Had a great visit. It was rainy at the lake so we decided to go to bridal cave. A little pricy but worth it. Our tour guide Lindsey was informative and fun! About half way thru you think you are going to be done-as with most cave and cavern tours-but there was more! Great way to spend a rainy am.... More

Bridal Cave is everything you ever dreamed of seeing! The tour guide was exceptional. Very informative and gave us time to take great pics and answer questions. A must see when visiting Lake of The Ozarks.

Not a super long tour, about 1 hour, a few tight spots to navigate, some stairs, but not too many, great formations inside, some very unique. If you love caves, you will enjoy this one. Nice gift shop. Staff very friendly, and the price was reasonable.

I'm not so keen on close spaces so I was unsure about this attraction but it is so cool inside, I am glad we went. The rooms inside are fairly large. Air is a bit stuffy but the scenery is simply amazing. Well worth the visit.

A live cave of stalagmites and stalactites, citrine, calcite, onyx, manganese and more. You can see the cave growing up close. A well paced tour, good zonal lighting, and Abby was a good tour guide. Must do for families, and nature lovers

We stopped in with nothing to loose. We had a monster group of 16 chalked full of teenagers. This is a very interesting excursion, that is not something you see everyday. Lots of cool views, lots of neat turns, with something new around every corner. My draw backs are simple, I felt it was a bit pricey for what we... More
