We had a blast. There is so much to do, the cave, gem mining, mini golf, petting zoo, and a play ground.

We only went into the cavern, but there were many other activities; peeing zoo; gem mining; maze. Each cost an entrance fee. Clean restrooms on site. Bring a sweater or jacket. It's chilly in the cave. Gave it 4 starts instead of 5 bc there were not tour guides (understandable due to covid), but most of the audible stories they had throughout the cave did not work. Would've been nice to hear all of the information.

We were on our way back to Michigan after a trip to the Columbus Zoo and decided to take a more scenic route home, when we noticed a small sign advertising this place. It sounded interesting so we decided to check it out. It turned out to be quite a surprise. It was honestly one of the most unexpectedly interesting places I’ve ever been. The tour was not guided, so we had some difficulty finding the cavern entrance. We expected to hike down a path in the woods or something to get there. After some confusion, we entered a small red cabin which had been converted into a mini museum. After admiring the items on display discovered inside the cavern, we noticed a door ajar which appeared to lead the way into the cabin basement. Above it, a sign read “Olentangy Caverns” The small staircase led down to a landing, and when we turned to the left expecting another flight of stairs we were instead confronted with a sense of surprise and wonder similar to what I imagine the Goonies experienced when they finally discovered One-Eyed Willy’s pirate ship.

For years, I have been by the signs advertising this place. I decided to visit the caverns. It is a great place to spend a couple hours, and there are activities for the whole family to enjoy. The cost to get in is reasonable. A place to mine for gems, a petting zoo, and a treasure hunt maze will help keep the kids entertained. The caverns themselves are not too big. There are stairs that must be climbed, so be award of that. The employees I met were very knowledgeable and friendly. I would recommend this experience to anyone, especially those interested in science and geology.
