Experience Moaning Cavern's thrilling new above ground activity.The New Zip Line also, now available, our custom built 32-ft tall Climbing Tower has easy to hard climbing routes and is suitable for the entire family!
Staff and facilities were great. During the tour of the cave the staff played well with the kids and kept their attention quite well. I do wish the pricing was a little more friendly for larger families. I don't understand why adults are twice as much as kids for the tour? Overall, it was a good time and enjoyable to all the age ranges we brought. It was a fun way to kill a half day.
I love caves! Moaning Cavern is gorgeous to see, but be prepared because you're going to have to descend 235 stairs to get in there. If you're adventurous, you can also try the 165 ft rappel into the cavern instead of taking the stairs down. However, those stairs are the only way out of of cave! While you're there, hop on those zip lines because they are a blast. Don't forget to go visit the amazing resident bird, Cuddles the Moluccan Cockatoo. He loves to strut, show off and chat with you! There is also a 3 hour spelunking adventure available here. It's by reservation only, but absolutely worth it!!!!!
Staff were fun and friendly. Made my wife and I feel safe when we took our daughter on the zip line for her fourth birthday. The cave tour was very interesting.
We took the kids for their Birthday gift and it was wonderful. My husband and I took the walking tour to the bottom of the cavern to watch the kids rappel down. The kids not only rappelled but also did the zip-line and gem mining. Great memories and great pictures! Thank you for helping give an adventure to the kids for their Birthday!
Basically, one very large open chamber with some huge formations! The staircase getting in is quite difficult (165ft vertical) but of interesting construction. They do "adventure tours" which are probably more rewarding, with a long rappel, some actual creating around in the mud, and much more of the cave to explore. Didn't get to try that, out the zip line which seems very popular.
