In a Nutshell

Mine allows customers to become a prospector from the 1800s and mine for gems in real wooden flumes.

The Fine Print

Expiration varies. Amount paid never expires. Limit 1 per person, may buy 1 additional as a gift. Limit 1 per person for birthday party option. Limit 1 per visit. Valid only for option purchased.

Some adults have children so they have a socially acceptable reason to eat at novelty pizza arcades and see movies with Shreks in them. Put some fun in the oven with this kid-friendly Groupon.

Choose from Three Options

  • $49 for a birthday party for eight (a $112 value)
  • $10 for one Prospector’s Dream Bucket (up to a $20 value)
  • $19 for two Prospector’s Dream Buckets (up to a $40 value)

Gem-mine birthday party guests each receive a 1-gallon bucket (a $10 value), a little miner's hat (a $3 value), and a treasure coin (a $1 value) for the rock shop. In addition to the mining activities, which have no set time limit, parties have access to umbrella-shaded picnic tables for spreads of food and cake.

Each Prospector’s Dream Bucket holds 2.5 gallons of dirt and gems that kids can sift through with water from the flume. Mining minors can take home whatever treasures they find.


Though Elijah Mountain Gem Mine sometimes features a discounted price online, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.

Elijah Mountain Gem Mine

Families fill their buckets with the gem-studded dirt, strap on their prospector hats, and sift through the loot with the help of wooden flumes. The flumes, all-weather and wheelchair-accessible, wash away dirt to reveal fossils, quartz crystals, uncut emeralds, and other treasures to take home. Miners can opt for specialty buckets that contain higher concentrations of certain stones and fossils. A 3,000-square-foot rock and fossil shop is stocked with sundries from the United States and Europe that, unlike precious stones or the White House's water slide, are displayed in plain sight. Enjoy the petting zoo which features baby goats, chickens and a rabbit.
