Spring is Officially Here at Thunder Mountain Park

It may be a few more weeks until spring actually gets here but spring has sprung here at Thunder Mountain Park! The weather is warming up and we opened up our sluice for the season! Bridal Cave has offered visitors the chance to pan for gemstones from bags of sand (plus a lot more) into our sluice for many years! The beautiful gemstone treasures that are found make excellent trip souvenirs.


What is a sluice?

Just in case you aren't familiar with what we are talking about, here is an explanation. A sluice is a water channel that is controlled at the head by a gate. When the gate is lifted, water flows from a tower through the sluice. Guests are invited to dump a sluice bag full of sand (and more) into the channel of clear, pristine water and pan for the gemstones which are hidden within the sand.

Sluice Bags 

Guests can enjoy finding unique gemstones to take home from panning in our sluice. We offer a variety of bags to choose from with different price points and treasures that you'll fin. 
  • Paydirt 
  • Lucky Strike
  • Emerald Bags
  • Fossil 
  • Motherlode
