I have a house in the area and drink my coffee near secret caverns. But today I decided to go inside. The lobby was freezing, but once we paid our entrance fee (cheaper than the competitor up the road) we walked down 100 stairs into...More

We visited Secret Caverns after a trip to Howe. Had not been to Howe in over 40 years, and it seemed more touristy than ever. I had never been to Secret before, and the billboards along the way made it seem interesting. Not as polished...More

Secret Caverns has always been my favorite local cavern. Unlike others in the area, they don't over-market themselves and stay true to just providing a good time for their guests. The last time we went, we were paired with another couple using a service dog....More

Visited Secret Caverns somewhat on a whim after we had planned a day trip to Howe Caverns. We had finished up at Howe, saw the signs and figured why not? The best comparison I could give you is that Howe Caverns is a well-oiled tourism...More

it's about $18 for adults and if you go to their web site their is a $2 off coupon. the tour is 45 minutes but isn't as fancy as Howe's cavern. tours head down about every 20 minutes.
