Amazing cave tour. There were beautiful images around every turn in the path. Tour was just the right length and offered very frequent so you don't have to wait long.

These people are very rude to guests who bring children. When we brought our concerns to the front desk they refused a refund and laughed. Don't waste your time. There are better caves nearby that treat their guests far better.

A little more accessible for those worried about climbing a lot steps. Mostly incline walking. Great tour with Austin. The multi colored lighting adds a more dramatic flare! Definitely worth seeing, is equally as good as other caverns in the area.

The family went here as something to do when it was raining outside and wanted some entertainment. They took us on a 1-2 hour tour of the underground taverns and we saw some awesome sights. Here are some pictures of the displays they have.

I believe adults was $15 with local coupon for $1 off and $10 for children. There is an age break but I don't remember if it is 3 or 5.
