This is a great attraction. We enjoyed it very much, our tour guide was really informative. There are quite a few steps to go up/down, its best to go in a small group as space is tight in some spots.

A group of 11 motercycle riders decided to check out the Wonderland Caves during a Sturgis trip. We were not sure what it would be but were up for the task. John was our tour guide and resident Cave expert. Not only did he make it interesting but he really made it fun. We all laughed at his wit and... More

Perfect stop on a really hot day. We were on motorcycles and there was a gravel road into the caves but it's hard packed gravel so no difficulty getting in. The tour guide was a young man who was very knowledgeable and entertaining. The cave itself is quite large with lots of features to view. There are quite a few... More

A little pricey at appr. 15 bucks per person but very interesting. Preston is a great young man and outstanding tour guide! Saw very cool things. A couple notes, bring a jacket if you get cold easy. You'll be in the cave for appr. 45 minutes, it's 47 degrees year round in there. There are appr. 200 stairs between the... More

Cute cave. Waaaaay out there. Path down had a bunch of stairs. Tour went in a large circle. Guide Dalton was pretty entertaining. Started with our own tour and 15 people joined so we had to wait for another 10 minutes to enter cave. Tour was good. Had to duck a few times and unlike other mines in the area... More

We recently took our two small granddaughters (5 and 7) to Wonderland Cave. At first they expected the cave to be like the haunted house they visited last Halloween. We told them it would be nothing like that. They had no frame of reference to caves whatsoever. Now, they understand what caves are all about. The tour was about the... More

Ok, first and foremost I have to warn readers that I have a degree in the environmental sciences and studied ecotourism and interpretation at the graduate level. I've seen caves, more than anyone really needs to, but I am a sucker for geology and a good interpreter. Wonderland delivers on both. Even if you've seen caves before, this tour will... More

We always enjoy visiting places like this; we enjoyed our tour of the cave. We would have enjoyed it more had our tour group not been so large; we were at the very back, so we missed a lot of the narration and felt rushed to see things to catch up with the group. Our guide was friendly and knowledgeable.

Wonderland Cave is definately off the beaten path. You will begin to wonder if you are on the right track before you get there. A small gift shop. The public restrooms are outhouses. A short walk to the cave. It's a nice tour. About 150 stairs in the cave so you may need to rest coming back up. There are... More

Great cave. Informed guide. Fair price. Fun for all ages. Worth the beautiful drive into the black hills.
