Its a geyser!! The landscape is beautiful! There are lots of tables and coverings all around to provide shade while you wait for old faithful to erupt. They have recently added bathrooms to their facility, so don't worry about port-o-potties! The goats and sheep were fun to see and feed, they have food you can buy to feed them. The price was fine, 14 for each adult, not a big price to pay for a couple on vacation. There are also lots of info all around the site that talk about the history and science of the geyser. The only thing that kept me from giving them a 5 start rating was the lack of a restaurant. If they had a restaurant that served some simple lunch courses I think they would have this in the bag. Overall, a great place to stop and check out one of three faithful geysers in the world!

Waste of time & money. I paid $14/each to see a 10 sec fountain. Area was terrible: few sheeps and one lama behind a poorly built fence, a fake well that was used as trash can, a wish fountain with out water and only coins. I just think the geyser was overrated. I would have paid $3-$5 and be OK with it.,..but $14? Once inside I realized why they have huge walls that you can't see anything from the outside. The area was in construction, and it really looked like crap.

Absolutely shameful. They are charging $14 per person for entrance to basically a construction site. Tragic. To add insult to injury, the only 'restrooms' they have are port-o-pots out back and the required exit from the geyser area is through the dingy gift shop. Skip it and go to the Petrified Forest... Just a few miles away, significantly more impressive and $10 per person for a much better experience.

At $14 per adult entry it is a little overpriced, but it's hard even so to wipe the stupid grin off your face when they geyser starts sending steaming jets of water dozens of feet into the air. Apparently the weather has been very rainy in Napa Valley recently, so when I went on 8/4/13 the geyser was spouting every 7 minutes or so. As a bonus for young children, there are some sheep at a neighboring farm. Bring carrots or something like that to feed them, and bring Purell to get the sheep slobber off your hands afterwards. The guy taking tickets at the geyser was friendly and gave one of my boys a free pencil.

We almost skipped this based on other reviews. I’m so glad we didn't. We were all fascinated with geyser. In the winter it erupts every 4 minutes. In the summer its 30 to 45 minutes. For once a winter visit is better for something! They have picnic tables and encourage you to bring a picnic lunch. I wish we had. I went and stood under the rain of water it shoots up and was expecting it to be hot but it was cold by the time it got to me. Apparently it’s 350 degrees in the earth. There are not many geysers on the planet and I’m very happy to have seen one. To me the $14 x 4 for the family was insignificant. Oh…children are a little less.

Overpriced, but it is a genuine geyser. You have to watch for several eruptions (which were occurring every 5-7 minutes or so when we watched), because not every eruption will be great. The setup is literally just lawn chairs around a pit in the ground---no obnoxious guard rails or tour guides. However, they've placed some tacky rocks over the geyser in order to make it look more "authentic," which I found annoying. If this is your only chance in life to see a geyser erupt, it's probably worth the price; otherwise, skip it.

Good fun. Bought by new owners who have plans to build pools. Geyser blowing every 5 mins when we visited. Our boys loved it. Nice setting with hills. Feeding goats was fun. Good spot for picnic. Not a full day out but worth seeing nonetheless.
