The main thing is to go in prepared by bringing a sweater/jacket and closed toe shoes such as sneakers or anything with a grippable surface. The cavern itself is interesting and extensive. We chose the one hour tour (the only one available at that time). The only issue is that you move too fast to cover the 'allotted ground' in... More

Great for all ages to see...They do a great job! It's been awhile since I've been there...I'm 61 and I went when I was in my teens and 20's...I remember the lighting inside was really great and the guide was awesome and interesting!

Just moved to PA and looked for something for our family to do on a Sunday afternoon. This was the place!!! Not really sure what we expected, but we were amazed. Our tour guide Ryan was funny and knowledgable. We walked down about 126 feet in a well lit cavern. You walk down, but remember you have to walk back... More

We were heading to Pa for Gettysburg and Amish Co. But stopped here for the tour. The cavern is very cool so nice in warm weather and great rock formations but not so good for the stalagmites and stalactites. the price is 12 for adults and 9 for children.

I took my 3, 5 & 7 year old grandchildren here for the afternoon. We all loved it. Very interesting. Tour guide was wonderful and patient with the little ones. It's hard to imagine this huge cavern underground even after going through it. It is very reasonably priced. I especially liked that tours ran about every 20 minutes so there... More

Excellent tour, and a great introduction to caving for even younger family members. More experienced and/or adventurous sorts can go for the deeper cave tours or rapelling. Either way, this is a great stop on anyone's trip.

So my family and I did the upper cave tour and it was awesome! Our tour guide, Bernie was amazing! Although it says to be at least 9 to do the upper cave tour I would reccomend being at least 11 or 12 because there are some very tight spaces to crawl through. Make sure to where proper clothes because... More

Laurel Caverns was worth the drive to get there. It pays to check out Laurel Caverns website for directions and for the address to plug into a GPS. After a very short wait we were on a guided tour. The guide was very knowledgeable and provided interesting information along the way. The walk through the caverns was quite easy on... More

This was one of the many caves we visited and enjoyed the tour very much. Just the way the cave was made is amazing. We saw a group of scouts learning how to spelunking down a cave wall. The beautiful formations were awesome and we hope to came back again.

If you are interested in conservation, this cavern will disappoint. The owners of this establishment have actually altered the caves to make them more manageable for tours. That said, it was fun and an easier walk than it might have been. I have some mild mobility issues and was able to handle the downward slope with the help of a... More
