Took my boys on a summer day to escape the heat and humidity. I had a coupon from the Kids Stuff book (I believe the Entertainment Book has a coupon as well). The coupon was for free child with an adult purchase. So paid $13.50 for myself, and $9.50 for my son and my 3 yr old was free. Once... More

Always see the signs when traveling through the area, so decided to break up our latest trip and visit the cave. Nice historical movie at the beginning of the tour and our guide was very knowledgeable of the cave and the formations. Nothing spectacular, but it is an interesting tour. Gift shop very much the standard tourist stop variety.

Crystal Cave is a horrible cave! First you pay. Then you watch a movie that was made in the late 80's. Then a high school kids takes you through a well paved, completely lite cave and points out cave formations. Most have animal names but you can tell that is is a very scripted speech. They is NO crystals in... More

Visited the Crystal Cave in Kutztown last weekend and was not thrilled. Have not been there in many years and was more impressed when I was younger. After a short film we went into the cave with a very pleasant young female guide. The tour is very informative, but just a bit short in my eyes. The cave formations are... More

We were looking for a break from a long drive and thought a cave tour would be interesting. I've been to a few other caves and this one was the least interesting. The setting is nice and I enjoyed the drive in the central Pennsylvania countryside. The cave entrance/welcome center is quaint and one gets the feeling that things haven't... More

Starts with an outdated movie than progresses to a rather mundane tour through the caves......can't touch anything or go off the path! Not worth $13.50 for an adult..... Matter of fact we had a 2 for one coupon on our phone app that we forgot about and when we went back to the register immediately after our tour they wouldn't... More

I have seen many caverns and this is an average trip into the caverns. The tour is informative, full of history but the cave tour is short. The scenary around the cavern is pretty and there is much to do in the area so this is a little extra if you are new to the area. Panning for gems is... More

This is a short cave tour that is actually quite informative for the cave system you tour. There is a small 10-13 minute film describing the history of Crystal Cave before you enter the cave itself. Good tread recommended on shoes due to damp, wet, slippery conditions of cave that your guide warns you about in advance. All in all... More
