The Rushmore Cave was absolutely stunning! We enjoyed the cave tour which was informative. It was a really good work-out but the history and the beauty of it made it all worth it. If you can make it up the stairs to the entrance you should be able to tour the cave. We had plenty of opportunity to take photos,... More

The Rushmore Cave was absolutely stunning! It was definitely a work-out but the history and the beauty of it made it all worth it. There is one caveat I have to mention tho. DO NOT TAKE SMALLER CHILDREN INTO THE CAVE. And if you can avoid a group with toddlers or babies, do so. They get to hollering and crying... More

We went to the 7-D Theatre to shoot Zombies right before Halloween. The attraction costs $9 and lasts about 7 minutes. At first I thought it was a rip off, but after we rode it, I thought it was well worth it!! We actually thought we would have to wait until a scheduled time, but the staff graciously took me... More

We enjoyed the cave tour which was informative. The 7D Interactive ride was brilliant. This is the only one at the moment in the USA. Disney I understand are having one installed. We also enjoyed the Zipline. Thanks for a great time.

We did this cave as an extended family of 27 and enjoyed it. The tour guide offered to skip the "Fantasy Billions of Years" imagination story for us which was really nice. The cave is smaller than some I've been in but it had a some neat formations and crystals. It was a perfect afternoon outing for our family.

It was a fascinating tour. The guide was well-informed. There were a lot of stairs (no surprise) but they give you two chances to opt out. Once about 15 minutes in to the tour and again later before some challenging and slippery stairs. One couple in our group chose to sit out the stairs. Navigating was narrow, railings were wet,...

We visited the Rushmore Cave and had a GREAT time. Not only is the experience educational (awesome guides) but you also get a little work out in for the day. I have to say that my favorite thing to do is the 7D "Los Banditos." I did it three times and had a blast every time. I highly recommend the... More

The cave is very interesting and kept in a good natural state. I appreciated having a tour guide who knew so much about the formations and did such a great job explaining. The time allowed for exploring was just about right - not rushed but not too slow either. The 7d games had me laughing out loud! I would definitely... More
