Was pretty good if you never been in a cave. Wish there was more to see. But glad we went and saw it while we were visiting.

The cave was interesting - price was good at $8 for a self-tour. Would have been nice if we could have seen more of the cave areas that were gated / closed off. Recommend.

A little disappointing. Thought there would be more to see. But it was very interesting and there was some beautiful stalagmites and stalagtites. Only $8 to get in. It was worth it and the 1hr we spent in there. It's worth seeing.

It takes about 30 min. They give you headphones and you push buttons to activate the sound along the way.
