My SO really loves caves so while visiting the area we went to this attraction. It was busy because of the holiday weekend but not so crowded you could not enjoy your time there. We only did the basic on your own walking tour but there are a few other tour types that can be booked in advance. On the... More

The Caverns is a very nice place and it is very neat things to see. There is a lot of walking and climbing stairs and inclines. Great exercise along the trail and everything is a great thing for families to see. It is hard to believe some of these things are so natural and nature can make it. The caverns... More

First off, the grounds are impressive from the moment you enter the gates. There are several outbuildings selling souveniers, to browse thru as you wait for a tour guide. Entering the caverns you go under the natural bridge and the sights from there are awesome. The caverns are sufficiently lighted and the cement pathways and heavy duty handrails make the... More

It was a great experience, the tour guide was very knowledgeable and friendly. The price was much don't see why it has to be so expensive the caves don't look like they need to be maintained and they should offer at least military discount Buy it was a cool thing to check out.

It was a very neat tour of the caves, but they are not kidding about it being steep and wet. Most of it is inclined, not actual stairs. It is 180 feet down and back up and very humid. However, I am completely out of shape and I made it, so it's worth doing. The best part though is the... More

My boyfriend and I came here, not expecting the beautiful and spacious caverns that we saw. I have only ever been to Howe's Caverns in my native NY and was expecting about the same experience but this was very different. The caves were amazing. To those looking to go, I recommend wearing lightweight clothing and sneakers. It is 99% humidity... More

We visited again with our grown daughters after having taken them for the first time 20 years ago. We enjoyed it thoroughly once again. Highly recommend for families. It is a natural wonder that children today rarely see.

Our family of five adults enjoyed our visit. We chose to go on an August Saturday hoping the crowds would be more reasonable than other local attractions like Schlitterbaun. There was a moderate crowd when we arrived before 11AM. We had several who wanted to do the zip lines, so we went right there because there was no wait. It... More

It was fantastic. Deep below the earths surface. protected and preserved. The tour guides were very knowledgeable. Have never seen anything like this before and a MUST for adventure seekers. Be ready to climb many steps coz this has quite a lot.

We went to the caverns with our children 20 years ago. This time we brought our grandson. He was awed by the beauty of the caverns. You can only try to explain or take pictures which never quite show the stunning landscape under the ground. He wants to go again. We also did the maze, zip lines, and climbing and... More
