Not into caves but visited this one twice in the last four years. It truly is an amazing place. Worth visiting especially if you throw in a visit to the Carriage Museum and have kids enjoy getting lost in the maze next door. A good place for families with school age children to visit.

Wonderful time exploring the caverns. The shop has allot of unique items to look over and purchase. You should have the ability to do a moderate hike thru the caverns in cool temperatures. An exciting adventure

Nice caverns, beutifull formations, knowlegable staff. You go though the caverns as a large group. I enjoyed hearing the organ play.

This place is amazing. The tour takes about 90 minutes and the guides are excellent. Words cannot describe the beauty of this place. Every turn opens a new view that is as stunning as the last. This is a must see if you're in the area.

I have been coming here since I was a kid. My parents took me, as I pass it on to my children in hopes they do the same for theirs one day. It never gets old and always memorable. I highly recommend this cavern for any person of any age. They also offer a pretty nice collection of antique cars... More

We had a terrific guide to walk us through the 1.5 mile path through the caverns. The formations are just incredible, and we took tons of pictures. I thought our group was a little too large - it made the tour somewhat noisy, and hard to take pictures without strangers in them. Sadly, through the years it looks as though... More

We enjoyed this masterpice of nature. God has indeed created so many wonders that our eyes and our imagination will be always surprised. The one-hour tour is very convenient. Easy to walk. With light on each path so you can enjoy the view while being safe. There is even an organ!! I couldn't understand how it works, but it sound... More
