Really cool activity, off the beaten path

Guided tour moves along quickly, some genuinely cool sights. It's also 58 degrees year round, nice way to view nature without all the heat!

The entire tour took about 50 minutes and was full - lots of other folks were in our group and we passed at least two other tour groups while inside the cave. The cave itself is beautiful - large open areas, other areas where it's a bit tight to get through, beautiful formations, and my personal favorite the underground river.... More

I really liked the tour the first time we went. It is very cool especially if you have never been in a cave. The gift shop could use a better variety. The second time we went was good too, but there was nothing different so it didn't seem worth the drive.

This cave was easy to traverse, Our guide was engaging and knowledgeable. I could have done without the light show and recorded fable the story could have been worked into the guides tour easily. The formations are awe inspiring. Im so glad we saw this.

This was an amazing secret to be discovered. The guide did a nice job combining history of the cave, with light shows and imagination games. He even searched until he found a salamander and frog for my son. My son was engaged the entire time; the pacing was great! The cave itself is amazing because of the water that is... More

The caves were beautiful to see but the mandatory tour- one of the worst. Most of the information given was "cutsy" stuff- describing what the rock formations look like characters, or common place objects- right down to a light show to show different ice cream flavors by the color of the light on the stone wall. Guide was only able... More

We stumbled on this cavern by accident. We had planned another but there was just too many stairs. One of our group has challenges with too many stairs. We looked for one that might be less strenerous. This fit us good. The tour was a little over an hour. Our tour guide was amazing and very well educated as to... More

What a unique experience! Had three grandsons with us and it was fun and educational. They loved it and even saw a bat. Guide was knowledgeable and fun. Would definitely recommend for adults and children alike. Loved the gift shop.
