Mr Happy Gem Mining logoMister Happy Gem Mining 

Kids will love to pan for gems at the Mister Happy Gem Mining, located at Sky High.  Cost is $8 for a 3 pound bag of gems,  $12 for a 5 pound bag of gems or $24 for the Motherlode 10 pound bag.

Targeted to children as young as 2, the experience mimics old fashioned panning for gold. Each miner purchases a bag of sand that contains either gems or fossils. The contents of the bag are dumped into a frame with a screen on the bottom. Miners wash the sand away with water that runs through a 65 foot long sluice and the treasures are left in the pan. An identification card is included for children to learn more about their gems or fossils.

At the apex the car begins its thrilling 2,490 foot descent zigzagging and spiraling down through the woods. There are 15 curves, 12 waves, 2 jumps and a giant spiral along the length of the ride. The average grade is 15.2% with a maximum of 23.6%. Riders can accelerate or decelerate using handles on the sides of the car.
