The cave is not your typical cave and is pretty boring if you have seen others. It does have some unique features with such as flint in bedrock but nithing like other caves in the area. I would make the 45 minute drive to Natural Bridge cave.

Yes, They still run the glass bottom boats, but now that TSU has bout the old park, it is being converted into a nature area for school trips. This will be great for the schools and the students to learn about nature and the springs feeding the area.

Arrived with minimal expectations to amuse my 6yr old grandson, but was pleasantly surprised with our Guide Nikko, as he was not only informative, but made our tour fun. Pretty good when someone can capture the attention of a 6yr old for an hour and a half! The cave was neat, as well as the other parts of this attraction.... More

We ventured to Wonder World because we were bored for the day. I felt like a little kid again excited to see things I hadn't before. The gift shop was perfect for kids, there were all the things I remember looking for as a kid that I had to have! Our tour guide for the caves was awesome, informative, and... More

There's 4 parts to the tour. The cave is definitely the most interesting but it's not very big. It is a dry cave so there are no cave formations to look at, leaving the tour a little boring. The anti gravity house is a fun little addition but is clearly built just to extend your tour. The train through the... 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...
