Great find in our backyard! This is a fun place to visit. Self-guided tour but COLD. IT is 52Degrees in the cavern so you may want a sweater. In addition, our elderly parents had a little trouble navigating the stairs and climbs. It is WELL BUILT and accessable, however, need to be able to get up and down stairs. The... More

It took us a little over an hour to see the whole caverns. Very pretty. Lots of different lights to enhance the beauty of the various formations. Good place even with little kids

My family (mom 45, dad 47, kids 16 and 15) went to Lost World Caverns for spring break. Kyle was an outstanding guide. He was patient with mom especially when she had to crawl on her belly and not turn her head in one tight spot. Everyone had a great time. The kids did the more difficult parts in two... More

Lost world cavern is definitely worth the drive to visits. Price is reasonable and stuffs are very friendly and helpful. The cavern is amazing with easy walkways and amazing nature wonders. It takes 45 mins to walk around and I strongly recommend to people who is doing road trip down to the south.

We stopped here on a trip to Orlando. It was a bit off our route but was worth the extra drive. The staff were friendly and helpful and even gave us 10% off for being CAA members. The cave itself is huge and takes about 45 minutes to walk the self guided tour. Worth the $12.

This cavern was a great experience for our family. We have a 14 year old and a 6 year old who enjoyed it equally.

The reviews were good for the place so we decided to make a stop after checking out of our hotel. It is a great experience and especially for the kids (my husband included.) We've been to Mammoth Cave in Kentucky and my husband liked this better. Good signage to explain the formations.

This was actually the second time I've been to the cave. The staff is super friendly, including the four legged ones! The caves are open enough to not make me claustrophobic which is great! They have a self guided tour through the caves to learn a little bit as you walk though! Beautiful drive to get out there as well.

WOW...My husband and I had a blast participating in the Wild Cave Tour! We are in our 40's but definitely active and we was not disappointed at all. Steve and Kyle were fantastic instructors, both were very patient, extremely informative, and constantly being aware of everyone's safety, but still easy enough for us to enjoy ourselves. Our group was separated... More
