We had just come from Mammoth Caves and Diamond Caverns in Kentucky. Not only was this tour cheaper, but my family thought it was much more impressive. Very enjoyable and a must stop if you are in the area!

We had an awesome time here on a Sunday. The caves 240 feet underground. The tour was well worth the price.

This is an absolute masterpiece of a cave, with seemingly endless formations, easy walking paths, and ample lighting. And it's just a short elevator ride down, and a short bus ride back to the welcome center.

The trip down in the elevator is the only part I didn't thoroughly enjoy. The cave is huge and majestic, well lighted, great for photos. The guided tour is only an hour so it is a bit rushed but still very worthwhile.

I would certainly not take small children on the longer tour. It is over an hour long and there are dangerous areas where they need constant supervision. I would recommend the dripstone tour at their ages.
