  • There are much more caves in the area and I recommend to go to the others. If you have plenty of time and don't mind to pay... it's ok, but the cave is not a marvelous!  more »

  • The self-guided tour is conducted over cold-war era (at best) headphones and radio broadcasting from each stop. It's not super-engrossing, but it is unintentionally hilarious at times. It's not a loca...  more »

  • What a fun experience! We took our 5 and 2 year old and they loved going in a cave for the first time. We had to carry the baby carrier but it wasn't a problem as there were many places to set him down while viewing the cave. The retro headsets were fun and there are some great formations to see. This place is kind of a throwback but that adds to its charm. The couple running the place were fantastic and friendly. Neat stuff in the gift shop too. The tour is only 30 minutes and I'd recommend if you like a quick tour.
  • This is the smallest cave I've been in, but it was still pretty neat. It's a self-guided tour where you listen to headphones and push a green light for each section of the cave. It was a little hard to listen to, especially if the people in front of you are moving slowly and you get stuck listening to two different recordings. Other than that, the recordings were very informative. I especially liked the part where he says to stop and reflect on how some people probably lived in caves at least temporarily and to imagine what it would be like trying to navigate without the railings and stairs. It's pretty chilly in the cave (57 degrees), so if you get cold easily make sure you take a jacket with you.
  • I always love going back there! Owners were very nice and funny! The cave was beautiful and my husband and I got to explore with just the two of us down there. Felt like we could take our time during the walk through. Great little gift shop too with unbeatable prices!! The only thing I disliked was the walk from the parking lot to the cave, steep! I felt like I should of had a Kim Kardashian booty by time we got back to our car. All in all, wonderful place, great to take the kids to explore.
  • Very reasonable price to get in and see! Family friendly atmosphere and the gift shop is even reasonable priced. The tour is very laid back and it's all on your own so you can take as long as you need :)
  • Fantastic cave to explore! The audio tour you get hear while exploring the cave was recorded in 1977 and it is Awesome! The people who operate the cave are are genuinely nice people and take a lot of pride in the place. If you are looking for a hi tech, ultra modern experience this is not it, but if you are looking for a fun family trip that will take you back to your childhood this is exactly for you. Don't forget to pick up a souvenir from the gift shop! P.S this is NOT a dying cave!
