Big advertisements and what a let down. You can get rocks cheaper at other stops on the road and tee-shirts for half the price at the other little places. This was a clean place and nice people, but too expensive and not worth your time.

We went through the mystery house. It was fun, my daughter was amazed! The gift shop had a little bit of everything and was fun to see!

Went in to just look but stayed for awhile. Enjoyed looking at the different items. Bought some earrings and a funny plaque. Friendly associate.

This place is a pretty cool stop if you are in the are visiting caves. We stopped to pick up a few larger rocks for our 'collection'. They are pretty pricey but they have a good selection. The people were also really nice and we left happy and not too much $$$ left our pocket. Will definitely visit the next... More

I had not been to Big Mike's since I was a child, but it was just as I remembered. Lots of rocks, and big chunks of colored glass. Lots of kitschy souvenirs. But I loved it. The people are nice, and the prices are decent. Roadside America at it's best.

It's touristy, yes, but that's what we are all about. My daugther likes to collect rocks and had a blast picking out just the right ones to add to her collection. They had some good sales and had plenty of rocks in all prices ranges to choose from. Good place to stop!

The normal junky tourist trap. The whole area looks very run down just like the rest of cave city/horse cave area.

We stopped in to kill done time. My kids have a rock collection and loved the huge selection of rocks. Some were pretty pricey, but the Wonder Woman working there offered great suggestions and both kids left happy.

We stopped by to kill some time was nicer than expected. They have lots to choose from in their shops and are reasonably priced. The mystery house was neat.

First of all, the stores (2 on site) offered great selection and good prices to shop for souvenirs. Then, for $1 you can go through their "fun house". OMG......if you have any difficult with gravitational fun, avoid it. I felt sick for about an hour after it since it made me so dizzy. The kids were absolutely amazed and had... More
