Touring the Marvel Cave turned out to be our favorite part of Silver Dollar City, if not one of the highlights of our Branson trip! You get plenty of warning....lots and lots of steps, some very steep, dim lighting, narrow areas, and wet floors. (and yes, our legs were sore the next day!) It was worth it though! Our guide...

The Great Room is incredible. The guide was very informative and funny. He told us that they could fit the Statue of Liberty in the Great Room and I believe it This was a wonderful cave and our entire family enjoyed the tour. Word of warning the Photographers helper is incredible rude. We went on Oct. 2nd 2016. We would... More

This cave is located inside of Silver Dollar City. It was an interesting cave, and our tour guide was very friendly and knowledgeable about the history of the cave. This cave has several hundred steps getting down into the cave, and throughout the cave. Therefore you should be in good shape, and wear good shoes. And as the guide says:... More

The cave was not an easy going trip. Make sure to where tennis shoes. The floors were wet and there are narrow spots and MANYsteps.

I have been to many caves mostly in the East. Smoky Mountains, mammoth cave Kentucky, and so on. This cave is very different and unique.You do have to pay to get into silver dollar city which was definitely a bonus. Silver dollar city is amazing but expensive. The cave is free or you can pay extra for a lantern tour.... More

Beautiful cave but listen to the advise the guide gives. There are many, many steps, narrow walk ways and bats flying around. Not for everyone for sure

This cave really is a marvel to tour. It was the original attraction that became Silver Dollar City. You need to plan your cave tour when you first arrive (you don't need to do it first, but it's a good idea to get a tour time to minimize wait time.)

The cave is free to all that go to Silver Dollar City. The tour is a walking one in and thru. You do ride a train out of the cave. The history of the cave was very interesting. A true gem for SDC.
