The caverns are absolutely stunning and a joy to visit. Be prepared to walk and stand a bit and wear tennis shoes for sure. Make sure you ask about the discovery of the caverns and their not so distant history. It is a good story. Kids especially will love it! There are picnic areas and several other activities to do...

We really enjoyed our visit to the caverns. This was my first time ever visiting a cavern/cave and I didn't really know what to expect, but I was pleasantly surprised. People had told us it would be cold down there, but it was pretty HOT! We did the ropes course and our tour guide was very knowledgable and friendly. Our... More

We went on both the Discover and Hidden passages cave tour. They were lead by very knowledgeable tour guides with lots of energy. The caves were well presented and breath taking to see. The signage indicates that the caves are 70 degrees with 99% humidity. If you think it is going to be cold, it will not be. The first... More

Natural bridge caverns starts with an introduction just outside the visitor center. For $20, you get some history, a tour and a slow hot walk. The tour starts with a walk down to the caves entrance and a view of the natural bridge. The cave is impressive but the tour moves slow, with tourist trap group photos in the middle.... More

This was a lot of fun. The formations are just too much to believe and not to be missed. Be aware of the misconception of needing a sweatshirt or hoodie because it's cold underground...it;s not! Very warm and humid and combined with the walking of somewhat steep stairs and paths drinking a bit of water before you start is a... More

The staff service overall was poor. It was a very creepy place and their were too many associates on staff standing talking to each other. No one could pass the doors without getting their bracelets scanned yet all of these people who appeared like they DIDN'T pay were coming out of every corridor. When they were asked a question they... More

My husband and I joined the Discovery Tour and it was just a pretty remarkable sight! How wonderful the nature was! The tour guide was nice. We were both impressed by the huge cave rooms and all the different formations, stalagmites, stalactites, flowstones, chandeliers and soda straws. It was very hot and humid inside the cave. The walkway was pretty... More

I enjoyed visiting the caverns. It has some very nice formations and a well marked trail through the cave. One of the coolest things to me was to see the water lines where the aquifer levels are shown plainly on the walls. You can see where it's been high and graphically understand how the aquifers work.
