It was fun to see it. Quite unique. Easy to get to. Went to dance to a great band, but unfortunately there were several hundred people there and few in any knew how to really dance. Many young dancers who were really quite rude on the floor. People lacking dance skills often think being the wildest dancer is a good... More

Pay a modest fee and for 45 minutes a guide shows you around the place, tells you some stories about glass-making, mushrooms, gangsters, prohibition, and historic geology. They also have dances and a bar--in a cool historic underground speakeasy. I think it would be more fun to go for an event than for just a tour.

Went to Prom one year here back in High School. It was very cool. I love that it has a bar. It also has a fun feel to it when you are inside.

We attended a wedding and reception in the caves. Yes, they are caves, but no, you will not be claustrophobic! The ceilings are very high and "finished" where the event was held. The whole event was really well organized. We also got a mini tour of some of the other caves (also very high ceilings) which was super fun and... More

We had read about the cave tours and decided to check it out. It was fun and interesting to think about how unique the caves are and the historical relevance that they were used as a speakeasy during prohibition. Not sure if the stories the guide tells are factual, but if not they were very entertaining. Well worth the $6.00... More

We had time to kill and saw a brief mention of this place. Went ahead and drove over and did the tour. Glad we did. Learned some new things about the area.

The caves were interesting. It is something different to do and the history of the place is pretty interesting.

A nice tour with a 1930's "gangster" explaining the history of these unusual caves. Easy stroll and a fun narration. Esp good for kids

I had wanted to tour the caves and finally got the chance. I went with a group of seniors. No steps or stairs to deal with but it is dark in the caves. Our tour guide was dressed in period dress as a gal from the mob era. She was terrific! Brought history to life.
