However it turned out to be the highlight of our trip. The kids could not stop talking about it. It was a... More

This is a great trip especially if you have middle school aged kids so that they can do a report on it for some extra credit at school. Take a windbreaker because it is cool inside.

What a great experience – we broke the rules and went round three or four times so that we could really appreciate everything. The pathways are well marked and lit so that safety is not an issue particularly when you are looking everywhere but where you are putting your feet. The gift shop/ mini museum has some very interesting artifacts... More

We have been to several different caverns and this one was really nice. It is a self guided tour so you can really take your time and look around. It is also much less commercialized then say Ruby Falls or the like. Great way to spend a few hours!

I did the Wild Cave Tour with my two daughters, both in their 20's . This was a five star adventure, we'll never forget. So if your adventurous and don't mind getting dirty, this is a must do adventure. With your hard hats on and only the light on your hat guiding you, your adventure begins. It doesn't take long...

I love caving. Your heart gets to pumping, but you beat the heat because it's a comfortable 55 degrees most of the time. The formations are of course the highlights and who doesn't love Smurf Village in this one? It's gorgeous. the various animals on the property give the place a very homey feel. the only thing that would make... More

The owners Steve and Logan took great care of us - Steve even lead the tour and kept it fun and interesting for everyone - scouts and... More

This is a self-guided tour, as they state. There are descriptive signs along the route that provide adequate information. Scenery inside the cavern was interesting and beautiful. More lighting would have been nice, and it appears a lot of the spotlights were not working or not turned on. The pathway is excellent, but not for the very young or those... More

Had a great time caving at Lost World Caverns. Our guide Steve was friendly, helpful with a good sense of humor, which is always a plus. During caving, snacks and water were provided. Afterwards, the team provided us with a full meal of chicken sandwiches, macaroni salad, potato salad, with Doritos, cookies and drinks to supplement. Can't do better than... More

The Lost World Caverns is a great underground adventure taking about 45 minutes as it is a self guided tour so you can go at your own pace.Surprisingly they were not discovered until 1942.The drop is about 120 feet but you will not feel it until you take the steps back up at the end of the visit. The constant... More
