I find myself scratching my head with wonder at anyone thinking that the Lost Mines of Atlantis is an attraction of any sort. It's like something someone cobbled together at the last minute. If I had little kids who would perhaps find it interesting for a half hour or so...perhaps I'd take them. The attached store is more interesting with... More

Your a NUT ! You think there are Ogies going on in the back room??? So your the "Writers Voice" of Sebring Florida, you poor pathetic creature. You were scratching your head because you probably have fleas. The Lost Mines of Atlantis is renown as having the highest yield of any mining flume in the world. The reason it's closed... More

Had some friends in town and out of the blue decided to go "mining". They owners were so friendly and accommodating as we had no idea what we were doing and we all left with some great gems. The girls spent a lot of time exploring the gift shop which is in itself worth the trip and not like any... More

I can't tell you how many times we have passed by this place and not even known it existed. Just the other day my wife and I were looking online for crystal mining places close to home and were surprised to see there was one so close to us in Florida! (Next closest would be North Carolina) We are so... More

Second time with the kids here, and everybody had a lot of fun. It's simple: you choose your bucket and you start looking for gems and crystals. The kids get so excited to find nice ones, the Greenman will explain you exactly what you found and which ones are really valuable and rare. He will provide bottled water, umbrellas to... More

We drove several hours to take our 7 year old son "Mining". After a detailed explanation of the different buckets (Large variety, something for everyone) we dug in. The variety and quantity of the different stones and crystals was unbelievable. My wife and I were quite literally shocked (We remembered "Panning for gems" as kids in the mountains and getting...

We go every winter when in the area. The kids love it and ask all year long when we are going back! Super friendly staff and knowledgeable about gems and stones. Plan on coming back next year again!

We drove 2 hrs to get to this location and it was well worth the drive. He was very knowledgeable on rocks and gems. He took time to actually answer questions and seemed like he loved teaching us what things were and a good use for them. We have been to several gem mining places in North Carolina and South...

We love to visit local Florida places of interest. The Lost Mines of Atlantis was great. The owner was very knowledgable about all the stones and crystals as well as the items for sale in his shop. You pay for a bucket and pan it in a screen in the water- similar to gold panning but you get a much... More
