A lot of fun, but be prepared to spend some money

We did several activities at the family fun center. Our kids are 14, 11, and 6, so it can be hard... read more

Down the steps, walk in, turn around and go back the way you came. Our tour guide had some sort of speech pattern that made it virtually impossible to understand him. Waste of time and money.

We did several activities at the family fun center. Our kids are 14, 11, and 6, so it can be hard to find activities that entertain all of them. Perry's Cave and Family Fun Center was a hit with all three! The Cave tour itself...More

I knew what to expect, so I was not disappointed. However, for those who have been to Ohio Caverns or Mammoth Cave, this will seem tiny. The tour is about 20 minutes and led by the teenagers who work in the gift shop above the...More

Steep stairs into the cave entrance and low ceilings. Our guide was knowledgeable and interesting. We appreciated the history lesson on Perry's connection to the cave. Also bummed about the previous owner's careless and destructive practices. Glad the current company is trying to restore. We...More

Cool to see as a part of history. Its a quick tour- very short walk. If you are tall- duck!! Best part for the kids was the gem and fossil mining- days later it is all they are talking about. The mini golf was cool...More

Perry's Cave is not very large and was disappointing in that we expected it to be bigger and have more formations and more interest. It is an underground cave and has a small water source.

The cave trip was a bit pricey for the time spent. The tour was very rehearsed but the young girl giving the tour was doing her best. We enjoyed hearing the history of the cave. I would not really recommend the cave for young children....More

Hello. The only method to get in and out of the cave is a set of steps that get very narrow toward the bottom of the cave. The cave ceiling also lowers so many people are ducking a little while taking steps that many need... More
