Great cave with wonderful stalactite and stalagmite structures. Had my wife and 2 boys (2 and 4) with me, and it was fun.

Everyone should come here and see the caverns at least once in their lifetime. This was my second visit here, the first being almost 30 years ago, and it was just as beautiful now as it was then.

Words do not describe this maze of caverns. You have to go see for yourself. If you love the wonders of nature, you won't be disappointed.

I guess it would depend on the line to get in, but the actual tour to walk thru the cavern was about 1 hour.
