Everyone loved the cave. Everyone loved the zip line. Everyone loved the 7D experience. Three attractions at one location. It is about a 1/2 mile walk through the cave with low ceilings and a number or stairs. Also, you have a ladder to climb. Be careful if you are tall. At 6' 4" it may be the last cave I... More

We had a great experience there. When we first got there, electricity was out but was back on about 10 minutes after we got there. Besides going in the cave, my granddaughter and I rode the Zipline and did the 7D gunslinger theatre. Prior to going to Rushmore cave, I searched Trip Advisor and found Rushmore Cave had more excellent... More

Family fun time. Seven family members including 12 and 14 year old enjoyed the cave, shooting tour and quick but powerful zip line. We all participated and made some neat memories of a delightful vacation.

Nice cave tour given by Crystal. There was plenty of time for photos and the stairs are not to strenuous. We have been to lots of caves all over the USA. This one has many different types of formations. The rare helictites can be seen here.

We did the cave tour + the 7D "ride". I would recommend folks stick to the base cave ticket, the other attractions seem to be a way to get more of your money (though my kids really did enjoy the 7d ride). The cave is cool. Nice cave formations. Tour is a little over an hour. They have some adventure... More

If you've never seen a cave before then this is for you. I've been to other caves that were much more impressive. The price was a little steep, we also did the 7D gunslinger interactive movie and it was $21 per person for both. If you can't handle climbing stairs, I wouldn't recommend doing the cave tour, best part of... More

I haven't been to this cave since I was a kid. I thought the new owners did a great job with the upgrades. We all loved the cave tour, kids loved the zip-line and 7d movie. I loved the landscaping and wild flowers.

Overall appearance was great- clean and pretty. Cave guide was dry and to the point- didnt really want to answer questions. Many areas of the cave were dead due to previous self guided tours. Gift shop staff very friendly and informative- kids loved the dog.

We did the cave, the zip-line, and the 7D ride. We loved them all. Cave tour was great. Not too difficult getting around. Zip-line was a quick down and up trip, but pretty exciting seeing as none of us have been on those before. Finished the trip off with the 7D shooting ride. Have younger kids, so we did the... More

I think caves can be a little intimidating, but there's enough open spaces in this cave to keep it comfortable. The price wasn't bad. Sure, it'd be nice if everything was free, but we had a great guide that was very knowledgeable and friendly. So I think we spent $50 for three people and we got a great cave tour... More
