I came here with a family reunion and it was great fun for everyone involved. We even got a private tour after-hours from RJ. The caves are awesome with cool lighting, and the waterfall is just magnificent!

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.
