The caverns were fantastic to see. The kids enjoyed it, even the little ones. And don't buy stones at the gift store...go across the street to the little house and mine for gems (the big bag is $25 and has huge cool ones in it).

I first went here as a small boy,so I wanted to see it again as an adult. So maybe 50-55 years later here I am. I'm not sure but I seem to recall that there were colored lights on the formations but don't hold me to that. Now they are lighted with normal floods and taking pictures without flash is... More

There is nothing terribly impressive about the tour information or the tour guides, However, that doesn't matter at this particular site because it is so visually spectacular that you are in awe the entire hour you are down in the caverns. The tour guides are really just there to move you along and answer your questions. Bring a camera, because... More

Had been to the caverns and it was one of a kind. really good and had a good guide to tell us about each of the formations. The only downside was the wait time to get in and the amount of people per trip. They can reduce the numbers to make it more manageable. The Car & Carriage museum is... More

For reasons I don't fully understand, I've been climbing into a number a caves and caverns lately, from California to Barbados. I knew in advance that this was a highly commercialized site, not a national park, and some had suggested to me that it was a tourist trap. Not so! The tour was worth its weight in gold. The site...

This is a very beautiful and amazing cavern. I have only been in one other one but it was years ago and I know if it looked like this I wouldn't have waited so long to go in another one. The colors and reflections in pools of water is just gorgeous! It is well worth the time and money and... More

Took the Godkids to see one of my favorite attractions. Enjoyed our trip seeing the cave, the toy train and the car museum. The kids had a ball. Great time and great memories were made.

We visited on a weekday morning in October so there was no line. We were with a group of about 20 to tour the cavern - a little over an hour underground with a knowledgeable and friendly guide. There were lots of beautiful formations and several shallow lakes that reflected all the formations in the ceilings above - spectacular! My... More

When we arrived the line was most of the way down the sidewalk. The price seemed pretty expensive but they do offer senior and military discounts. The line moved quickly and we went in the cavern with a large group. The cavern had some really neat formations. The lake was impressive and the organ was really cool. The downsides were... More

I went to visit the cave with friends while visiting East Coast. It was beautiful cave and it costs only $24 per person. I can not describe in details but it worth to visit.
