$20 for Two Prospector’s Dream Buckets ($40 Value)

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, and indoor flumes mean that the mine stays open in all weather.

Elijah Mountain Gem Mine

A vast wooden bucket—printed with the words "world's largest gem mine bucket"—dominates Elijah Mountain Gem Mine's landscape. The immense receptacle, standing at 7 feet high and 8 feet wide, holds up to 30,000 pounds of dirt strewn with gems, jewels, and fossils. 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 rock shop and 3,000-square-foot antique mall are 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.
