  • The main tour is good for taking pictures, good lighting, paved walk ways and rails to hold onto. If you want something a little more exciting and a lot more authentic go for the candlelight tour. Literal candle lights and in an area where footing isn't nearly as good for some of the stretch. They also have overnight and crawling tours. If you've been excited about the idea of spelunking without the desire to go all out or the risk of death this is what you want to do!
  • We are not terribly adventurous so we didn't try the rides, but people seemed to enjoy them. My kids climbed on the Skywalker and liked it. My husband and I enjoyed the cave tour. Our guide was entertaining and told about other options for people who wanted to explore more caves. We did the 30 minute tour which included a lot of information and plenty of cave experience for me. There were some young children in our tour group who did well, but it was a little difficult for one of the seniors who with us. There were quite a few stairs and one very narrow and winding staircase. I do recommend visiting and doing the tour. I'd do it again.
  • Take the guided tour and get the history of the caves and those brave souls who first crawled miles through them. We had fun exploring around half an hour in the caves, the guide was enthusiastic and gave us a lot of interesting facts. Fascinating would be an understatement. Nice formations of stalagmites and stalactites and some highly interesting structures. Not strenuous. Went on the Discovery Tour with in early March.
  • Been coming here for so long. It’s so great and it’s a new experience every time. The kids and family love it! Everything from the tour guide to the scenic history and environment is phenomenal. John, our most recent tour guide is absolutely incredible as well. Certainly added to the fun. Thanks!
  • We had a good time here. Moderately priced ($78) for 3 adults and 1 kid.. My husband and I have done the tour before so today we let the kids do the tour while we enjoyed the beautiful view out on the observation deck. They have other activities on site for an added cost (not too outrageous). We haven't tried them yet but they look like a lot of fun.
