The Olentangy Indian Caverns are a series of caves, natural passages and rooms occupying three different levels. The caverns were formed millions of years ago by an underground river that cut through the limestone rock. They were used by the Wyandotte Indians as a refuge from the weather and from their enemies the Delaware Indians. Artifacts found in the caverns indicate that it was used by the Wyandotte as late as 1810. The Olentangy Indian Caverns are located at 1779 Home Road, Delaware, Ohio and are open seasonally for tours.Plan my day in Delaware using traveler tips and tourist information provided by Inspirock.

I went to the Olentangy Indian Caverns with a very large group. Our group experienced a guided tour through the cave and the young women leading the tour were very kind. We also went to visit the petting zoo. Wonderful experince for younger, middle ages, and older ages. I would highly recommend for a quick day of fun.
This place is awesome! I took my daughter on a whim, not knowing they had so many awesome different ways to stay entertained! You start off in the shop where they sell clothing items, toys and other trinkets, and it is also where you pay for any of the activities you'll want to partake in that day. The caverns are $9.95 for adults and $6.95 for kids 2-12 yrs old. The experience is amazing unless you are claustrophobic - steer clear if you are, being in underground caves will definitely exacerbate that diagnosis. The petting zoo is $3 per person and includes sheep, lamb, mini cows and even a very friendly deer. The animals are sweet as can be, the worst thing they'll do is lick your hand if you put it out to them. Within the petting zoo grounds, there's some play equipment that my daughter loved, including a huge tube slide. Next, they have a mini putt putt course that also costs $3 per person. We didn't play the course when we went. There are also a few free activities like corn hole, a big wooden tic tac toe board, a climbing wall (kid size) and a playground. All in all, it was an awesome experience and I can't wait to go back again!
