This is a must see!! Very large and beautiful caverns! The old carriage and car museum was very neat to see! Must check out the Garden maze as well!

We went back to Luray for our 3rd anniversary since we got married in the cavern . It is just such an amazing place ! The beauty of it is that it is all natural , nothing man made like so much of the world today. Mother nature at her finest . It does get busy during the peak vacation... More

Don't go to Luray Caverns if you hate feeling like you are being herded with hundreds of people in a long line under ground. We visited Luray Caverns because we had such fond childhood memories of small groups of about 20-30 people listening to a guide tell about points of interest. Now they send down massive groups that walk in... More

Loved the caverns and science that goes with their formation. A little mystical too. I have been there twice , and in the peak season , it is very crowded . But the whole tour inside is very nice. U have climb up and down the steps while going in . Apart from the caverns there was a little antique... More

Go early as the line gets very long very fast. We went at about 10am and had purchased our tickets ahead of time. We waited about 20 minutes to get in but when we came out the line was probably up to an hour or longer wait time. We also did the maze and had lunch at the café. We... More

Having lived in Virginia our whole lives, my wife and I have both experience Luray Cavern several times over the years. Now it's time to take the granddaughters ages 6 and 12. The caverns are amazing and hopefully should never change. The owners seem to be excellent stewards of the wonderful gift they have been blessed with. In our lifetime... More

My husband, my two teen sons and I really enjoyed our visit to the Luray Caverns. We arrived early and were on the first tour. It wasn't very crowded at that time, but when our tour was over we saw that the place had really filled up, so I recommend getting there early! The caverns were beautifully lit and maintained,...

Everywhere you look you see fantastic natural rock formations inevery shape and size imaginable and some you wouldn't imagine possible. Wish we could have spent more time really examining some of the more intricate formations but our guide needed to keep us moving since there was another group behind us. The car and carriage museum has some unique specimens so... More

I first visited Luray Caverns 10 years ago. At that time I was very much amazed with the formation of the stalactites and stalagmites, and their reflections in the pool of water in the cavern. There was a "wishing egg" that you can touch and a stalactite organ that will play a hymn. Apart from the natural attraction, there is... More

The guided tour explained the stalactites and stalagmites well. It was well lit to see them. The line to get in was long and my grandson (age 6) was a bit afraid of going down in the dark. Long walk and flight of stairs. Do it if you are able bodied! Worth seeing
