Get the combination ticket, it's the best value. Don't forget to pick up some food for the deer and emus. It's a fun time all around, taking about 2 hours.

4 adults killing time and it was decent. We did the combo package, so saw the cave and everything else they had to offer. A little pricey for a family for what it is, but we had fun.

My family loved this place! The cave was something totally different than what we'd done before, and the observation tower had breathtaking Texas views. The train ride and anti-gravity house were both neat additions to our tickets and well worth it. The cave itself is...More
