Great way to see a cave without the worries of slipping and falling or a long hike, if you're not physically fit! Fun tour!

My Husband and I visited Fantastic Caverns while I was on a business trip in Springfield and it was beautiful. The guide who drove our wagon was very knowledgeable and entertaining. We were able to see a couple of small bats which he referred to as the furry chicken nugget bat because of their size.

We had a great time on our trip and our guide was super smart about the formations as well as the history of the cave! I believe her name was Mandy she was the curly red head girl. We were very impressed with the overall hospitality with all of the staff!! Thank you for the great experience!!

Our family has been to walk in caves before in South Dakota but we loved the concept of riding through a cave! That was a first for all of us. Amazing facts and information given to us by our tour guide and great customer service by employee's. The cave is truly amazing and worth visiting!

We went during spring break after my son kept seeing the billboards between Springfield and Branson. Our whole family had a nice time. Everyone was helpful and pleasant. We enjoyed our experience in the cave and on the hiking trail.

Let me say this isn't the most fabulous cave I've ever been in, but it is definitely a unique opportunity. There are only 4 ride through caves in the world with this one being the only one in the U.S. So I think that in itself makes it worth the trip. Out kids are fairly young and they still had... More
