My wife and I recently visited Crystal Cave in Kutztown Pa. We enjoyed the cave and our guide was very knowledgeable. I was able to take plenty of pictures . One down side is if you have trouble walking uphill there might be a problem. The walk from the ticket office to the cave entrance is a pretty steep uphill... More

I love caves and caverns. We stopped at Crystal Cave on a little roadtrip across PA. The woman in the shop where you buy your tickets was really nice and friendly. The whole place has a really old fashioned charm, and I loved every minute of it. Our guide, Dan, was really good and we had a great time.

visited the cave in April. The staff were very nice and the place was uncrowded. We were the only ones on our tour and we had a great guide who spent about an hour with us underground. The surrounding are is very scenic and pretty. Not a lot to do at the cave as the miniature golf and the nature... More

As a tour guide of another cave like this one, I always enjoy visiting other caves when I'm in the area. When I told them that I was a guide at another cave, they offered me a free admission, which was definitely nice. We waited about 20 minutes for our tour. The tour started out with a video which was... More

This is the only cave I have visited, but I have been there twice--as a child in the 70's and recently with my spouse. It might be a little expensive, but the movie was interesting and informative, and the tour was fun. Our tour guide was young, but well informed. He did a good job of combining facts with humor....

For being so close to home, this was a very nice trip! We thought the inside of the cave was beautiful. Brought our ten year old son and his friend and they loved it. Especially panning for gemstones after the tour was over. Nice souvenir shop too.

It’s definitely a cool location and a nice daytrip, but I think it’s just a little over-hyped for what it is, especially with all of the road signs, tourist volume, etc. They have a nice little operation set up with the gift shop, ice cream, snack bar, etc. The cave itself is pretty cool, but I was underwhelmed by the...

My husband, 15 year old son and I took a ride out to Crystal Cave on Labor Day weekend - we were actually kind of shocked when we got there (it's about 20 miles off Rt 78 so be prepared to drive thru farmlands, etc) and it was PACKED with people! We had to wait an hour for a cave... More
