  • You get headphones to hook up to learn about the cave. Very comfortable walk, not bad if you are older. Fun way to spend a few hours.  more »
  • Okay, for an $8 attraction it was worth it, but throughout the cave there are many cave formations that were broken off when the cave was open to the public which kind of takes away from the experienc...  more »
  • I was reluctant to pay the entry fee to go into a cave, but I'm glad I did. It's cold & wet in there because it IS a "living cave," which is why it's fascinating. So many different formations, colors,...  more »

  • 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!
  • Not a particularly long tour, but a fun, quick, inexpensive experience. We didn't want to devote a whole day to drive from Eureka to the bigger caves with the longer guided tours, so this was a good local option. Yes, there's a good bit of damage from it having been open so long, but still neat to see. Probably a good option if you have younger kids and aren't sure how they'd handle a long tour.
  • Reiterate: the cave is dying. It's very very sad. The radio headset recording are likely from the 60's 'when the boyscout spelunking merit badge was a nickel' meaning that the cave has probably not been protected sincerely since the 60s. The only good thing was the gift store, cheap chess sets. Either way: do not recommend
  • Its great! Its a little out dated but who cares, it's original & ran by the sweetest people. Not to mention walk through the beautiful Onyx cave ! Its a little chilly down there so bring a coat! Peace and love
  • The service was friendly and the information was good. It was an easy walk thru the caves though it was really short. Once you get to the end, you have to turn around and go out the same way you came in. The hike back up the mountain from the business to the parking lot was extremely steep. Overall it was a pleasant experience and was very cheap.
