If you love the TV show, this place is a must. Allows you to forge, with trained metal workers, items including knifes and decorative items. It may be a bit pricy for the knives but worth it for the experience with a lasting treasure. Book...More

prices vary depending on what you pick--the smaller easier items are less expensive. I believe our family of 4 (kids 13 and 10) did it for around 50-60 total for 4 pieces. Very fun. Well worth it. Something different.
