This is a spelunkers dream, without the equipment. Has lots of history of the cave and area surrounding. Great views in the valley outside the cave. The best part is when they turn the lights off and you truly learn about "cave dark."

Had a great time. Worth the price as the tour is a good length and the guide was exceptional. It was very easy to find and there were a ton of other attractions. A whole day could be spent there.

The gift center, dining area and little areas outside the cave are ADA accessible but the cave itself is not. There are parts that are really narrow and some areas with steep stairs.

The Via Ferrata Canyon Tour is a combination of hiking and rock climbing, and lasts about 2 hours. There are no zip lines in the course at this time. The only zip line we have is the Bat-a-Pult Zip Line.
