We went through with our family on Saturday of Mother's Day weekend around 4pm. There was a line out the door waiting to get into the caverns and we had arrived a little later than we expected. We had originally planned to purchase our tickets online but decided to wait until we got to the caverns. I guess it's my fault for not reading the sign clearly that said the price for the adult and the children. My daughter is 8 and my son is 4 and I asked for 2 adult and 2 child tickets. It is pretty clear that my son does not look 6 years old but they still charged me a child's ticket anyway. I didn't realize it until we were in line to go into the caverns and decided that we hadn't been since 2001 anyway so there was my "donation" to the caverns.
I was not impressed at all with our tour guide, Jackson. He said he was new but it seemed to appear that he missed a lot of important points regarding the caverns. I remember back in 2001 they pointed out a fault line in which I asked him about after the tour and he said he didn't know but that there "probably was one" down in the caverns. The tour felt rushed and there were a lot of people that kept staying back to take pictures and pretty much start their own personal tour of the caverns. I was really surprised as how many adults didn't seem to care what the guide was saying as they were leaning up against the formations and touching them with their hands to hold them up while standing. Our tour guide never said a word to them, although he said at the beginning not to touch the rock.
It is a beautiful place to see. The car museum is pretty impressive also even though I'm not into cars much. It's just neat to see what they have there in the museum. Was a nice family visit but we're good again for several years before we go back. The lady who took our money for the tickets was bored and would rather text on her cell phone between breaks in customers rather than give good customer service.
