“Pretty Cool Formation”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2013

The Giant Dome is an unique rock formation that is quite large. It is one of the Carlsbad Cavern's truly amazing formations. If I remember correctly it is located in the Big Room.

“Truly phenomenal structure”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2012

It's hard to really describe the Giant Dome; it's such a unique huge rock formation, one of the Carlsbad Cavern's truly remarkable sites. You simply have to see this to appreciate it.

“Too incredible to describe”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2012

A must see if you are traveling in New Mexico. We were touring the southwest when we decided to stop at the Carlsbad Caverns. It was so incredible that I can't describe how I felt but breathless.

To us, it was better then the Grand Canyon.
