While the visitor center is a bit run down (testament to the high traffic!), the caverns never disappoint. The subterraneous light show and panoramic view from the visitor center are bonuses. Well worth the trip if you're in the area. And always ask for a AAA discount!

I've been wanting to do a cave tour for some time now just too see what the caves are really like so we decided to head to this cave and do the tour since it was the closest and only 2.5 hours away. The cave was amazing and was very interesting. The tour was pretty cool too, our guide was... More

We took the 1 hour tour and descended into the cave with our guide, Roland. Roland was knowledgeable and personable and able to answer all our many questions. The caverns are very interesting and not too hard to traverse. If you're really adventurous, you should book the 3 hour in-depth tour or take advantage of the wall climbing they offer.

This is Pennsylvania's largest cave. It is a very nice and scientifically correct tour. There is no better chance to be in a cave than this.

We have been to the caves twice and our children enjoyed both visits. It is a beautiful place and the staff are always kind and informative. We will defiantly go back!

I took my family here last week and it was great. The kids ages 7-15 all enjoyed it and can't wait to do it again on our next trip. It's not your typical stalactite and stalagmite cavern. It has beautiful smooth walls, and you can see where the water levels used to be. it's just a good place to visit.

Visited last weekend and loved this cavern! Different from many because it has no stalactites but several maze like areas that are a lot of fun. Also has one spot that is totally dark except for voice activated lights. Definitely worth a visit! Has a surprising spot where gravity seems to have gone berserk, great optical illusion.

We did the lower caving tour which was surprisingly very affordable, way cheaper than most trips I have seen. We had a wonderful time. Our tour guide was casual and informative. I do not recommend this trip for those who are claustrophobic, unless you are willing to embrace and conquer your fear, or for those who do not live an... More

Fun cave to visit, our trip enhanced by our guide which is always a role of the dice. We took the family tour which had some fun surprises and was at least a couple hours long.
