  • The entire family really enjoyed the tour! Our guide, Sawyer Hagen, I believe, was really enthusiastic and it was contagious. Look for him on your next visit!  more »
  • If you've ever played Roller Coaster Tycoon, there's a moment about the one year mark where you've got a few attractions and you've spent wisely, but you're not quite a theme park. That's Rushmore Mou...  more »
  • We didn’t do the cave tour as we went to Jewel Cave or the aerial course because the course doesn’t compare to Rushmore Tramway Adventures aerial course. The mountain coaster ride here was a blast and...  more »

  • We experienced the cave in 2007 and it was great. Went back this year, 2018 and they have added so many great rides. Buy a wrist band for each family member and enjoy at least half a day of unlimited rides, which also imcludes the cave tour. This really could be made into a whole day trip. Not very handicap accessible, due to the mountain like terrain but the coaster is accessible. Plan to hike up steep inclines to most of the activities. We went on a Monday in August and had no lines to deal with meaning our kids went on ride after ride after ride.
  • Gorgeous ride through the Black Hills National Forest - breathtaking views. Fun, adventurous and educational too. Something for everyone. **I found accessibility for people with limitations to be difficult though** I was challenged by the amount of stairs to entrance and strenuous cave walk. Beautiful location, facilities, equipment and staff. Gift shop, bathrooms, snacks, gifts and souvenirs. We (2 adults) were there for a couple hours; however, it was raining. If you have kids, nice weather or plan more activities (coaster, zip line, challenge, guided tour, panning for gold, etc), plan on several hours. Although signs along the way gave no distance - enjoy the ride!
  • Awesome customer service. The crew went above and beyond to accommodate us. Savanna checked with management and the tour guides for our unique requests. The cave tour was awesome. The "adventure" caving tour was well worth the cost, highly recommended for the slightly adventurous. Kevin was an awesome tour guide!!! Would highly recommend this place maybe even more than three unhelpful National Park caves in the area. This place and the people ROCK !!!
  • We had a ton of fun here. The roller coaster and the ropes course was a blast. My six year old son was very brave on the high parts of the ropes course...very fun! The cave was amazing as well. After being in the hot sun most of the day, we were able to cool off with a one hour hike in the cave.
  • Top notch attraction! The owners are pouring the profits back into the facility and it shows. New rides every year, everything is clean, the food is tasty, the employees are polite and conversational. Also has RV parking. Lots of stairs though, this definitely earned the "mountain" part of the name. Ride the personal roller coaster as often as you can!
