This was a great stop on a very hot day and the colored lights made it very exciting for my toddler. I think they could probably trim down the script for the tour guides, the length of the walk is quite long as it is and about 2/3 of the way through we were all starting to feel pooped and... More

For Mother's Day I took my Grandmother and Mother to Skyline Caverns. Some might complain that it's small, but the formations were beautiful. I will definitely be back and will bring some kids with me.

O found this tour to be small but very pleasant. You can get close to the formations and you are not rushed through the tour. You can take your time and ask as many questions. The staff has answers that are interesting and sometimes funny. This is my second trip here and I enjoyed it as much as the first... More

We very much enjoyed our 1-hour tour with a young guide at Skyline Caverns. Wear good walking shoes and a sweater to best enjoy this experience. We heard interesting stories and learned about the typical cave formations (stalagmites, stalactites, and draperies) but the most fascinating aspect were the Anthodites. Only found in 4 places in the world, these formations are... More

My husband and I were greeted by a very efficient young man as we bought our full-price tickets (no where listed on their signs is it indicated that discounts are available for seniors or military, but go online for a coupon). We waited no more than 10 minutes for our tour. Our guide was well-trained, although her voice was too... More

With two grandchildren (ages 8 and 10) to entertain this summer, my husband and I were looking for experiences that combined fun with a bit of education. We found Skyline Caverns to be the perfect solution. Arriving in Front Royal at 11:30, we ate lunch at the nearby (about a mile) Spelunker's, then went on to the caverns. There are... More

When Skyline Drive opened in the late 1930's, cashing in on the tourist visiting the area led to an intentional effort to discover this cavern. As caverns go, it an interesting view of a very "young" cavern. The cavern is fully carved out, but is too young to have the stalactite and stalagmite formations seen in other caves. An that...
