There are only four of its' kind in the entire world, and only one in North America. Here, you'll discover one of the world's most beautiful natural wonders; giant columns stretching from floor to ceiling, delicate soda straws glistening with minerals, tiny cave pearls hidden in crystal-clear water. And best of all, you'll see it close-up from the comfort of a Jeep-drawn tram! « less

The explanation of the entire trip was well scripted. The bending over got a little sore on an old man, but remember this is a cave and a lot easier to ride into then to walk into,

We have been to caves and caverns in Barbados, Virginia, Tennessee and New Brunswick. All have been different. Fantastic Caverns is different too. We were able to ride through these caverns. It was very educational. A group of Women were the first explore these caves. It's $25/pp to tour and I think well worth it.

Had a great time in the caverns. It was fun for the kids because there wasn't a lot of walking and everyone loves a Jeep ride. Informative tour that gave an amazing insight into the age of these caves. It was also fun to see the history of what occurred there over the years. It was enjoyable, and while it... More

Very nice tour. Beautiful caverns. Not a national cavern, it's privately owned. No military or senior discounts.

It was an awesome experience for the girls and enjoyed the tour. It was a little pricey for what you received in my opinion.

The tour is via a jeep pulled wagons. The guide "Rick" was very funny and knew the history of the caverns and... More

Visited this place when I was a kid and they haven't changed on the inside but the outside has become very touristy. They have added a gift shop, a restaurant, a hotel, boat rides on the nearby creek, ziplines, and camping. The cost is around $20 per person but you can find an online coupon for $2.50 off. The tour... More

While my family was on vacation in Springfield MO, we seen the advertisement on the interstate for fantastic caverns. We decided to pull in and try it out. It was AWESOME. I am not one to use the word "educational" in my reviews, but we did appreciate the history of the tour. The tour was also visually pleasing to our... More
