Soooo cool. Top notch experience!

Steve (owner) really made this place something not to miss. We stopped in Lewisburg (great town!) on our way back to Pittsburgh and I convinced my claustrophobic wife to go into this cavern. She loved it too and didn’t feel closed in—after all, the place is cavernous. :-) You enter and exit through the gift shop and the price is worth the admission. Such an amazing natural wonder. The little notes at the various stations enhance things. I would recommend to anyone and everyone! The gift shop and llamas and horses on the property add to it. And if you’re hesitant about a self-guided tour, don’t be. You’ll appreciate the ability to go at your own pace and make the experience your own.

My partner and I took the Wild Cave tour with Connor as our guide. We were the only two on the tour (maybe due to Covid restrictions??) and it was a ton of fun. Connor should be a teacher-- he's incredibly socially aware and is able to keep a conversation going. The tour is awesome as a first caving experience and fun if you've caved before. There are some tight squeezes and scarier parts, and Connor was encouraging through them all,. This tour is also very well organized with a snack break, lots of pictures provided with the cost, showers and lunch afterwards provided.

My husband and I were fortunate to enter the caverns when no one else was in there and for that short time, we were in awe of the sense of tranquility that surrounded us. The caverns are well lit and the path secure so we felt very comfortable with a self guided tour. They have done a wonderful job of highlighting the different formations so they can really be appreciated. Definitely a good stop on our trip through that area.

Absolutely loved this cavern!! I had read on some past posts about not being charged for the self guided tour and that was wrong. It only cost us $ 23.00 for 2 Adults. It was so awesome!! So amazing to see all of that underground. The lighting in the cavern was really well done with signs describing what you are seeing. We only passed 2 people and they were headed out as we were headed in, so we had the whole cavern to ourselves, so we were able to take our time to just be in awe. So worth seeing if you can handle going underground. This place was so close to Lewisburg, I think it only took us 10 minutes from our hotel. Loved this experience!!

My son and I toured the cave in mid-June and really enjoyed it. The cave has some great formations and the signs along the path are informative and accessible. We really liked that it was self-guided so that we could be by ourselves throughout the cave. We thoroughly enjoyed our time in the cave!

There are a lot of steps, but that is to be expected in a cave. There were railings and good lighting throughout, and the stairs had slip-guard on them.

Every employee was wearing a mask and there were signs encouraging visitors to do the same (not every visitor was, but we were able to keep our distance, even in the gift shop). They also had hand sanitizer in several spots in the gift shop.

We stopped here yesterday and very happy we did. Close to highway but tucked away that you feel you are in the middle of nowhere which adds to the authenticity of this place.

Upon arrival, staff were amazing to say the least, even the manager who personally looked up my GroupOn.

Walking tour up and down to the cavern made you appreciate what it must have been like years ago to find it. Well Lit and new railing everywhere made everyone feel safe. Gift shop afterwards was a lot of fun and very reasonably priced,

If you are in the area, make sure to add this place to your list

My husband and I did the Wild Cave Tour and it was AMAZING!!!! Liam and Connor were our guides for this more intense tour (which costs a bit more but is worth every penny) and they coached us through over four hours of spelunking. We went nearly 200 feet deep and crawled through spaces I never thought I’d fit through (but they assured me I would, and I did lol!), and it was just… amazing. If you’re looking for a more adventurous tour than the normal tier one, this was definitely worth the extra $$ and actually a great value for the money still yet, since it included showers after, a hot lunch, etc!

The cavern, the museum, the giftshop, and the llamas made this a fun day trip to remember for me and three friends. Bought a Groupon for a discounted rate but would have paid full price. It was worth every penny and more!

My sister(16) and I did the Wild Cave Tour and we had a BLAST! Everything about the trip was world class. The tour started perfectly on time and they were ready with all the gear, our tour guide, Liam, was phenomenal, and the tour itself far exceeded my expectations. After the tour, showers were provided and they were super clean. They gave us a meal as part of our tour, and the food was way better than I expected from a tour shop. The owner came out and spoke to us while we ate and he was super sweet and genuinely interested in how our trip went. At the end the gift shop was super cute and all the staff were very friendly. I don’t typically leave reviews, but we are still talking about how great it was start to finish. We cannot wait to come back to WV specifically for Thai tour.

It was like being on another planet! I’ve never seen anything like it. The pathways are very well made, the railings were sturdy and while you still needed to be careful due to some areas being wet, I didn’t feel unsafe at any point. 10/10
