Fun guide took us deep down into these intriguing caverns - pointing out history and geology along the way. Trek culminated at the wondrous 100' waterfalls. Gift shop could be expanded and more organized to make the most of nature's fascinating creation.

I like caves. Whenever we are traveling we look for caves in the area. At $18 per adult, this was a bit on the high side for what you get. The cave itself does not offer many breathtaking formations, and is lacking the standard stalactites...More

This cavern is in a rather natural state. It isn’t commercial and that’s what makes the experience amazing.

Looks to me like a perfect tourist trap, followed one of the tour buses en route to Niagara. The entrance fee is $16 per person and I was not very impressed at all. There was very little historical information about the cave. The walk is...More

I have a house in the area and drink my coffee near secret caverns. But today I decided to go inside. The lobby was freezing, but once we paid our entrance fee (cheaper than the competitor up the road) we walked down 100 stairs into...More

it's about $18 for adults and if you go to their web site their is a $2 off coupon. the tour is 45 minutes but isn't as fancy as Howe's cavern. tours head down about every 20 minutes.
