  • Tour was very informative and the views in the Caverns were stunning in spots. It is a tad chilly at a constant 54 degrees so bring a sweater and be prepared for about a mile-long walk below ground that takes about an hour. You will not regret the time spent.
  • Literally, An experience I will never Forget! I was traveling and had seen the brochure, it was nice however the entire experience is indescribable! Parking was easy, even on the busy Fourth of July Weekend. I walked in and had to enjoy a refreshment from one of the last surviving true Fountain Soda machines, very rare alone. Purchased a ticket, they are timed tickets. While waiting I bought a postcard and mailed it from what was said to be the smallest existing post office. I never received that card. When announced, it is made clear when it is your turn to view the Cavern System. An old elevator is required to have access to the caverns. It stops and you are in one of the most beautiful cavern systems. Because it is commercial it has been prepared with lighting that enhances the natural beauty. My guide was appealing to adults and children, answering each question and even prompting thought! The tour was long, if you go make sure you wear proper footwear (sneakers or Hikers) and may prefer a light jacket to accommodate the natural temperature of 54 Degrees Fahrenheit (a contrast to the 81 Degree as I write this) If you are traveling with a group and you do not like caves but others do, there is a gift shop with some very unique items as well as a restaurant where you can wait... Cavern tour time Plan on 1.25 hours to fully experience plus waiting time for timed tickets. If planning to stop, consider 2.5 total hours for this event. Admission was $25 for adults, and worth each cent. I noted everyone was treated with respect. Have made suggestion for others to go, and they thanked me for the recommendation and said they too enjoyed.
  • We went here back in 7/2015 and had a great tour and theu have a nice size gift shop. Plus they have a Cafe that is open from Jun to Labor Day. The food was excellent and they have a old time soda fountain. I would go back again.
  • Amazing!! Wonderful tour guides. Beautiful caverns with lights included and also natural lighting. Also a really cool gift shop inside with beautiful jewelry!
  • If you like caves, and rocks this is a fun place. If you don't you won't really enjoy it. I feel the price was a bit high for what it was. Pros: •friendly staff •souvenir shop had a nice selection Cons: •pricey, was $70 after a few discounts for 3 adults, a 10yr old, and a 4yr old. •once you start the tour you have to finish it •no places to sit while on the tour so be ready to be walking for about an hour.
