Amazing what you see in here! Perfect for a hot day, the cave is nice and cool. Tour is very informative, walkway is easy. There are stairs to traverse. The Great Room is something to experience.

This is a wet cave and other then a couple close spots it is pretty easy to navigate. Very pretty, not as much to look at that I have seen in other caves but still worth the price.

If you are looking for something to do away from all the people and traffic of Gatlinburg or Pigeon Forge, this is a great side trip. It is located about 20 miles from Pigeon Forge, but it is an enjoyable ride. It may be obvious but this attraction is not handicap accessible. You will also need to be able to... More

An excellent cave with a river running through the entire length. Waterfall, and plenty of cave formations. The kids (under 10) loved it. As a bonus we saw a Pygmy bat hibernating in his little nook. Definitely recommend this cave. Keep in mind that this is NOT a dry cave, especially after heavy rains. To us it added to the... More

If you are in the area you HAVE to dedicate a couple of hours to explore this ancient natural gem. This is a Cavern (Cave) that is millions/billions of years old. It is unreal of how exploring this wonder of our world makes you feel unsure of how you think the earth works. The idea of how water flows millions... More

The cavern it self is beautiful, however you do have to walk about 400 step stairs and there is a hand rail however the lower part of the rail is open to the ledges- very easy for a child to slip through. The cavern is very moist and slippery since it has an active spring inside. I traveled with adults... More

My young son got sick in the giftshop he had felt a little bad that afternoon, but when we went in there it was so hot it was absolutely stifling and he suddenly felt worse. The poor little guy couldn't help it and got sick and vomited and the staff was no help at all. They looked at us like... More

My first cave, and it was really exciting! A lot to see and I had a blast, it's only 17$ and I think that it was one of the highlights of my trip!
