hour. Stay at the mine as little as an hour or as long as you like!
