Be careful inside the caverns as the paths are narrow and extremely slippery. This is not an activity for those with walking problems.

Visited here with family including a couple granddaughters. The caverns are a real basic historic sight but an interesting glimpse of the past. Pretty pricey for what it involves plus additional price for everything else to see or do but that's probably why it's a...More

Kids love going underground, panning for gemstones and the zoo. Go in the spring or fall when the animals are active.

We want here with kids ages 1-14 and all enjoyed it. It's a short visit but if you haven't been in caverns before it is worth seeing. Be careful on the stairs with young ones and you can't use a stroller. I would expect carrying...More

Nothing more than an overpriced tourist trap. It cost our family over $25 to walk through this mini cavern. We could have completed the round trip in 2 minutes if there were not others taking their time in front of us. It didn't even keep...More

This is a great place for caving in central Ohio. This was once the home of The Hopewell and Wyandot people. You must see council table in the cavern that was the meeting place for this ancient community. The petting zoo is fun for kids...More
