      These caverns were pretty cool. Took a family trip recently and went to another set of caverns, and they were alright. When family came to visit we didn’t put caverns at the top of our list, but a little one was doing a report on bats, so we decided to check these caves out on our last day. It was well worth it.

      Like the other cavern, this one stank. I wish we’d gone during a less busy time, because there were some serious B.O. issues in our tour group of about thirty five. We ended up

      lingering behind to avoid the smell, and as a consequence missed much of the tour guide’s explanations.

      What we did hear was full of corny jokes, and sounded VERY rehearsed. (She does it several times a day, after all) But it went over well with the kids. We saw several bats, which were tiny, and which was VERY cool. The formations were beautiful, and they had it all lit very well. What I mean by that is there wasn’t too much lighting, just enough to highlight what they wanted us to see. They’ve got several sinkholes in ...

      • there full of fossils and bones, and that’s awesome. The kids liked seeing that. The tour was the right length. The ride down was crowded and uncomfortable. The tour guide was good, if a little distracted.

        The gift shop gets good points, since it was reasonably priced for a tourist trap. That’s to say, the things were fairly expensive, but not ridiculous. Lots of crystals and gems and those were cool. A better selection than some other tourist gift shops, as it wasn’t just a bunch of crap with the name of the caves scrawled across it.

        We arrived too late to pan for our own gems…but we’ve done gold panning before so felt it wasn’t necessary. (Panning is very boring. Only worthwhile for kids who don’t realize that the gold/gems are planted and everyone’s guaranteed one)

        Don’t bring very little kids. It’s a bit scary. Our kids were eight, and it was perfect. They were more enchanted than frightened, and they were old enough that we didn’t have to harp on them about not touching the formations. But younger….I don’t know, I wouldn’t do it. Don’t watch The Descent beforehand. That makes it very scary.

    • Don't Be Nice. Be Helpful.
