I like caves and this is nice one. The staff was very nice. The walk up and down to the entrance is harder then the walk in the cave. Nice place to see.

This was our first cave experience. It was interesting. They give you headphones & u are self guided throughout the cave. Not expensive. 57 degrees all year round so u might want to wear a light jacket. Got some good photos!

This was a really cool cave. We really lilked the self guided tour, it gave us time to stop and look when we wanted and we didn't feel rushed.

Call me a little adventurous. Actually, this is so different, I've been twice. It's really fun and a little juvenile for us adults. I think it's a relaxing on a hot day. It is a cave and it's cool, not cold, inside. It has headphones to guide you through the cave. Fun!

Onyx Cave is a short drive from Eureka Springs for those looking to scratch the spelunking bug. A self guided tour with headphones. I thought at first it might be a little uncomfortable, but once we got into the cave, it was barely noticable. 30 minutes long and informative.

Would visit again--not a huge cave, but really interesting. Lots of drippy stalagmites/stalactites (?) and underground water system. We were the only ones there when we visited and had the cave to ourselves. It's supposed to be a self-guided tour with audio headphones, but we didn't use them. It's 54 degrees all year long, so take a jacket. Was $7.50... More

I have a special place in my heart for this poor cave. As a caver and a member of the NSS, this cave had at one time the potential to be an awesome self-guided touring cave, but alas, it has been heavily damaged by folks who feel they have to touch everything they see. The tour is headphone guided on... More

The cave is exhausted. It's nearly dead. Over commercialized through the years. I love caves but not this one.
