Amazing geological wonders! Good for kids and adults alike. The tour does include some ups and downs. So, if you have troubles walking, this tour may not be for you. We took tons of pictures, and were lucky enough to enjoy a live performance of the stalactite organ.

Go for the actual caverns - they are mind blowing. But don't expect much else. Tour guide was average. Private owners cheesed the place out with tacky souvenir shops, toy store, elevator music piped outside. One other highlight - the car museum. FYI - If you have a GIANT (grocery store) card, entrance is discounted.

This was my and my boyfriend's first time visiting caverns. We enjoyed it. This one of the things where a photo can never do itjustice.

I remember going through the Caverns when I was about 8 yrs old. And although grown now, it was still exciting to walk through it again. Brought back so many great childhood memories.

We have boys ages 10 and 7. We enjoyed our visit and information into the caverns! Also the history and science information to go with it. The ticket price is a little steep for my liking, but it does come with a visit to the Transportation and History museum.

We visited the Caverns with our 3 year old, who rode in her stroller most of the time. There are steps at the entrance and exit of the cavern, but otherwise it is very stroller-friendly. Although we personally didn't find the tour guide's spiel all that interesting, we did very much enjoy our walk through the caverns, which are enormous,... More

This was a great stop for us. Get there early before it gets crowded. Worth the fee. Deep caverns and the organ at the very bottom are fascinating

The cave was about a mile of walking with plenty to see. The tour guide was informative and personable as well as accommodating to our family with 2 toddlers. On the day we went we were not allowed to take the self-paced audio tour which might have been better for our little one's attention spans, but the tour guide understood... More

Very nice cavern to visit. If you have little kids they may get bored and cause havoc. Good to visit with friends and sig other and friends from out of town who are into outdoors. Unlike other caverns this one is warm so don't wear big jackets.
