Treasure Hunt at Gold Mountain
Stake your claim on all the fun at Treasure Hunt at Gold Mountain! Hunt for treasure at this exciting, interactive adventure opening on March 12th. Experience the Alabama Gold Rush of 1829 as you “shop” in the General Store for provisions, build a cabin out of child-size faux logs, pan for “gold” in the sluice, play traditional games, learn about the Trail of Tears, try your hand at pioneer chores and much more. Clues are given along the way so you can find “gold nuggets” along with tons of fun.
Follow the signs as you embark on your journey, read instructions for each activity, and learn a hint to find a hidden panful of gold nuggets. Children can take one gold nugget from each pan they find, and at the end they will weigh their findings and figure out how much their haul is worth before taking their treasure home. Every station will show visitors a little bit about pioneers’ or miners’ lives in the 1800s, and the engaging hands-on activities throughout the park will give even our youngest guests a fun memory of what they have learned.
The Gold Mountain activities are geared towards children ages 3-11. Access to the Treasure Hunt at Gold Mountain is included with general admission. If you can’t enjoy opening day with us don’t worry – this program will run throughout the summer until September 5th.
