Owner description: Discover the timeless beauty of Fantastic Caverns, one of the earth's rarest treasures. There are only four of its' kind in the entire world, and only one in North America. Here, you'll discover one of the world's most beautiful natural wonders; giant columns stretching from floor to ceiling, delicate soda straws glistening with minerals, tiny cave pearls hidden in crystal-clear water. And best of all, you'll see it close-up from the comfort of a Jeep-drawn tram!

“Lots of fun”
Reviewed 4 June 2014

A guided tour that is really a lot of fun and even educational. I lived in Springfield for 4 years and cannot believe I never toured the cave during that period. Great way to spend part of the day.

“Pretty Cool”
Reviewed 3 June 2014

A fun guided tour that you enjoy from a jeep drawn tram. The cave is certainly very impressive and well worth the visit.

“Fantastic Caverns was indeed a fantastic attraction.”
Reviewed 29 May 2014

I had been to Springfield many times, but did not have time to check out the caverns. My sister and I were visiting our Nephew for his graduation and decided to take him and our niece to see the caverns. I trip was informative and awe-inspiring. I recommend this attraction. The only cavern attraction available by jeep and wagon.

“Must see!”
Reviewed 28 May 2014

If you want to see whats going on you simply must go underground! These caverns are besutiful snd still natural not glitzed up like so many touristy caves. You tide through but they take plenty of time so you can really see it. Everyone is downhome friendly. Ask about teacher discounts!
