A coworker and myself went after a long night shift together to do something spontaneous. So very fun though! Our tour guide was great. You don't need much to prepare for spelunking other than shoes that go above the ankle and at least 2 flashlights. It was pretty challenging (although I am not very tall and therefore do not have...

Although their website was a little misleading, once we got there, it was a blast! Make sure to bring long shirts and pants. You can buy boots there (decent quality hiking boots for $25) or bring your own. You cannot buy coveralls there, even though the website makes it seem like you can. Although we got there a little bit... More

I drove from southern Ohio to go rappelling and spelunking in the lower part of the caverns. It was far more than expected. I ended up rappelling with a great group of several military personnel who afterward invited me to join them spelunking after a few of their party cancelled. The rappelling was great, and the spelunking was a great... More

I will start by saying I have a daughter who is a geology major...and she was with us. We had such a great time here! We did the cave tour, which was awesome! It was not always an easy walk...up hills and back down. Our tour guide was absolutely great. She spoke to the geology (which my daughter loved) and... More

We took the one hour tour and it was very enjoyable. The guide was knowledgeable and nice. Be warned there is some steep terrain on this tour and I was feeling it in my calves the next day. (I did a 10K this year, so I'm not in terrible shape.) There's a modern visitor center with restrooms and beautiful views... More

This is a unique experience, but if you are used to caves with stalagmites it is different. Considering you get to experience being in a mountain with rocks that a couple million years old - it is awesome and definitely worth the $12 admission price. The inclines may be hard for some people to maneuver. My favorite parts were the... More

The caverns are definitely cool. We took a tour that only went down 93 feet, but it sure felt like we went further. You have to be very careful here, there are no railings to hold onto anywhere, its all dirt paths and rock wall to hold onto. We went here a year after going to Luray Caverns in VA,... More

My sister and I went on the 50 minute tour. We had a younger girl as our tour guide and she was adorable. The caverns were amazing, it is a must see if your are in the area.

I did the family cave tour & felt I got my monies worth. Beautiful caves, lots of history & our tourguide had a funny, dry humor I really enjoyed. If your staying around the area, this is a must visit!
