My husband and I took a 2 month road trip across the country and this was the best part! I had never heard of this cave until a friend told us about it in the middle of our trip, so we took a detour to check it out and I'm so glad we did! One of the most fun, memorable... More

My girlfriend and I really enjoyed this extended tour I highly recommend it if you want something a bit more than the typical 30 min walk through that most people do :)

Took wife and kids, aging 10 to 16 for a day tour (4 hours) engaging in the "Wild Cave Tour". The tour takes you 265+ feet below the surface to an amazing world, rarely seen outside of television. This is a tour that takes you approx. 5 miles, up and down staircases, and nice walking paths. Note, not for folks... More

My husband and I took the Wild Cave Tour at Mammoth in June 2015 and it was excellent. I've done several of the "normal" tours at the park and this one... which I appreciated so much more! Our main guide was a woman named Tory. As background, I am in my early 30s, female, 5'5" and slender. I run 3-6... More

My girlfriend and I were both a little worried about doing the Wild Cave tour after reading some reviews and viewing some of the pictures of the holes you crawl through, but we were pleasantly surprised. The tour guides were very good at making you feel safe and calm. We're both in our mid 20's, had not had any caving... More

If you go make sure to ride the gingerbread man coaster before you do anything else. It goes 0-60 in .3 seconds. All else was very well, however the site promised virtual fish tours, which were no where to be found... Disappointing.. But not a deal breaker.

We has an awesome experience with the Wild Cave Tour. Our guides were Rose and Jacky. They were both very knowledgeable and made us feel very much at ease with the cave. The tour lasted a full 6.5 hours and was a lot of fun. While not really strenuous it did require a bit of stamina and strength. Most of... More

My girlfriend (58) and I (52) took this tour/experience in the park. It was SPECTACULAR, but be warned, they rangers take things VERY seriously. Be sure to have over the ankle boots with a DEEP tread. One guy almost didn't get to go because his tread was too worn. Fortunately, he had a spare pair of boots in his car.... More

I am 51 and finally went on the Wild Cave Tour after 2 years of attempts and cancelations due to a frozen shoulder or business travel. I was not passing it up this year again, my shoulder had finally unfrozen and it was labor day weekend. A ticket magically became available on Saturday night. I arrived an hour early since... More

My wife and I are both 51, we went on this tour yesterday, along with our 18 year old son. We expected to be sore, and boy are we. Most muscles are sore today, but most annoying are the numerous cuts, scrapes and bruises. Our elbows and forearms took the brunt, and were we wishing we had elbow pads. That... More
