Colossal Cave Mountain Park
Colossal CaveCave Tour for 2 Adults and 2 Children

Value $23

The cave is called "dry" or "dormant" which means that, due to a lack of water, the formations are not growing right now.

Colossal Cave, which is on the National Register of Historic Places, had been used for centuries by prehistoric peoples when it was "discovered" in 1879. Since then it has been the object of interest and attention by people ranging from train robbers to a President of the University of Arizona. The first tours were taken through the unimproved Cave in 1923, tours which involved ropes and lanterns.

Thanks to the Civilian Conservation Corps, who constructed the buildings, walkways, and wiring in the mid-1930's, today's tours are very comfortable. The hand-set flagstone walkways and handrails are exactly as installed by the C.C.C. These days, however, Colossal Cave is wearing new lights and is more breathtakingly beautiful than ever before. (We're proud to say that the lights are energy-saving compact fluorescents.)

The Dolly Steamboat
The Dolly Steamboat90-minute Nature Cruise for Two
(480) 827-9144
Canyon Lake, AZ

Value $28
Canyon Lake is 14 miles northeast of Apache Junction, AZ. along the historic Apache Trail (State Highway 88.) The Dolly Steamboat is docked at the Canyon Lake Marina.

The Dolly Steamboat carries on the tradition of Tour Boats on Arizona's Desert Lakes that started in 1925 upon completion of Mormon Flat Dam. George Moody launched the "Geronimo" and started lake tours labeled "The Boat Trip Unique-The Junior Grand Canyon Tour."
Over the succeeding years, the US Department of Agriculture Forest Service included Canyon Lake in the Tonto National Forest. Eventually, the Forest Service permitted the development of a Marina, Restaurant and Campground on a 28 acre site alongside Hwy.88, The Apache Trail. Paul "PK" Kennedy and Dolly bought the Marina and Campground and their family began to develop the facility.
PK's dream of building an old fashioned riverboat then emerged and a 48 passenger double decked sternwheeler was soon sailing as an attraction that encouraged year 'round visitors. In 1987, Dolly's Steamboat was sold to the Roger Grimh family. Roger enlarged the boat by adding more floatation, length and width, tripling its capacity from 48 to 160 passengers. Dolly (aka Arizona's Dolly) is tour boat Marketing Manager and features The Dolly Steamboat on her Web page as her #1 "Unique Attraction."

Out of Africa Wildlife Park is not a zoo or a circus; it is truly an experience. It is a garden-like setting that allows visitors to actually encounter the kingdom of the wild. The animals come to you in nine unrehearsed, educational programs everyday. There are no tricks, no training and no facades - everything is real. In Tiger Splash, the park's most popular show, the staff is chased by tigers, who dive in a giant pool after their human friends. The animals demonstrate primal behavior in which the humans are the prey. We teach them to hunt.

You won't find concrete sidewalks here, you are surrounded by nature. This place is a safe haven for animals, a present day Noah's ark." Mickey Ollson is the Director and Founder of the Wildlife World Zoo. He opened the zoo in 1984, after several years of raising exotic animals, mainly birds. From the beginning he has believed that exotic animals are the stars of the show, up- close and personal for the visitors.
