The queues put you off but they move pretty fast and it is worth it because they are packing the customers into digestible groupings to allow easier flow through the cavern route. All in all this is a marvellous visit and well worth the time...More

We were really shocked but pleased by the size of these caverns, and had an excellent guide (Seth) to explain the history and science of it all. Would definitely recommend but it should be noted the we visited mid week in mid September- I understand...More

I visited twice during the summer on a week day and weekend. It was very busy on the weekend. I would imagine holidays such as Labr Day would also be busy. If you tend to cold, bring a jacket.
