Our visit to Forbidden Caverns was enjoyable. There were a lot of different formations to see in the cavern. There is also a historical aspect to the caverns as it was used by native Americans and moon-shiners. The river running through the cavern reminds of you have how the cavern was formed. Our guide was informative and allowed us time... More

The caverns are beautiful. Not too difficult or strenuous. The cost is $14.00 per adult (sorry, no kids in the group, so I didn't pay attention to the kids price). I wouldn't advise bringing little kids (under age 6) because they turn the lights out a few times. People brought toddlers today and when it got dark, they were terrified.... More

This is the second caverns tour of this trip and by far the best. This cave is a live cave. It is for the most part very open and an easy trek. There are a couple places if you are over 5'9" you will have to watch your head but only a couple. The tour is about 55 minutes and... More

This was approximately an hour tour and very informative. The guide was very nice and we have no complaints. Worth visiting and not overpriced. Coupons are available.

Took my wife and 3 children to this place and for the most part I was pleased. The tour consists of a 55 minute walk in the cave stopping multiple times to listen to the tour guide. It was interesting to see my kids react to total (pitch) dark. Something you never see anymore with so many Wal-Marts around the... More

My husband took the the kids, ages 8,10 and 12 through this while I enjoyed a beautiful spring day sitting at the picnic tables reading. They do offer offer free coffee as well while waiting. Price isn't bad. Also the gift shop has the same cheesy stuff as in pigeon forge but cheaper. Good for kids with a couple bucks... More

Visited the Forbidden Caverns on a whim and was pleasantly surprised. The caves have some great scenery, the tour guides are informative and the tour itself moves along at a great pace and takes about 50 minutes. The price is fair for what you get. Our toddler even enjoyed it. Just be aware that tours don't start until a half... More

It was pouring rain the day we went so we were looking for an inside activity to stay dry. When we arrived I had to wait patiently in line for tickets while a lady at the front desk selling tickets talked to a customer about close to nothing for awhile. Then we had to wait awhile for the tour to... More

Pouring rain, my husband pulled up to the entrance to let me and my children out of the car before parking across the street. An employee with a serious attitude walked out told us that we had to move immediately, parking was across the street! So much for southern hospitality and being family friendly. Did not waist our time or... More
