We enjoyed this attraction mostly because it was accessible for my 80 year old mother-in-law. We were comfortable for the ride, the guide could have been louder in speaking and maybe of offered more information.

I hadn't been here since I was a child. It's as beautiful inside as I remember. There are some very low spots so remember to duck. This is fun for all ages. You don't have to walk, just get in the tram and enjoy the ride. I took a friend that had never been and she was mesmerized the entire... More

We have been through several caves in the area but I really appreciated that you get to ride through this one. The huge rooms in this cave are just awesome and it's it's truly one of Missouri wonders.

This is so great because it is the only ride through cave in North America, so people who can't walk far is able to go and it is great for kids too. The cave is really nice and the tour guide was super nice.
