If you are looking for something to do away from all the people and traffic of Gatlinburg or Pigeon Forge, this is a great side trip. It is located about 20 miles from Pigeon Forge, but it is an enjoyable ride.
It may be obvious but this attraction is not handicap accessible. You will also need to be able to descend and climb many, many stairs and be able to walk while bending at the waist in a couple of areas. Depending on the size of your group and the number of questions, you should plan on being underground for 1 to 1 1/4 hours. The temperature is 58 degrees and most people will do fine without a coat.
The cave and the formations are awesome to see, especially if you stop to remember how may millions of years it has taken to create this beautiful location. Our tour guide was knowledgeable about the caves and the formations. There is a stream running through the entire length of the cave and there is a location where you are able to touch and/or taste the water. The other fun part of the tour is when the guide turns off the lights to provide you absolute darkness. It truly is amazing how dark, dark can really be.
Our family found the attraction priced appropriately, the staff and guide friendly, the caves beautiful and worthy of a return trip at some point in the future.
