Cool cave, but too commercialized and our tour guide sounded like a robot. This place charges too much for the experience. I am more of a cave person, and I am less interested about the types of movies that were filmed here, which our tour guide wouldn't stop talking about. There were many interesting cave formations, but our tour guide did not talk enough about them. I am not usually a complainer, but for how much the cave costs and for the experience, it is much better to go to Onondaga Cave instead. Onondaga is much cheaper, it was a very, very cool cave, and our tour guide was enthusiastic and informative there.
Informative and lively tour guide made the tour through the cave enjoyable for our whole family. The gift shop seemed to have something for everyone. The only negative thing I can say is that the restaurant was not serving their whole menu - they only had hot dogs, nachos, soda, and ice cream.
This place is so cool! The only thing is you have to walk through the whole tour and strollers aren't allowed so taking small babies and little kids isn't best idea if they are two and under, if you're pregnant you might want to wait until after your pegnancy. There's some steep inclines you go up for a little bit. But otherwise a great place to go see defiantly worth the price and time.
Amazing tour of underground beauty ! Great place to go to escape the heat of summer, bring a light jacket if you get chilled easy. Lots of fun for all ages , seeing another whole dimension, under the surface.
Fond memories of this place. I visited with my family right after graduating from Basic Training in Fort Leonard Wood and we loved it so much that we visited again when I left the Army four years later on my cross-country trip back home. The caves are beautiful and a must-see if you're passing through the area.
