My wife and I visited the cave today. It was interesting but a bit cheesy. Including tax it was about $21 per person. Also we thought the first tour would leave upon opening but it didn't start till 10:30.

I would think so but we only did the Mark Twain cave. If you like to see caves that have bats in them then you would need to do the other cave tour as the Twain cave does not have them.
