THE HOIST

A feat unto itself, the passage to Strataca bored through frozen aquifer and countless layers of rock and silt making room for the 6-ton hoist. This double-decker wonder transports up to 30 passengers on the descent — 650 feet below.

 

PERMIAN ROOM

Intriguing as it is palatial, the walls of the Permian Room act as ancient scrolls of the earth revealing secrets of the strata formed by the Permian Sea long ago. Don’t miss the opportunity to experience the Permian Room in its full grandeur, only at Strataca.

THE DARK RIDE

Take a 30 minute tour on a tram through an area of the mine that includes lit areas explaining the challenges and unique solutions required to keep mines safe and functional.

You also get to collect a souvenir piece of salt!

SALT MINE EXPRESS

Journey into a raw portion of the salt mine where virtually
everything is exactly as it was left over 50 years ago.
“What goes into the mine stays in the mine.”
This is a narrated, guided tour.

 

GE ENGINE NO. 2

One of only three such engines ever built, the GE Engine No. 2 is now on display outside of Strataca after serving the salt mine faithfully through 1963.
