Myself, wife, 7 year old daughter, and 5 year old son went on the 1 hour family tour. It was on a lighted pathway, except for on path that you had to make noise to keep the lights on and the light and sound show. The noise pathway was really fun for my kids. The light and sound show was... More

This was a good tour to take on a hot summer day! Our tour guide Lisa was extremely knowledgable and kept the tour moving at a good pace. The 1 hour tour covered a lot of "ground" and was just enough exercise and education rolled into one visit. Our 6.5 yr old son particularly enjoyed the panning for gemstones activity... More

We took the one hour tour. Travelers may also take a half day guided tour with head lamps and descend 44 floors into the caverns. Our guide was knowledgeable and had a good sense of humor. The tour highlight was a music and lights show in the caverns.

I enjoyed this trip much more than I thought I would. We took the kids for an adventure. Turned out my husband and I had a lot of fun too. We learned a lot about how the caverns formed and saw a lot of impressive sights. Our tour guide Rick was very knowledgable and interesting. A worthwhile experience for the... More

This is a very nice cavern and the tour is well done. It is not as large as some of the others we have toured, but well worth a visit if you are in the area.

There should be some type of warning that you are about to descend an incredibly steep decline, then 200 steps. Then once you're in the cave you have to descend again and ascend the steepest inclines WITHOUT HAND RAILS and you're not supposed to touch the limestone, SO WHAT R U SUPPOSED to hold onto for strength, steadiness, support? That... More

Went spelunking for my birthday and it was such an awesome experience that I recommend everyone try. Our tour guide " shaggy" was very kind, extremely knowledgeable and encouraging. I would definitely do it again and try repelling next time.

My son & daughter-in-law & I recently rappelled down into the caves @ Laurel Caverns & it was so exciting & fun. The first time for all of us...the first step off the ledge is the scariest step but then it is awesome. The guides were wonderful; they made us feel very safe. My husband stayed at the bottom with... More

As a rainy day outing while staying at Nemacolin Woodlands Resort, my 15 year old daughter and I visited Laurel Caverns. We took the 1.5 hour family tour, which was an easy path lit by chandeliers. This suited us just fine, but there were several other longer options for more adventurous people who want to crawl through tight spaces in... More

Not a bad place to stop and check out. Interesting, but our group had several tired small children who exceed nap time, so it made it harder to hear our guide.
