The cave features a 9 foot soda straw the longest known in the Ozarks, and two bottomless lakes. One of the lakes was discovered in 1993 in the "Silent Splendor" section which made national news. This was Arkansas’ most delicate discovery. Make sure to bring your camera! Gift Shop, Snacks, Picnic area and camping available. « less

This is the only cave we visited while in the area, so I am not sure how it would compare to others in the Ozarks - but for us it was just perfect. The guide was very good and the walk was not that bad. The history and stories that go with the cave are really very interesting and something... More

We have never been to a cave before. Very happy we did. Tour guide was very knowledgeable and interesting! The formations and lakes were spectacular! Great photos and fairly easy walking. Must see in person!

A different experience. The cave was some what primative but a must see. Mo/Maureen. the guide, had a passion for what she does, and it showed. Very educational. Worth the visit. We have been to a lot of caves, but learned a lot. Thanks Mo.

The cave itself is neat and not too cold. It's a smaller cave, but still full of interesting stories and things to see. My only complaint would be with our tour guide. I think she was a teenager (acted like it anyway) and she was just not good. She kind of had an attitude and some things she said were... More

By all the previous reviews we had with our youngest guide, Ally, we found nothing but positive comments. If something negative happened we would like to know. Our tour is an hour and 15 min. and 1/3 mile, so when she said small cave, I was confused that she may have been at another place. More

This wasn't my first time in a cave...so to me, nothing set it apart from any of my other experiences. In fact, I've been in caves much lower below ground with waterfalls at the end. However, I did enjoy myself on the $15 hour tour with a very knowledgeable guide. But my friend, a first timer in a cave, LOVED... More

I had only been to one cave before, in Silver Dollar City. Was kind of thinking this one might disappoint because Marvel Cave is so awesome, and this one is privately owned... I was wrong. Our guide (Jesse I believe) was so enthusiastic and fun, and looooves his job. And that just makes it even more cool. The first part... More

Me and some friends went to the cosmic caverns, it was very enjoyable, you get up close and personal with a lot of the formations and the guide was very funny and Intuitive, I would have the say my best part is it's only 62 degree's in the cave.
