Panning for gems.

Black Hills Caverns

We took the Adventure Tour and it was great. They said it was a bit strenuous, but it wasn't that bad, just a few flights of narrow stairs. My 10-year-old twin boys loved the panning for gems and we eventually had to drag them away. They would have stayed all day. Get the big bucket, it's worth it!
