Safari Shuttle Now Open

Posted on June 2nd, 2015

IMG_0728The Safari Shuttle is brand new! The Shuttle experience is a one hour trip that goes into some areas that are included in the 3-hour Salt Safari hike and some new ones that aren’t. The trip lasts about an hour and it gives you a chance to go out into the raw mine. That’s something all the employees love – going into the raw mine. The great thing is that you don’t have to walk! 

Our first Shuttle Guests were Bradley Smith & his daughter, Tiffany, from Fort Riley, Kansas. They both agreed that picking a souvenir rock in the Shuttle was more fun as the area was larger to choose from. Tiffany liked having a light that she controlled looking at what she wanted to see. They thought an hour was the perfect amount of time! Thanks for visiting, Bradley and Tiffany! Thanks to Myron for capturing the moment!
