My daughter had not been there since she was very young. Last week my daughter and grandson went to The Lost Sea and enjoyed it so when... More

I've been to a number of caves in the Mid Atlantic region, this one offered some unique light shows. Little ones loved it.

Tour was about 45 mins long and it was great to get away from the hustle and bustle of PF and Gburg. There aren't really any tight places to walk through. We were about 175 feet below the surface at one point. It was neat! There's a picnic area on site. Might want to take a light jacket with you... More

Excellent one hour tour and worth the money ($16pp). Very fun and so interesting. I would go again! You might want to bring a jacket if you get cold easily. And be sure to use the bathroom beforehand (no bathrooms 250 fy underground). Also, don't wear nice pants or good shoes (or heels). It's wet in places and there are... More

There were seven of us visiting the Forbidden Caverns, aging from 63 to 5 years. It is a wonderful guided experience into a world underground. There are 59 steps with 50 of them being down. There is an underground river that shows up on various parts of the tour. Our guide did a great job keeping all of us informed... More

We love to explore caves and this one is very good. It's still active, so you get to see how the formations are created.

While on a weekend getaway my hubby and i visited this cavern. Price to get in was reasonable. Our guide was very interactive and attentive to us all. I found this cave very interesting and loved the stories behind it. Really was in awe to see flowing water in it. I love that people are able to see nature and... More

I would suggest the tour groups are limited to no more than 15 people. We had about 25 in our group and it felt very cramped and rushed. I would have loved to hang back and take a few pictures, but as soon as we learned about something and saw it- it was time to move on. The tour guide... More

We were a group of 15 adults and children. The tour was interesting, and we especially liked the underground river. It was just average as far as caves go. The staff was also just average.
