I will start off by saying I have never been in a cave, and didn't know what to expect. I took my 5 year old son and 13 year old nephew for a fun day. It was really very interesting and slightly unsettling..during the tour they turn off the lights..complete darkness..like I had never experienced before. Before entering the cave... More

The cave tour was very interesting and the guides were great. The main road to the place is closed for work and the detour is a real detour, even with GPS it took a while. Be aware. The men's rest room was disgusting. If you have to sit, try and hold it or carry Lysol. Ladie's room was ok but... More

We've been on many cave tours all over the USA. Mamoth, Howe caverns, Caves in Virginia, Wind Cave, Caves in State of Washington...I cant even think of all their names. Therefore, thats why I give this a lesser rating for someone who is not used to touring caves or only wants a small introductory tour. I wouldnt go back unless... More

The caves are not very large but are still a fun visit, cool formations etc . the tour guides seem to be going through the motions of the speech. The video at the beginning is a little unessescary but I guess informative for first time visitors. The miniature golf course is a blast, it's so hard. We ate the the... More

Not a very large cave for $13.50. They had some fun family stuff to do there which is nice (ice cream, mini golf, trails, and a shop). The video before the tour was educational and discussed the history of the cave which I enjoyed. It was still a fun stop and my daughter liked it.

Crystal Cave was a big let down for me. For one, it is extremely overpriced at $13.50 a person for a very short tour of a very unimpressive cave. Far better cave attractions around than this! At least in Penns Cave, you get a 40 min boat ride through the cave and it costs less! And when you purchase your... More

We saw the signs and decided it would be a good place to take a break on our ride to Lancaster. About 10-15 min off exit. We are a family of 4 with 2 boys (9&6). Admission was a bit steep, $46 for the family. Tour was about 40 minutes but very informative and we all loved it. Kids got... More

We had a very knowledgeable tour guide who spoke at length about the various cave formations as well as the cave's history. The cave itself is rather large. The walkways are well maintained and well lit. It was heartbreaking to see the various stalagmites and stalactites that had been broken by explorers from the past before conservation efforts could be... More

What a wonder place to visit! The tour guide was very knowledgable and friendly. He really gave us a clear picture of the caves beginnings and how much tourist have enjoyed climbing through and exploring its wonders over the years. Worth going for the whole family or even for a couple.

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
