It was a hot day one of the days that almost hit 90. Our guide was great. He knew his history I was amassed at the ongoing work to preserve the history . The cave was great . Its hard to believe how this was all dug out. I would recommend it highly.

Found this attraction while in NY for a weekend. We have been to this area many times and didnt realize this attraction existed. Worth the trip. Very educational and quite interesting. The only downfall was there was a lot of walking however interesting history. I made it so can you. Just something different to do in a town in western... More

We went to the Lockport Cave and Underground Boat Ride tour. We got there right at 11:00, so the 11:00 tour was full, unfortunately. The woman at the ticket counter was very nice and gave us some things we could do to occupy ourselves for the hour. We basically walked around by the locks. There was an Erie Canal History... More

We were the only ones on the tour. Excellent one on one with tour guide. Guide extremely knowledgeable about history of Lockport. Actual care portion wasn't very long. Very cool and relaxing to walk along the canal and then into the cave. Highly recommend if your in Lockport, NY.

I visited this attraction last week and learned quite a bit about the locks in Lockport and the subsequent creation of the manmade cave. It was a pleasent afternoon tour along the side of the locks and very informative. The manmade cave was eerie and damp which created an exciting atmosphere for storytelling. I recommend this tour.

The "cave" was great and very informative. Just so you know - It's really an underground piping system - "cave" is dug out of the rocks with occasional large piping. We started down the steps and watched a boat go through the lock. Saw the reconstruction of the Historic 5 lock system.Underground tour of water powered industries. Nice boat ride... More

Must say this was a fun hour and a half. Our guide, Peter, was great with facts and fun. Learned. More in this short adventure than I did in school! It's a little damp and you get kissed by the cave but that's just part of the enjoyment. It's also a great place to cool off! Thanks again Peter!

The cave and underground boat ride was well worth the price. The tour guide was very knowledgeable on the area too. There is some walking and stairs, but children and slower older adults were able to navigate the area. It was interesting and fun to learn about our history.

Let me first say this tour was great and the tour guide was very informative. But I should also warn that we did not realize how much walking was involved in this tour. The boat ride was at the very end of the tour. If you have small children be prepared to walk and wear sneakers. I would also recommend... More

Took the grandkids to the Lockport Cave and Boat Ride on a warm spring day while visiting Buffalo for a family wedding. It was the opening weekend for the Cave but the crew was well organized. Started with a walking history and view of the locks ending at the "tunnel" (cave). We had a guided walk into the tunnel that... More
