Spectacular formations inside. The open space is hard to describe. Easy walk on wide concrete path. I love caves and everyone is different.

What a incredible experience this was! We've been in caves before but this place is truly enormous. It's hard to describe and photos don't do it justice. Just go you won't regret it. The tour guide was very knowledgeable and full of corny cave jokes. It's cool inside but a decent sweatshirt or light jacket should be more than enough. The walk is slow paced with only a few slightly steep inclines. Several elderly people on our tour had no issues.
Great experience. Our tour guide gave us lots of experience and was well informed. Alex, "root beer", really helped bring the whole experience together. Super easy to navigate to, the signs show you exactly where you need to go. My wife and I chose to call ahead but talking to other people who came same time as us, it isn't always required to make a reservation. As the website says the hills can be steep so I wouldn't recommend wheelchairs but is super kid friendly. The lighting isn't as bright as the photos make it seem to be but it is still excellently well lit and my wife and I had no issues seeing where we were going. It is a guided only experience so make sure you plan around guide times.
