  • We enjoyed our visit to this cavern. It was a brief walk through the cavern and the lights (for Christmas) and the Christmas music made it a beautiful experience. It was raining the night we were...  more »
  • We have visited many times since having kids. They always love it! I enjoy it as well. We've been to the Halloween event and other events. Just love it!  more »
  • Fascinating cave! Very friendly owners and staff. Awesome idea to show movies there. We enjoyed the Back to the Future showing. Great idea!
  • Went to the benefit/ grand re-opening and watched "The Goonies" with the kids in the cave and had a blast. Hope they do another movie day there soon. This is not a very big cave but the people there are caring and have a lot of heart. One man has been studying and saving the bats of the area for 40 years! Great for a 1st cave experience for people of all ages, especially little ones. And it's free. Donations are gladly accepted and are needed to keep it going. Do what you can but definitely worth a stop... it's great on a hot day because the temperature is always around 56-58 degrees!!!
