This was a fun family outing and the people working there were very friendly. We have 7 yr old, 8 yr old, and 18 yr old and we all enjoyed it. It was very low key and beautiful. It is a bit dark, damp, and cold but it IS a cave under a mountain. I thought it was a bit... More

My boyfriend and I love caverns, so we decided that we had to take a stop here, especially seeing how good the reviews were. We were definitely not disappointed. True to caverns, this was in the middle of nowhereland, off a small road. There is plenty of parking, the bathrooms are in the parking lot, which can be a little... More

Enjoyed this tour, very easy to walk - some inclines and low areas, but rails and gravel to keep those areas stable for me- ( I have some walking difficulties and had no problems walking this tour). Tour lasts approx. 1hour and admission is about $15.00 per adult, not sure child fees but maybe about half -. Used coupons for... More

Our family 5 adults and 5 kids ages 4-12 enjoyed our trip to the Forbidden Caverns. The tour guide cave us the history of the cavern as we walked through enjoying the beautiful scenery. The 55 minute tour was the perfect amount of time. We were able to see many different aspects of the caverns. The cavern is fairly easy... More

Everyone in the family loved it from adults to kids (6yo, 10yo, 12yo). Bring jackets as it's definitely cool inside. Very informative and unique.

Fun, hour long tour of a neat cave. There are brief moments of complete darkness (as a demonstration) but otherwise family friendly. It's a place I would bring out-of-town friends and family on a HOT day because the cave is a constant 58 degrees. The ground has puddles, so wear sneakers!

Frist let me start with if it had not been for Bistro 109 and D Garden Staff in downtown Sevierville we would have never found this place they were very helpful! We were looking for something off the beaten path that was not packed with 1000 people when we spoke with the people at both places I mentioned above. This... More

This is something good to do to cool off in the summer. We didn't have to wait long for a tour to start. The tour lasted about an hour. It was interesting and our guide was friendly and made it fun.

My fiance and I are locals and both had never been to Forbidden Caverns before. We decided to check it out and had a great experience. It was a really unique and affordable attraction. The guides were very knowledgeable and friendly. We plan to go back and take our children!

It's a cool cavern at 58 degrees inside. Interesting history. Bring a jacket and comfortable shoes. Muddy inside. Don't bring small kids if they get scared easy. The darkness scared my toddler.
