  • This is by no means what you would expect from any of the larger, commercialized caverns that can be found across the country (Lurary Caverns, etc). These caverns are privately owned and operated and ...  more »

  • The cavern was amazing with spectacular formations, but the tour guide left much to be desired! Because the passages are small and there were more than 10 people in my group, I couldn't even see some of the formations that she described. At one point she even turned off the lights in that portion of the cave before I even got there. Smaller groups and more time to just observe are my recommendations. For $20, the tour was less than 20 minutes long...I felt ripped off! I give the cavern 5 stars and the tour guide 1 star.
  • Now as much as we loved it the price seemed a bit much. Even my 2yo cost $10! It was beautiful, tour guide was awesome, but for a 30 min tour it cost our family and visiting family $120. I'd say check it out at least once but at that price we probably won't be returning.
  • A bit pricey considering that children 12 & up are charged the adult price however the cave formations are quite impressive! Definitely worth seeing!
  • This was my first cave experience. $20 an adult is too expensive in my mind for what I got. The caves are small, cramped, made me feel like I was in Minecraft. The tour guide had a great sense of humor, very personable and friendly. Hard to believe that a beautiful cave like that exits just feet under the ground. It is worth touring at least once.
  • Probably the most interesting natural formation I've ever seen well worth the small fee for the guide and worth a good tip
