Marvel Cave is what started it all - early on tourists paid something like a dime to tour. The cave is now part of Silver Dollar City and included in your ticket price. This is an interesting cave tour but not for anyone who suffers from claustrophobia. Entrance is in shop right as you enter the park so be aware... More

I have been there many times over the year and always enjoy the trip. It is a pretty good hike with a lot of stairs going down. A tram bring everyone back up the hill. Definitely a don't miss if you are interested in caves.

It was absolutely amazing to descend into this beautiful cave and explore its underground wonders. Our guide had lots of great knowledge and interesting stories/legends about the cave itself.

Visited the cave many times when I go to Silver Dollar City. Takes about 45 minutes. Well kept. Went there the first time in the 1950's. Lots of steps down but a ride back up!!! Worth it.

We love to tour caves/caverns whenever the opportunity presents itself. This one does not make our top 10 but is still interesting. BEWARE it has 750 stairs (mostly uneven) that you must climb to view. If you have only one day at SDC, I would skip this due to the amount of time It can take to complete between the... More

The whole family really enjoyed the cave tour. really nice break on a hot day @silver dollar city. The kids and us thought it was beautiful. There are a lot of steps so if you don't like steps or enclosed spaces you might pass.

This is an interesting cave to explore and you can cool off in a hurry when it's 100-deg plus outside!

Prepare to walk steps! There are many steps, and you travel a great distance underground. The tour is included with your Silver Dollar City admission.
