What a great day spent exploring with my husband. The wait time was 15 minutes or so and the bathrooms were clean! On our tour the young guide had a nice amount of knowledge and a good sense of humor. The walk was easy on the way down and uphill on the way back. We only did the basic tour... More

I expected the caverns to have stalactites and stalagmites but it didn't so the interest was more in the history. Our guide was nice and had the history memorized, but it would be helpful if he went to a class for giving presentations naturally.

This is the first dry cave that I've ever visited, so that means no lakes, stalagmites, or stalactites. It was still very interesting and they do a great light show set to music. They also offer much more challenging opportunities for experienced cavers.

My fiancé and I visited Laurel Caverns this fall, and participated in the 1hr tour. Although it was a good experience to have, the whole thing felt outdated and tacky. Our tour guide made bad jokes the whole tour (which no one in the group appreciated considering the total silence throughout) and she spoke extremely fast, oftentimes cutting off words... More

This was a very fun and informative tour. Our tour guide "Madison" was very good. The cave was interesting as it didn't have stalagmites or stalactites. It was just the right length of time.

I have visited many caves and this ranked as average. As a 66 yr old the steep walk was hard as well as areas with no railings to hold onto. The guide and sights were nice.

Not like other caverns, there are no stalagmites or stalactites but very interesting. There are several different levels of exploration to choose from. We did the Family Tour and it was great.

I went here on my Honeymoon, while staying at The Summit Inn. It was one of my favorite parts of the trip. Even though there aren't really any limestone formations, (at least not that I saw in the general tour), it's still a really cool cave. Even my husband liked it. Definitely worth checking out if you are in the... More
