Our theatrical guide was very entertaining and talked a mile a minute as he presented all the information about the caverns, bats, and the “danger” of touching the walls. Since it stays cool all year ‘round this is a great place to go on a...More

The Caverns are a neat experience. It's a good inexpensive way to enjoy all that Linville has to offer. It's not every day that you get to go into the side of a Mountain.

Took our kids, 11 and 16, to the walk through cavern. Very cool experience. Very knowledgeable guide but moved us through too fast to really look. Still worth the trip. Cute gift shop as well.

Great pit stop, especially in the July heat. Cave temps stay in the 50’s year round. Nostalgic stop - families have been coming here since the 1930’s.

I definitely recommend wearing a hat if you have one - the constant dripping - especially after a rainy night - can get to you. It kept hitting me in the eye and splashing my glasses. Besides this - it was a good tour. Our...More

Hi Linda. First of all, weighing 250+ pounds is not that big. Second, rather than people guessing about this topic, I would directly email Linville Caverns (or call them) using the following "Contact Us" information. But I... More
