We spent the day at Rush Mountain Adventure Park/Rushmore Cave last weekend with our 3 kids (13, 10 and 7). We all had a blast riding the new roller coaster, going on the zip line, experiencing the 7D "ride" and going on the cave tour. Our favorite thing was the roller coaster! You can go as fast or as slow... More

Is like 15 min from Mt. Rushmore. The tour take approx 1 hour and starts at 10am. Is an awesome experience and a must. If you have kids don’t worry they can easy be fun and save here. They also have a adventure tour and the space is narrow. Ask for this if you are interested and have fun!

After not getting in on the 10am cave tour at Jewel Cave, We were directed to seek out Rushmore Cave by a traffic worker at Crazy Horse Memorial. Glad we did! Nicely run small business who has added other attractions/rides to the original cave attraction. Clean, safe & friendly operation. Informative cave tour brought us deep into the caverns of... More

The zip line ride was great. This attraction is located in a rural area with a good scenic view. Mount Rushmore is close by as well. The Rushmore caves is a great family experience with the caves and other attractions for the family to do together.

I really enjoyed the tour of the cave; the tour guide was funny and charismatic and the views inside the cave were awesome! You can also purchase tickets for the rides available on site as well. They have a small alpine coaster, a zip line, and some kind of interactive movie (not sure on what that one was as we... More

The cave was pretty cool. The kids doing the tour were very energetic and kept it interesting. The roller coaster was awesome! We have young kids and it was so fun taking them on it. This was one of the best stops of our trip.

We came to South Dakota to see Mt. Rushmore. This place topped Mt. Rushmore by far. The cave tour was amazing and the guide was very informative, with a great sense of humor. Thankfully the wait wasn't too long for the tour, although we came during peak hours. Great gift shop to browse through while waiting. Zipline was also good,... More
