Costed 192$ for the two of us but it's worth every bit of it. Zip lining twice and Tree Top Walking. Friendly staff. Duration of the Tour is 3 hours. If you take this tour you get Twin Zip lining for 10$ each which is super fun. You can control your speed on this. Or you can Buy tickets and... More

The caves area is icy and mudy, no worning signs. I fell down because of ice and mud, very dangerous, poorly managed.

The Eco Adventure Tour was so much fun, I would totally do it again. Our guides were fun and knowledgeable about the area and history and the zip-line at the end was quite the thrill. The caves were gorgeous and well kept for the amount of traffic they see.

Christina: Thank you for your five star review of our Eco Adventure Tour. Nothing makes our team happier than to hear we ‘amazed’ our guests. The guides are well versed in geology, history and ecology and truly enjoy pointing out the flora and fauna unique to this region. The 300 ft. forest zipline is a nice warm up to get... More

Scenic Caves has a wide variety of activities to amuse families of all ages. My last visit was with my four grandchildren! The walk up and down the paths to the various caves and lookouts from the top of the Niagara Escarpment was breath taking. Good laughs all around as we all squeezed through the dark Fat Man's Misery.

Dear Marg: Thank you for your five star review of Scenic Caves from last July. We are so pleased that we amused all your grandkids at all age levels. Next time you visit, keep in mind the age and height/weight restrictions for the Thunderbird Twin Zipline and the operating schedule. The views from the Twin Zipline will blow you away!... More

some of the caves were closed, we were given a discount but missed out on about 5 caves - only discount was 5.00 not sure if that was a deal... It's a good hike up and I wouldn't recommend small children going

Dear MW: Thank you for visiting us and for your comments. Sorry if you were disappointed that you were unable to walk through all the caves/caverns. Mother Nature has not been cooperative! This year, we experienced a long, snowy winter and cold, rainy spring. As a result, the caves remained filled with snow. Despite our efforts to shovel out pathways,... More

Elizabeth – thank you for your enthusiastic review of the guided Eco Tour. In three hours, adventurers cover a lot of ground, both above in the treetops and below in the caves. The two ziplines connecting the experiences heighten the fun . During the spring, the Thunderbird Twin Zip line operates Friday, Saturday and Sundays. We recommend visitors check the... More

Me and my hubby did the ice cave tour. It was nice and something different. We enjoy nature so we appreciated it. Not an activity you do twice. It's one of those one time experiences you just don't do over and over. A little pricey but me and my hubby were fortunate that we were the only two on the... More

Thank you for your comments regarding your ski trip to Blue Mountain. We are confused because Scenic Caves Nature Adventures is not open during April. Our property reopens (weather-permitting) for green season activities from May to October. Nontheless, we’re pleased that you enjoyed your trip to the Blue Mountain area. More

Went for the first time to snowshoe the trails with my husband. Really well marked and groomed. Enjoyed to variety of flat vs hills. Be careful around the ski trails as the snowshoe trails cross over them a few times. Make sure you step over so the x-country trails don't get chewed up. A few great look outs that are... More

We went for cross country skiing at Scenic Cave. It is a fantastic place. The trails are set up as Easy, Moderate and Difficult. This is helpful as we are non skiers.
