  • The boat ride in the cave was fantastic and well worth while doing...the scenery getting there was great, the visitors shop has a nice array of items...we are going back in the summer to do the wildli...  more »
  • We drove 7 hours (each way) to see this cave. Was it worth it? It would probably have been a great stop, if we had stopped here on our way to some other destination. The cave itself is spectacular. Th...  more »
  • Been wanting to go here for years and finally made it -every bit as cool as I hoped! We've been to a lot of caves in the Mid Atlantic area, but this was different -you ride a boat all the way through ...  more »
  • First time riding a boat through Caverns. It was a very different and enjoyable experience. Bring a jacket/sweatshirt out purchase one in the gift shop. The temp in the caves is around 55 degrees year round. I also recommend the safari tour. Be sure to listen to your guide and do exactly what you're told, especially when you get to the wolf enclosure. They are very shy. I was lucky enough to see them for a few minutes, because everyone one the bus followed instructions. The staff is very knowledgeable and willing to answer all of your questions. I can't wait to take my kids.
  • The tour was great and the tour guide was very knowledgeable. My husband and I only have one criticism. That would be to make it handicap accessible so that all can enjoy it. We observed a gentleman who obviously had a stroke walking with a cane and had trouble getting his leg up for all of those steps. He struggled. Please look into helping all people to be able to enjoy the wonder of the cave.
  • Had a birthday party for an animal loving 5 year old on the wildlife tour bus. Feeding the wolves was the highlight for him. The animals in the large outdoor fenced areas had lots of space and habitat--it was cool to be in among them for the elk and deer. The old bears in their pen were doing fine by traditional but it still did give a little bit of the sad cooped up creature feeling that you can feel in a regular zoo.
  • Very interesting cave. Super friendly and informative staffs. Little cold in the cave with a little breezes. I love it. Please enjoy the nature when you get there.
  • 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.
