At first glance, you might be a little apprehensive but give it a shot! I would say kids from 4-10 would enjoy this best. We signed up for the full tour in the gift shop. If... read more

At first glance, you might be a little apprehensive but give it a shot! I would say kids from 4-10 would enjoy this best. We signed up for the full tour in the gift shop. If you go onto their website you can currently get a coupon for $3 off tickets. The train ride was short but cute. Before you... More

The cave is somewhat small and the train safari is no bigger than our back yard but if you have pre-teen or younger children, I would definitely recommend it. For the half the price of the natural bridge caverns & natural bridge wildlife ranch, at Wonderworld you get the safari by train, the cave, a ride to the top of... More

They used dynamite to make the cave the size it is. The gift shop is nice. The tower is very poorly kept. I was very scared of going in the elevator. We opted out of the train ride. It cost way too much for only seeing a man-made cave.

This place was a wonderful find. It's off the beaten path but worth it. The train took us through the animal park where we fed deer then went through a cave where we were allowed to touch the walls our guide Sean was excellent and answered every question we had from there we went to the look out tower and...

It was so much fun. I went on a date and the cave tour is absolutely amazing. Definitely ask questions while you are on the cave tour because the tour guides are very knowledgable. I felt a little claustrophobic at the beginning of the tour but once we started moving it opened up and I'm so glad I went. N.S.

We arrived at the park early to be some of the first ones through the safari with our kids. We did some walking around while waiting for the gates to that part to open and saw some of the animals there, that was pretty neat. The safari, however, was very lackluster. The best part of going through a safari is... More

We paid $32.50 for a 10 minute ride with one stop and none of the kids able to feed the animals. The driver didn't even give the animals a chance to come up to the train. It was certainly not worth the price of admission. I wish I would have known how awful it was before I paid all that... More

Only did the cave tour. The rest of the attractions screamed tourist trap. The cave is interesting, but kind of dull. It is a dry cave, and they do point out the fault line, but when compared with the Natural Bridge Caverns tour and sights...it does not hold up. Especially for the price. If you are bored in San Marcos... More

Of the two caverns in the area, this is the best. Funner and less restrictive than the competition. The staff is absolutely wonderful and FUN!
