Who knew something in my backyard would be so amazing? My 4&7 yr old boys loved exploring. The guide was so knowledgeable. It is worth every penny and made me very proud to be from Lockport!

The cave tour, led by tour guide Ken, was very well done. Much insight was provided re: cave construction, the businesses which once utilized the power it generated, and unusual happenings/circumstances. I especially liked references to the laborers which toiled to create the cave and...More

This was a fun tour and history lesson. The tour guide was knowledgeable and funny. There is quite a bit of walking and stairs, so it might not be for everybody, but it was worth the time and expense.

This cave was different as it was full of history. The guide did very good job with explaining the history of the locks and the cave and how it was constructed. Overall a good time.

This tour was shockingly very good. Much of the success of this tour of the cave (a man-made tunnel) was because of our guide, Paige. She did an excellent job relaying the history of not just the cave but the industry based on the tunnel's...More

No, pets are not allowed. If it is a service animal I would call and double check with them to see if accommodations can be made.
