“Stumping Spelunking”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2013

There is just something wild and wonderful about caves. It is a final frontier full of ancient rock sculptures, subterranean chambers, tight passages and unusual critters. There is no better place for your first cave adventure than the "Wild Cave Tour". I've taken many cave virgins to Lost World, ages 9 to 65 years. All have enjoyed it. The staff and guides are amazing. They equip, train and entertain you; guide you safely through crannies and climbs; provide water and snacks during the 4 hour trek; provide hot showers and clean towels upon your return; feed you a hot meal while your pictures are downloaded to CD. This is the best year-round activity in the Coolest Small Town in American (Budget Travel Magazine 2011).

“Something Fun to do on a Rainy Day!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2013

I wanted to do the wild tour at the Lost World Caverns, but didn't have enough people to do the tour the day I was there. I did go do the self guided tour of the caverns and enjoyed seeing the formations. It was very beautiful down there and I got some great pictures. Fun thing to do with the kids.

“Best cavern in WVA”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2013

We've visited lots of caverns in WVA, and Lost Worlds was by far the coolest and most unique of all! The tour is self-guided so you can move at your own pace. At one point, our party of 4 was the only group in the cavern and it makes for an eerie, even spiritual experience. They have left the cavern in a very rugged conditIon, with huge stones all over the floor that have dropped from the cavern ceiling. The cavern is one huge long room, and you feel like you're on another planet....a terrific experience!

“Worth the drive”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 17, 2013

We drove 9 hours from Toronto to do the Wild Cave Tour and it was well worth it! The tour is 4-5 hours long; expect to get muddy and wet! If you've never been caving Lost World Caverns is the place to go. This cave has everything: tight squeezes, long crawls, tall shafts, slides and large caverns.
Everything is included in this tour - all you need to bring is clothing that you don't mind getting dirty. Helmets, headlamps, gloves, snacks, drinks and hot lunch is included. OH and photos of your adventure mailed to your home.
Steve, the owner, was great! He has been guiding through the cave for 12 years and was still just as excited and entertained to watch us struggle through some of the obstacles/challenges.
This is a must do adventure and well worth the trip.
