This is a great little adventure just north of Springfield. I have been there many times over the past 30 years - as a child and as a mother with my own children. I am looking forward to taking my grandchildren someday. It is an amazing, beautiful, natural wonder and the operators have worked hard to have as little impact... More

I am glad that we rode through the cave in a cart pulled trailer. It is spooky, very dark, ominous, but exciting. Great guide information and it was worth the price. Recommended to see at least once in your life.

Casey is a great guide. She knows the history and keeps everyone engaged. The tour was very interesting and well worth stopping in. The gift shop has very unique items that you won't find anywhere else.

She interacted with us and made us laugh. She knew her cave but delivered it with aplomb. She made it interesting for the little kids to the big kids... More

My wife is handicapped and she always wanted to be inside a cavern. For her this was the chance of a lifetime! They treated us very nicely, with early seating in their Jeep drawn touring trailer, and she had a wonderful time in the cavern. No walking needed in the cavern, gentle ramps - not stairs when boarding, and a... More

It was really fun and educational and I feel beautiful inside everyone should go. It was easy to find right outside of downtown since you don't have to walk it's very nice to have the trolley ride to anybody could go.
