The journey 34 stories below ground was interesting. A significant change in temperature could be felt immediately upon entry. The walk was not too bad even for kids or those not in the best of shape. The lights get turned off and one point and you can experience complete darkness. We enjoyed the experience but felt it was overpriced for... More

We came here after we toured the Natural Bridge. We've been to many caverns before. This is a small one and the tour wasn't very long. Our tour guide was informative when you could hear him. We had many small and talkative children in our group and parents weren't doing anything about this. Not fair to the people as well... More

This is a great place to visit if you stop by in Lexington. If you buy the combo ticket, you can visit the places in 2 days. The cavern visit is only for one time but the natural bridge and other places on the list is unlimited within 48hrs. as you go down, you'll feel the sharp drop in temperature.... More

This is the best of everything that Natural bridge has to offer. It took 1.5 to walk to see everything, but you could easily spend 2-3 hours exploring the creek.

I wouldn't go to the caverns again but if you enjoy caverns you may like it. I think their are better ways to spend your leisure money, but if you do go, take a jacket. The caverns are about 50 degrees

The caverns were nice, but really cold. I won't hold that against them because we're going down in the earth...so being cold makes sense. The tour guide was very knowledgeable and there were some interesting things to see. My only complaint was the it seemed really really short. I was expecting more.

Didn't really have anything special to set it apart from other caverns. Actually went there to see the natural bridge and added on the cavern tour as I like caves and it was just down the road.

Its very interesting to be 347 feet below ground. I was intrigued when I heard that these were the deepest caverns on the east coast. It was very chilly in the caverns so it was a very nice experience during the heat of the summer. It was very neat and I would definitely recommend it to anyone wanting to experience... More

The caverns were cool, but you find out you're only looking at a portion of them when you get there. Everything was the same brown color, I was expecting something a little different. Our guide was informative and knowledgeable, but was walking so fast we couldnt look while we were walking. We just focused on a few things and also... More
