It's touristy, sure, but boy is that something to see! Don't miss one of the best things to see in Berks County while here!

A short scenic ride away (for me) is this historical geological wonder. After a short walk up a steep hill/stairs, you come upon Crystal Cave. The sights, smells, sounds within the cave are wondrous. The tour guide was informative and knowledgeable. She spoke loudly and clearly for the group of thirty we were placed into. It took us a leisurely... More

The cave itself is pretty cool, but avoid holidays. Started with a too long film that was very dated and couldn't be heard because people let their children stomp, run around and scream during the presentation. Staff needs to let then know they must stay in their seats or leave. Same situation in the cave. The kids kept screaming or... More

Nice place to visit if you like geology, rock formation and caves. Very nice guided tour. Some steep staircases and metal bridge. Kids will enjoy it. The food was not bad..the usual stuff - chicken nuggets, hot dogs etc. The ice cream shop has some nice varieties. There is also a museum and panning for gems. Overall - a good... More

Other than for people with claustrophobia, this is a great day trip which has all the things you'd expect from a trip to a cave. In addition to the cave itself, there is "panning for gems" ($6), which is popular for kids. There is also a mini-golf course ($4.50 per person), which is an old style mini-golf course that doesn't... More

The history of the cave and how they came to be was very interesting although the hill leading up to the cave was very steep!

My son's into rocks, crystals and geology, so this was an obvious day trip. The cave was larger and more impressive than Lost River Caverns, but didn't have the water feature that made the other cave interesting. One word of warning...there are a few steep staircases and a metal bridge that will cause problems for those afraid of heights. My... More

The cave tour was very entertaining for the whole family. There are steps and uneven ground to consider(it is a cave), but it was a nice tour in a very scenic cave. The staff did an excellent job of explaining the history and story of the grounds. Enta\ertaining for the whole family.

I live only 30 min away from this cave. I went once as a child, and felt it was time to take my daughter as I felt she was at a good age for it, (IMO 7 or older). It's a nice small cave that you should do at least once in your life if you live in the area.... More

A typical cave in the Appalachian mts. On the smaller end of the spectrum. Price is a little high relative to others from PA to VA that we have visited. The trainee guide was green, the veteran was quite polished. There is mini golf on the grounds. They have the gem mining that is a fixture at many caves. A... More
