Went on a group outing, second time in the cave and learned something new from the guide's presentation. Great guide, answered all the questions and even threw in other details.

Did not do the Zip Line but my kids and grand kids have and really enjoyed.

Did do the 7D, have to admit 3 times, it was fun and very realistic!

Be sure you take your family for a great outing!

Great facilities. The cave is great, but staff needs to do a better job of explaining that things should not be touched. Fun to climb around and the stories were fun. Kids had miners camps and loved looking in all the holes and cracks. Zip line was fun. Had to wait long time in line for such a short ride. But you wnet fast and they pulled you back up hill. Would do again!!!

I would like to let you know that before visiting this cave, we went to Jewel Cave and Wind cave so we had learned a few things along the way. We thought we would need a flashlight but this cave was very well lit. I would recommend bringing a flashlight is you have small kids. They may like looking around a bit. That being said, this is a good cave for a family of about 5 or 6 but no more then that. The tour size is very big and you don't have much time to slow down and take pictures. There are a few places to stop but this cave isn't a national park and so it doesn't seem as well protected as the other caves we went to. We didn't go on the zip line but it only takes two people at a time so there was a good sized line to ride. We didn't have time to do the 7D interactive thing because they were closing as we got done with our tour. We were told that they planned on making a few more attractions so this will be a site I go back to in a few years.

Now to be fair we skipped the cave part. No time for geology when there is a zip line and shake em shoot em up game. Now youre not in disneyland so curb your enthusiasim but what the team here have done with these experiences is great for a stop a blast and a laugh. The gift shop is pretty great too. All in all a great wee stop so give it a try.

If you like geology this cave was an amazing sight to behold. Our tour group was about 12 the perfect size to hear the guide's information and still see everything at a leisurely pace. Truly spectacular sights of nature's wonders. Zipline was fun as well aand the close location to Mt. Rushmore made this an easy attraction to add to the day. A must see for geology buffs!
