Good time but a little spendy for what you do. All ages enjoyed the 7D game. The cave tour was good.

Our tour guide had a great personality and added alot of interest to the tour. The tour itself was about the perfect length and was mostly easy with a few small climbs. Some pretty cool formations to look at and you could get really close and not just have to see from a distance. Cameras were allowed and the pace... More

They take tours every 15 minutes so you aren't having to buy tickets and wait forever as we heard at some caves you have to do. The tour guide was very informative and had some good stories. My family took up the rear as we have a 4 year old so we took some good pictures and didn't worry about... More

The cave tour was excellent and very interesting. After touring the cave we went to the 7D theater and shot zombies. A great time was had by all.

We only did the cave tour. The tour guide was friendly and very knowledgeable. The story of how the cave was discovered was interesting. There were some tight spaces and a few steep sets of stairs. It is advertised as a cave and not caverns, so don't expect a lot of cavern type formations. There is one room with them,... More

If you are mobile enough to go on a one hour cave tour, do this! The price is reasonable (more so than the fun but spendy zipline ride that adjoins the Cave entrance and gift shop), and it's one of those things you just have to see if you are in the Black Hills. The cave is clean and impressive,... More

We took my 88 year old mother in law to this attraction so that she could go zip lining for the first time. They even allowed her to go for free a second time. She loved it.

Our tour guide was very knowledgable and did a great job. The caves are impressive. Wear good walking shoes. Our son also enjoyed the zip line.

2nd visit and slightly more commercial than 15 years ago but still a nice experience. Stalactites not overly impressive but formations interesting. Have to get through some tight areas but nothing too difficult. Kids loved the 7D video game but we didn't try the zip line as it didn't look overly exciting.
