Worth the price of admission, with fair rates for adults, children 4-12 and 3 and under being free. We are a family of 7, 2 parents and 5 children ranging in age from 15-3. Every one of us had a unique experience and we were able to navigate the caves and walkways. The small zoo was fabulous for all the... More

We stopped here later in the afternoon one day while in the area. We arrived close to 4pm and they said we should head right to the caves and then visit the other areas afterwards. The website said they stop selling tickets at 5pm, an hour before the park closes. So we headed right to the caves. My kids, 14... More

My son of 12, loved and went through all of the caves twice in about an hour or so. Got a bunch of stuff from the gift shop to remeber the trip. All the staff were kind and helpful. Everything was well kept and clean. It's a lot of ducking making yourself small and going places you probably normally wouldn't... More

Living in New England my entire life, we passed signs for this countless times. I finally made the trip with the intention of visiting, along with my wife and children of 9, 12 boys and 14-year-old daughter. The caves are cool in both experience and temperature - a welcome respite from the heat. I could navigate almost every feature without... More

We were drawn to polar caves after a rock climbing reservation we had fell through. They have a fairly new exhibit featuring a 40ft rock wall with 2 different difficulties and also a 170ft climb. They give you a quick rappelling lesson for each to get back to ground level. A 4 pack for the rock wall was only $25... More

The brochures and website for this place are covered in photos of small children. For that reason I was a bit concerned about brining my 14 year old as I thought she would be bored. This is a very cool rainy day activity. It's also self guided so you can go at your own pace. The first few caves are... More

Polar Caves is a pretty cool place to visit and something different to do with the family. The experience of walking, climbing and sometimes crawling through the caves is something unique. Beautiful views of mountains and landscapes from the top of the "boardwalk". I don't recommend for anyone who has claustrophobia or health issues that prevent you from climbing quite... More

My parents took me many years ago, and I wanted to share it with my grandkids. They had a blast. It was hot but the cave were "cool"

Our family had a great time at the Polar Caves yesterday, August 12, 2016. Upon arrival you enter through a beautiful and large gift shop. There are refreshments and clean bathrooms. I purchased a magnet and sticker to remember our trip. There was also candy, clothes, crystals, and much more. We then walked through a cute animal park on our... More

I had been here a few times as a kid on family vacations and loved it then. I was a little afraid of a few of the caves then but finally faced down a few fears and committed to making my way through all of the caves that were open, including the Lemon Squeeze. It was so much fun finding... More
