It is a good visit! I've lived in this area my whole life, and only saw it a year or so ago ... it's truly a CAVE, plenty of wet, low areas to navigate. i was entertained!

This place is a waste of time and money. We could not hear what the tour guide said at all he never bother to wait for the whole group before he starts to talk. There is nothing natural about it. It is a man made cave. Also, it is very small, and just a 20 minutes round trip walk. This... More

Went today with my boyfriend and daughter. Had a great time! Garrett, was the BEST tour guide EVER! He was both extremely humorous and knowledgeable. Very personable and friendly with a sense of humor that made the trip that much more fun. Secret Caverns was very hands on and the waterfall underground was absolutely breathtaking! Any questions we had were... More

We did both Howe's Caverns and Secret Caverns and would pick this over Howe's because it's not as developed, more like what it might have been like back in 1929, although the stairs are an improvement to the ladders. We were there right at 10 when it opened, a group of 8, but had to wait for a tour for... More

We visited this past weekend and enjoyed it. It is different than the 2 caves I have visited in Kentucky. Not for those with a fear of tight spaces. There appeared to be very little altering and I felt like it was the raw, real deal.

The bats are gone; but the slippery steps, dripping walls and narrow passageways are here, along with beautiful reflecting ponds and a stunning waterfall! Loved it!

this place is amazingly impressive . going down through staircase is classic and make you feel that it is the real deal that you are going under ground. it has also a waterfall at the end . totally worth for what they charge . wear properly if you are planning to visit the cave is around 52 degree year around...

Well, at the start of the tour you have to climb down 100+ steps so you better wear comfortable walking shoes. It had rained the day before I took the walking tour and it was pretty wet down there. The steps were a little slippery so the guide tried to sweep off the access water. The walkways are narrow, and... More

Upon purchasing our tickets we were told there would be a 15 minute wait, which was no problem as that is quite usual for most cave tours. About a half hour later a tour bus of no less than 50 people came in and lined up at the entrance of the cave. We were then told that we would be... More
