We have visited "live" caves before. Live caves have growing stalactites and stalagmites. This cave tour was interesting even though it does not have any growths. There is also the gravity house. My kids enjoyed this most. Nice day trip from San Antonio.

There's a lot to do here - two to three hours at least. Cave tour, observation tower, anti-gravity house, small zoo. Picnic area if you are inclined. The cave is a dry cave, which means the kids can touch the walls without damaging anything. The tour does involve a lot of stairs and low ceilings so a bit of personal... More

If you're driving near here with kids I'd recommend stopping by. Won't take all day and it's a fair price. Definitely worth a stop.

My sister and I have sweet memories of when we went as children with our parents. Liked it all. Tour guide was good. We went early on Sunday morning to beat the crowds. Fun!

I was taken here on a first date and it was very sweet and fun. The caves were extremely interesting and our tour guide was surprisingly humorous. I would definitely recommend coming here for a fun, different adventure.

We took our five kids, ages 7-15, there and they had a great time. Even the 15 year old didn't complain. Like other reviewers have said, you get four attractions for one ticket; the cave tour, the observation tower, the antigravity house, and the wildlife refuge. The cave is pretty cool and, yea the stairs get steep and there are... More

I have been to Wonder World a few times. The cave tour is always fun. Kids seem to really like it. Granted this is not Disneyland, but a nice commercial free destination. The cave tour is my favorite part. The tour to the top of the tower is funner for kids and likely scary for those afraid of heights. I... More

This place looks like it hasn't been remodeled since the 60's. I thought it was overpriced for the cave. There was mold in the cave and that made my child's allergies go crazy. The steps were really steep and ceiling very low in places. I was shocked to see people bringing babies and toddlers on the tour. They had to... More
