Even being objective, I strongly disagree with many other visitors. This is the most dangerous, poorly kept cave we have experienced anywhere in the world!! And we have been in many, many caves. Nothing much seems to have been done to make it safe or attractive since it was first opened over 40 years ago. Including the pitiful toilets! A tourist trap in the extreme.
Electric cords everywhere, no rail by very steep drop-offs, uneven stairs that are dark in MANY places and slippery. And, there are over 400 steps, if I recall. Especially taking 2 grandchildren (ages 5 and 7) was a traumatic experience.
Never were we so glad to leave a place 'whole' in our lives. Everything in the gift shop cheap and overpriced as well.
Admission far too expensive for the experience. Should be inspected for safety violations and closed! We did have a great guide, but this was the only positive part of the visit.
