It was ok. Kind of a boring cave. Your tour is suppose to last for 90 minutes. You spend 15 minutes walking up a trail to the cave, and you are exposed to the sun. So, it is hot! I wanted cool! Nowhere near 90...More

I would think so but we only did the Mark Twain cave. If you like to see caves that have bats in them then you would need to do the other cave tour as the Twain cave does not have them.
