I was a little scared at first because I do not like small places but was not as cramped as I thought it would be. We all had a GREAT TIME and we would do this again. Going through the mine was the best, the zip-line was OK and the movie was something my grandson cannot stop talking about.

We visited a few years ago with friends and had a blast. After reading some of the recent reviews we decided to go back and check out the 7-D theater - it was AWESOME. We had kids ranging in age from 5 to 16, and everyone, including us, had an absolute blast. I would recommend it to anyone.

Our family loved this place! It was a great variety of things to do. We also appreciated the kind people who work there. They obviously love working there and go out of their way to make you feel welcomed. We were so thrilled when we learned that they would kennel our dog for us right on site - free of... More

We had a great tour in the caves. The tour lasted around an hour. I would say this isn't something to do if claustrophobic as it is pretty narrow and closed in, in some areas of the cave. I would say this is a must do though. My kids really enjoyed it. I would say the only negative was the... More

It was a neat set up to do the cave walk, 7D Movie, and zip line. It has alot of neat things to do for cheap prices but no restaurant or snack bar on site. If they had that families could take more time at the site. Challenge to walk stairs at the cave and it is up a steep... More

Also went to Universal Studios, but the 7D at Rushmore Cave is actually more fun as you interact yourself. You have to try it :-)

We thought the zip line this place was awesome until we saw the zip line at tramway adventures (at the base of Mt Rushmore). The zip line at Rushmore cave only lasts about 30 seconds. It is nice as a first experience and is good for a wider variety of people because it isn't a harness. The cave tour was... More

Took our 3 grand daughers up today for the zipline and the 7D ride. The zipline was ok, but the &D was the ultimate in fun. They wanted to go to each one. We went to Los Banditos. It was the highlight of their day. Can't wait to go back. I could not make the steps up but a car... More
