Experience the thrill of excavation, just like a palaeontologist, in this simulated outdoor dig.
Children under 12 must be accompanied by a paid adult registered in the program.
Participants must be at least 5 years of age. This is due to the hiking distance, the use of tools, and the program content.
Wheelchairs are not permitted due to the uneven terrain. People with physical limitations may find the hike difficult.
In case of inclement weather, an indoor version of the program will be offered.
