Florida's new Bone Valley Experience lets families dig and discover ancient treasures

Central Florida is home to one of the richest fossil beds in the world and now you can safely dig in it to discover ancient treasures! So get ready to unleash your inner Indiana Jones at the family-friendly Bone Valley Experience!

The new fossil dig attraction is located 90 minutes south of Orlando in Wauchula, Florida! The many ancient treasures you can dig out are estimated to be 3 to 10 million years old.

Co-owners Thomas and Janie Hodge joined Good Day Orlando to showcase what visitors can unearth: a plethora of shark teeth. Some small. Some big. Some Megladons! 

What was once part of the ocean millions of years is now an exciting safe dry dig that yields "I found one!" every once in a while.  Not just teeth, but all kinds of unique ancient bones, like vertebrae.

You show up with comfortable clothing, water, food, sunscreen, and a chair. Bone Valley provides the shovel, sifter, gloves, bucket, and bathroom. 

At the end of the day, you’ll go home with whatever you discover -- some of it can be worth thousands of dollars!

Right now, tickets for adults are $150. Children 17 and under are free! Reservations are required, as it only operates Friday thru Sunday 8 a.m. to 2 p.m.
