This cave is a one of a kind due to the fact guests get to ride thru it instead of walking. Beautiful formations abound and the history of the cave is very interesting.

Nice way to see a cavern for families with young children. You get a ride and see the cavern without having to worry about slipping or carrying small children.

We brought my brother and nephew in July of 2017. My brother lives in Germany and comes home every few years and we are always taking them for day excursions, this was one of our favorites! We lived the tour, and the vintage vehicles .

No. I don't think so. Best to ask owners. it's a privately owned cave. Really nice. if your dog does have to stay in the car they have a very shady in the parking lot.

The tour is around 45 min., but one of the best tours I've ever been on. The guide is very informative with the history and friendly.
