Worst ride at the boardwalk!! Long wait and the cave is dusty and stuffy. The props are from the caveman era at the boardwalk, and as ancient as the caveman days.

This is a relaxing ride that kids will like as a break from the exciting roller coasters. Its a fun ride to take. I would however only do it if the wait line is reasonable; i.e. its not a Disneyland style ride but more a fun but older ride.

Fun train ride for the kids. The Train is very nice. The tunnel was fun. We went on it 6 times in a row. Great for kids under 9.

Did this often with our young children over the years. Took my elderly parents and grown children back for a "walk down memory lane." Same train, same smells. Some different sets now, but still just good fun.

the cave train is a fun place for all ages! Every winter they revamp it a bit, it is always great at the beginning of summer to check out what has changed since last year.

This ride is a classic - fun exhibits, great way to take a cool break from the beach and rides on a hot summer day.
