This is a very good place to visit for an hour or so especially with kids. Its smaller than some place like Mammoth Cave in Kentucky, but excellent. The price is much better and there are coupons available in the vacation booklets or on line. My wife and I took our two grandsons to visit. The tour guide was very... More

We were in the back of the group and stopped to take pictures and the lights went out, constantly. We couldn't hear our tour leader and she seemed to want to rush us through. I would have preferred waiting for the start of another tour, had I known what to expect. I would definitely seek another set of caverns in... More

If you in this neck of the woods & never check out caverns, this is a great one. I've been going for 5 decades & certainly will go again.

The caverns were very interesting. Tour was very informative but we felt very rushed. Not a place for very small children who have trouble walking or those with knee problems, etc. There is a lot of uneven ground and steep stairs but these add to the charm and character of the caverns. It really was a nice tour!

We have been to quite a few caves around the world and I think the Forbidden Caverns are really beautiful. We went down into the caves with about 20 other people and a guide. There were several guides and they would take groups as soon as they had enough people for a group. Our guide was a cute little southern... More

Caves were just enough for small children. Were a little scared at first but then everyone enjoyed. There were lights in caves to light up the points of interest. It took about an hour and there were minimal steps to climb.

I was very worried that I would get claustrophobic in the cave but it was well light and overall not many small spaces. It was a very cool experience that my family and I enjoyed. Yes the light show was tacky but I believe my kids aged 5 and 7 enjoyed the experience. I am thankful that we were allowed... More

I love going to caverns not so much my family. I was happy it was raining so I could drag them with me. Turned out even my teenagers enjoyed the experience. Make sure to pick up a multiple coupons (only allow 1 coupon for 2 people), they are in most of the coupon books you find everywhere. Seemed silly to... More

My (now fiance) took me here in our first date and it was amazing. It is so beautiful!!! I recommend it as a first date place to everyone who is a naturalist, and constant learner like me. And yes, it was romantic :)
