The Skyline Caverns are very near the city of Front Royal. The tour was easy to take and the tour guide was knowledgeable and entertaining. Though smaller than other caverns I've visited, like the Natural Bridge Caverns, it was unique and worth the time and effort to see.

This attraction is heavily promoted; it seems everywhere you go when you visit Virginia you see their brochures (definitely get one with a $2 off coupon; this isn't a cheap attraction). It's not hard to find; however, we did get a little lost, so we stopped at the Front Royal visitors' center--they have tons of materials for all parts of... More

I had been to Skyline Caverns back in the early 80's with my kids when they were younger than the teens. My wife and I took my daughter, who is now in her early 40's here on the Memorial Day holiday weekend. Although it was a bit pricier than I remembered, the tour was very enjoyable. Our tour guide, Jeff,... More

My family of four (myself, husband, daughters 9 years and 11 years old) just left Skyline Caverns and really enjoyed it. We were staying in Front Royal Virginia really to go to Luray Caverns and see Skyline Drive yesterday and decided this morning to check out Skyline Caverns before we left the area. We are so glad we did. The... More

Virginia is full of show caves, most famously Luray. But there are many more. And this is one of them. I have been to many of them and no two are alike. This one has some spectacular formations in it that show that Virginia's caves are not interchangeable. It is worth visiting each and every one of them, including Skyline.

Decided to surprise the family for Mother's Day and really hit it out of the park with this trip. The cavern tour is really enjoyable, while it's not the biggest, etc....it is just the right length at an hour. We also did the train ride and mirror maze. Both of my kids (11 & 4) had a blast in the... More

Having been to many caves I was in the area and decided to check it out. Its not as well known as its bigger brother Lauray Caverns down the street but it was well worth the price of admission. Great tour guide Jeff who knows the history and cares about the place. Beautiful lighting and formations, the tour is about... More

If you are jaded by caverns filled from end to end with features then this is the place. A simple and less slick operation than the bigger caves, much of it is just a big pothole worn by an ancient river, with a few 'tites and 'mites here and there; but interesting nevertheless as is any cave. The glory of... More

My son and I, along with the rest of the Scout Pack visited Skyline Caverns on a very chilly Saturday morning. Not really knowing what to expect, we arrived and waited for the rest of the Pack to show up. While we waited we walked around a very expansive gift shop filled with gems stones, touristy t-shirts, kitschy souvenirs, and... More

Kids and I made an impromptu stop here on the way back from Luray Caverns on a quiet April Monday. We wanted to compare the two and were driving by anyway. The site looked very 1950s which was part of the draw in us stopping along with a desire for some ice cream. The gift shop area did not disappoint!... More
