Sorry this review is a little late, but I couldn't pass up the opportunity to review this GREAT attraction! We visited in March 2020 (before things got super bad with Covid). I learned about Colossal from a wonderful camping group on Facebook, when we couldn't make reservations for Kartchner. I had hoped it would be "okay". It was MORE than "okay"!!! If you can, make your reservation "on line" (just so you can pick the tour and time you want). It is possible to do "walk up", but if you can do it, it's worth it. We brought 4 adults and my two grandsons (5 & 8). Everyone we encountered were friendly and helpful. Check in is easy in the Gift Shop. Had a lot of fun in the Gift Shop and found "something for everyone". At the time we went there was wonderful food service available, with seating on their covered patio with EXCELLENT views. Of course Covid changed everything and I understand the food service may have had to be eliminated or changed dramatically (BUMMER !!!!! Unbelievably yummy "Fundido Queso & homemade chips" !!! Even some delightful bottled beers.) Oh well -- Covid has affected EVERYTHING !!" Anyway -- THE TOUR of the Cave was wonderful; my Grandkids can't wait to go back! FREE PARKING and easy access to head off for hiking from the property once you finish your tour. What else can I say -- we REALLY enjoyed our day at Colossal Cave Mountain Park and will definitely be back again !!!

Found this place online so booked 2pm tour for me and my family. Luckily no one else booked so it was private, Tour took approx 30-40 mins. Very interesting and Matt despite only working their a short time was very knowledgable. Gift shop is pretty expensive, such as $8.99 for a metal magnet! Drop your prices you will get more business.

At first we paid to go inside the cave. We had to wait for anyone, we enjoyed the cacti. The guide was very friendly and she was eager to tell what we saw. There was a lot of light. That is good. There were remnants from people in the very past. That was interesting. We enjoyed those rocks. We came here for that and we enjoyed all the time. I had not seen anyone that was complaining. Everybody liked visiting the cave. This is a must see! I enjoyed the cacti outside also!

It is a very nice cave. The tour guide was very entertaining and knowledgeable. I have been in several caverns/caves and this was a nice relaxing change of pace. It felt very personal and since your so close to the formations you feel like your exploring rather than just following a guide with your hands in your pockets. I highly recommend this for anyone, especially people that have seen the Journey to the Center of the Earth. It was great thrill for my teen boys. I know girls would also enjoy it.
