We are temporarily closed.

Consolidated Gold Mines is a small business. We value every dollar our business earns. This business supports our family, and the family of our staff. The recent news and fears over COVID-19 have been on our minds and we thought we could weather the storm and continue to operate as normal. However, we value the smile on your face more than the dollar you bring. We value your safety more than making a ticket sale. We value the safety of our staff and their family at home. We value doing the right thing more than the next sale. This is a hard decision, one we have never had to make before, but one we are willing to make now for everyone’s safety.
Effective immediately, we will close operations to the public based on recommendations by the CDC and the Governor’s Office posted last night.

It is important to know that we have had no known cases of the virus among our visitors. None of our employees are sick. We have no reason to believe our increased cleaning procedures were not working. We just want to be overly cautious in a time of uncertainty.

When the time is right, we will announce our re-opening. When we re-open we hope that you will come out to see us in record numbers. We will need your support in the coming days. We have always said that we have the best customers in the world and I truly believe that. You are our friends and family. We wish you all good health and pray for our nation’s healing.
