  • My daughter and I loved this! Pictures cannot explain how beautiful the tour of the cave was! The wildlife tour was long. And it felt like more of a drive through a zoo (animals are fenced for the mos...  read more »
  • I live in State College (20 minutes away) and people tend to take things for granted when they're in your back yard, so my girlfriend and I decided to check this place out for the first time since we ...  read more »
  • We came here on the recommendation from friends. As we drove out there to it, it seemed like we were going to the middle of no where and were in for a disappointment. But it was the opposite of that! ...  read more »
  • Really enjoyed the cave tour with the kids. They loved it. Cave drippings are called "Cave Kisses" and the kids proudly counted how many kisses they received in the cave. The tour guide was genuinely entertaining. We did not take the Wildlife tour, so I cannot comment on it. The park itself was very crowded / popular. We were fortunate to find a table on the deck to sit at and relax while waiting for our tour. I want to share that the boat tour can be challenging to handicapped individuals to access. Not only is the access point at the bottom of a very steep hill, but there is a large staircase at the bottom. We had no problem navigating this ourselves, but I was debating how I would navigate this tour with my disabled mother. Just a word of caution for anyone planning to visit.
  • This place was incredible! My children had a blast. Our wildlife tour guide LIZ was awesome! Despite the heat will still had a good view of animals. Our cave guide DAVE was funny and very knowledgeable! We would recommend everyone to check it out. Boys loved the maze and panning for gems. We'll definitely be back!!
  • Very fun place to be on a hot day! It's worth it just for the natural ac. The tour was decently long and staff was equally knowlegeable about the cave. They were very professional too and well dressed. For the price of just a cave tour, I think they can afford to upgrade their engines to electirc ones. The diesel fumes got pretty bad a few times, enough to trigger my asthma. The engines are also pretty loud and being in a cave doesn't help that. But I would definitly recommend stopping by here, it's a really cool place literally and figuratively.
  • A very unique and informative way to spend the afternoon...Schedules are very organized and the guides are friendly and knowledgeable. The onsite gift shop has a variety of books, clothes and knick knacks available for purchase.
  • Excellent experience! Enjoyed our boat tour of the amazing caves! And our tour guide was hilarious and also informative. Definitely worth the money. Kids enjoyed panning for gems afterwards. Looking forward to going back some day!
