Bubba T’s will pick you up at your location in the valley or you can meet us at the World's Biggest Dinosaur where your East tour begins. From here we start our adventure travelling through Drumheller and heading East toward the Atlas Coal Mine. With stops at the Suspension Bridge in Rosedale, The Hoodoos and The Little Ghost Town of Dorothy, you will have ample time to get out to explore and immerse yourself in the beauty and history of the Drumheller Valley. Arriving at the Atlas Coal Mine (admission included) you will be taken on a 45-minute guided tour of the last Coal Mine that was closed in the valley and the only one to remain standing. After your guided tour, you will have plenty of time to wander the grounds and take in the history of what it was like work the life as a coal miner as so many did back in the rush of the coal mining days of the early 1900’s. Our next stop, we will drive to the town of East Coulee which back in the day had a population of 3800 people. Along with numerous businesses, churches and schools this once boom town is now home to about 120 people. Here we will stop in at the East Coulee School Museum (admission included) for a chance to take in the history of what it was like back in the school days of the coal mining times. Back on-board Bubba T’s Bus we will cross over the 11 bridges leading us to the historical Last Chance Saloon in the town of Wayne, Alberta. Here you will have the opportunity to grab some lunch and a beverage at the original saloon built back in the early 1900’s. Great food options are available and take in the scenery of the famous Last Chance Saloon with numerous relics, stories and yes, even original bullet holes in the walls. If you would like, you can also pack a picnic lunch that you can store on the bus and enjoy while we stop in this amazing little town (must provide your own cooler). Next time you are in the area take the opportunity to book a room at the attached Rosedeer Hotel where they say the third floor is shut off to the public because it is said to be haunted!!! Leaving Wayne we will head back to Drumheller where we will stop and give you the chance to walk around the beautiful downtown area exploring the many shops, sit at the outdoor patios enjoying a beverage or an ice cream. Also, a perfect chance to get those photos with all the dinosaurs located throughout the downtown core. After finishing up downtown we regretfully have come to the end of the day on Bubba T’s East tour. We will drive you back where our adventure began together, and you can relax after an exciting day of seeing what the East side of the Drumheller Valley has to offer. Hopefully our newfound friendship does not end here and you would love to book our Bubba T’s West Tour to see the rest of the Drumheller Valley as well as our newest attraction, Barneys Adventure Park.
