The woman at the ticket counter was very short (maybe even rude?!?) and down to business, no niceties. The tour guide was good. The cave has some beautiful formations, but for the price it's a relatively short tour and you don't see all that much. Because you ride in a car it's great for those with mobility concerns, but walking... More

This was my first time in Springfield from OKC & my family decided to tour the caverns...GREAT IDEA! For 4 of us, we paid about $100 which didn't seem that expensive to me. Our tour guide, Vic, was absolutely amazing. Great guy and very informative. He made this experience so much more enjoyable for us. The cavern was beautiful, loved... More

Great tour! Great tour guide. Cave was cool inside which was great because the temp outside was 90ish. The only thing bad I would say were the women's bathroom. It looked clean but had an awful smell. Sort of like old sewage or old urine. Its only 23 bucks and was worth it. Very cool!

This is a ride through cavern. What they pull you in, isn't very comfortable. From what we could see of the cave, (not well lit), it was a nice cave. The tour guide was very pleasant and knowable. He answered what ever questions we asked. It's a one time visit for us.

Really fascinating tour in the beautiful caverns. It's expensive but a welcome break on a long, hot road trip. You'll learn a little about the history of the cavern, experience total darkness and in the summer it's nice and cool inside. A fun stop for sure.

I took my son there for a fun day. We have never been, it was awesome. Its like a nature hike underground. If you have never been, go. It is worth the time to create some memories. History in the making.

This place is great! A wonderful 1 hour tour via a Jeep pulled wagon. Beautiful cavern and fun history. Definitely worth the money and time!
