Mineview.

Mineview at Hull Rust-Mahoning Mine

One of the world's largest open pit iron ore mines. Gift shop and great viewing area with mining equipment for kids (and adults) to climb on. Free admission, donations accepted. Located at the same spot as "get your picture in a giant bucket."

Pose Inside a Giant Bucket

Besides the photo op provided by the huge mining bucket, the park also has a huge dump truck with stairs provided so you can climb up into the cab yourself. The overlook of the mine pit is pretty cool too. A sign at the park says it will open this year (2010) on May 13th, 2010 and be open 9am-5pm, 7 days a week.
