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.

We brought our cub scout troop here for the day on Saturday. It was a terribly foggy day, so we missed the turn and were a bit late. Everyone there was very friendly and helpful, despite the craziness. We had our boys for about 45 minutes in a classroom while our guide talked about the different materials found in the... More

These caverns have a lot of history attached. First used by the Native Americans who lived in the area and later by outlaws who hid their booty there. There are parts of the miles of caverns that are yet to be explored. There is a walking tour of about an hour. For the more adventurous there is rappelling available. For... More

This family owned attraction is a refreshing, unique natural cave nestled in the beautiful mountains of the Laurel Highlands in western Pennsylvania. Laurel Caverns are catacomb caverns, so if you are looking for large stalactite and stalagmite formations this is not the cavern for you. However, they are an excellent example of catacomb caverns. The owners take great pride in... More
