An easy but beautiful way to see a nicely maintained cave and its crystals

The tour is over priced and the owners are rude! The cave is basically a crack in the wall, which takes approximately 15 minutes to enter and exit. There are very few geological rock formations and those that do exist are not of any interest....More

We stopped by on our way home from the Poconos. When you walk into the store, there is an overwhelming musty smell. We almost left. The five of us had a personal tour of the cavern. It was fine. Nothing much to write about. The...More

I was more than pleased with this cave tour. Partly because of the many stalactites and stalagmites. Other caves I’ve been in did not have as many. And since water was continually dripping, I knew they were growing. No one would call this a huge...More

The tourist trap that sits atop the cave is rather annoying. Dinosaurs, pirates, a giraffe, gem mining, a gun collection, this has nothing to do with this cave. A bit pricy, and the cashier over charged me above the listed price. When I questioned it,...More

We spent about 2 hours there and that was fine - I think the tour was about 60-90 minutes and then time in the interesting gift shop/museum

No, you have to leave them at the entrance to the cavern as the walkway gets narrow in spots.

Not really, you have to duck a little in two or three spots as you walk by but for the most part it's open with no problem.
