Onyx Cave is a 30 minute tour with many formations and few stairs. Tours are led by experienced, knowledgeable guides and are appropriate for the whole family. The cave stays a cool comfortable 60 degrees year-round, a welcome break from the summer heat. Also photography is allowed on our tours, so bring your camera and capture the natural beauty of the cave.

Stopped by at 3:50 and they turned the open sign off as we got out of our cars. Apparently they close at 4:00 this time of year. Turned down a paying family of 6. Probably won’t be in business much longer. Looks run down.

This cave is part of the Kentucky Down Under Adventure Park. The cave itself is very unique and beautiful. Our guide was very informative. We had plenty of time to snap a few photos!

Much smaller operation than the National Park and Diamond Caverns. Operates frequently, enthusiastic guide, not expensive and great gift shop.

Depends on the child. My 6 yr old loved it. It is a short tour, but the child has to be able to understand not to touch!
