We have seen caves in Ohio and Kentucky. We enjoyed the Lost World Caverns because it was a self guided tour. We walked through at our leisure. The area is well lighted and there were many stalagmites and stalactites to see. Definitely worth visiting

I would have to agree with all the recommendations NOT to bring your dog into the caverns. It was very slippery and she could easily hurt herself.

The tour would be fine for a 5 year old with supervision. We take several kindergarten classes on a regular basis for school field trips every year and they all walk the entire tour with no problem.
