It was 30 per person to get in and I had 5 people k and this was to look at rocks.there were 2 lines that were ridiculous the wait to buy a ticket and the wait to get in just not worth it. Ended up going to shanadoah caverns not too far and saved 10 per person and no wait..

Loved the caverns especially the mirror lake! Many attractions but we didn't have time to visit all the other attractions - museum, car exhibit.

The visit to the caverns was wonderful. It was very crowded on a Saturday morning so we had to wait about 20 minutes before our group was escorted underground. Eve in the summer I was glad I had a sweater because it was chilly. The guides were knowledgeable. The stairs at the end were very steep and we definitely enjoyed... More

I've been to Luray Caverns a few times and it is never disappointing. It has gotten a little pricey, but there are discounts to be found if you're a savvy shopper. We saved a few bucks by using our Giant Grocery Market club card. There are many attractions at Luray Caverns, but they all have a separate price and really... More

Friends had suggested we take a long detour to visit here and their advice was not misplaced. These are extremely extensive caves. The only shame is that a lot of re-modeling has taken place so that it has the feel of more of an updated exhibit than a natural wonder - but that's commerce.

We saw both the Skyline and Luray on the same day. Glad that I saw both. While Skyline offered a guided tour that provided a lot more information, the ability to walk through Luray while speaking to static guides at our own pace was a nice way to take all of the pictures we wanted to. The sheer magnitude of... More

This is a place I went to as a kid. It is a must-do if you are in the area. I was a bit surprised at the cost as I felt that $24 for an adult was a bit expensive. But it is a pretty cool place to stop and visit. Afterwards, I remember thinking that the 75 minute tour... More

This is a well thought out attraction. Its worth the entry fee ($24 for adults, $12 for kids). We had a discount from a grocery store loyalty card which got us in for half price. Plan on about an hour for the tour. Its all walking. Extremely beautiful and worth seeing.

After much prodding from our kids (ages 10 and 12), we stopped at Luray Caverns on the trip home from WV to CT. And we are all so glad we did! The caverns are quite spectacular. We had the opportunity to enjoy them pretty much on our own as we got there around 5P on a Saturday - when crowds... More
