Never been to laurel caverns. It was a different cave then Lincoln and Penn Caves. There are no stalagmites and stalatites in this cave. More rocks then anything. Have a crawling expedition if you want to get muddy.

This is the largest cave in PA, located on a geological preserve, and is naturally formed. Although the Laurel Caverns does not have spectacular stalactite or stalagmite formations (such as we have seen in South Africa), the guided tour was interesting and unique. The caverns offers different tours, from the basic family 1 hour tour (which we went on) to... More

We had a great tour with an informative, experienced guide. My husband and I opted for the family tour (I was wearing flip flops) which was interesting and very doable. There are more advanced tours available requiring more courage and athleticism. The light show at the end was unnecessary, but I think the well behaved kids on our tour enjoyed... More

We had Justin as our guide for the lower caving and he was amazing. He was full of knowledge and answered all of our questions. It was so much fun and I'd highly recommend. It's also a great way to beat the heat.

Took my six year old following our trip to the zoo and she was awestruck. The one hour guided tour was perfect, a good tour of the caverns with a bit of learning on top. The sad story of the massive bat losses brought a lot of things into perspective about our ecosystem. Make sure you bring a jacket, it... More

Was a stop on our recent vacation. Was a neat place with plenty for kids to do. The short tour was filled with plenty of information about the cave and bats that reside there. Our guide was very friendly and informative. After our tour we were treated to see live bats up close

We had a tour for 65 during a family reunion. They accommodated our group and did a nice job with an educational tour guide. Having visited caverns in VA and CA I found these underwhelming, but it was a good activity for our group during a rainy week. The lights to music show thrilled the kids!

On day 2 of our Laurel Highlands adventure my son and I stopped at Laurel Caverns for one of their tours. Prices were reasonable and tours leave frequently; we grabbed tickets and joined a tour that was just starting. Our guide was knowledgeable and the tour was great fun. My son is 8, but it would definitely be feasible for... More
