Caves are always interesting

Half a mile long and not difficult to explore, very interesting the stories about its discovery. Worth the visit.

I am glad we went here before Wind Cave or we would have been disappointed. All was fine. The guide was fine. But, in the future I'd stick to the National Park tours.

After seeing 100s of signs and brochures about the mountain rollercoaster we drove 45 minutes out of our way to get there to find out that it is not completed! My daughter was very upset and disappointed! Why advertise something that is not finished? Oh I know why, to lure people to your park for more money! We turned around... More

After the high crowds of summer leave Keystone, fewer tourists per day tour Rushmore Cave. That was good for us, because tours set off less often, and they are never rushed. Also, there were only about 16 people with our good-humored guide. He made the rule. about not touching the cave walls or other features matter to the kids in... More

Loved the tour through the caves!! A little pricey but well worth it. The steps and passages can be steep and very narrow.

Our family-with-teens appreciated the non-crowded, low-key surroundings while we waited for the cave tour and the two-person zipline ride ("screaming eagle"). The cave had some interesting features and the tour path gave a feeling of exploration (some tight spaces) while still providing safe passage; not recommended for those unable to climb a lot of stairs. Our tour guide offered good... More

The facility is clean and very inviting. It has an old western feel. We did the 7-D interactive ride. We loved it so much we did all three. My youngest (11 yo girl) did the gold panning and really enjoyed finding all the gems.

We visited and paid for the unlimited pass which included the cave tour, unlimited gunslinger and zip line rides. It was a little spendy but we were able to get our money's worth as we did all three of the gunslinger adventures and rode the zip line several times. Not huge crowds and friendly staff.

Out of many different places to go, we decided that this was one of the places to visit. We opted for the cave tour, the gunslinger game and the soaring eagle zip line. Although a bit spendy for a larger group, well worth the money and time. The cave tour was amazing! The gunslinger was fun especially for the young... More
