What a great day!

I recently visited the cave with a few of my friends and had Savannah as my tour guide. She was so fun and energetic. She made the tour very enjoyable!

We took two of our grandsons and had fun and a educational time at the same time. All four of us did the zip line there and this was my 11 year olds first zip line. He loved it. The cave was awesome to learn every thing about the cave.

Been to many caves and liked how this cave had a warmer constant temperature. It's hard to pay attention and look around when you're cold. Liked the larger areas for so you could hear the guide. Colin was an awesome guide and reall5showed passion for the history of the cave and area. Reasonably priced at $16 for cave tour and... More

The workers at the cave were very friendly. All the tour guides made sure they could accommodate everyone. Was very family friendly, kids of all ages would enjoy. Learned a lot about the caves. But if you are looking to say very cheep I would look into other caves.

Zipline last abou 1 min 30 secs, and other is about 5 mins. Cost us about $50 for 2 adults and a 10 year old. Facility was nice,... More

This is the 2nd time I've been here and it's amazing. It takes about an hour and you end up over 100' below the surface at one point. Our tour guide was Jack and he was really good. There are some fairly tight sections, so if you're at all claustrophobic, I wouldn't recommend it. There are also a decent amount... More

The cave is good, but they also have a 7D Laser theater. They have 3 different scenerios in which you "shoot the bad guys". It is really fun and realistic. They also have a "zip line" that you can ride. They are in the process of building a roller coaster. You do not have to go through the cave to... More

Was a neat cave, the tour guide was very informative. NOT a good tour for the weak, youngest, old or frail. Lots of tight spaces, steps etc.

We have been to the Black Hills many times and have missed this wonderful place until now. I wanted a place the whole family could spelunk and this was the place. The general cave tour showed the beauty of the cave and then the spelunking was an experience our teenagers will never forget. Our tour guide was wonderful and patient... More
