A highlight of the Silver Dollar City theme park, this constantly evolving wet limestone cave under the Ozark Mountains, dating back to the 1500s, provides a one-hour tour of fascinating rooms and passageways. The cave's entryway is the largest in the U.S.

Do not miss this! Probably the best thing at Silver Dollar City! Lots of history and a fun exciting work out! About an hour long tour. If your claustrophobic or can’t go up or down 100’s of flights of stairs this is not for you.

Okay before I ended up in a wheel chair, this was one of my favorite caves. It is worth the entry to Silver Dollar City. Stop by the bakery on your way out.

Quite an interesting tour hourly just inside Silver Dollar City. It actually is what started the theme park. Tours depart about every hour with groups of no more than 60. You simply queue up at the entrance just inside the gift shop once you enter...More
