Absolutely freaking amazing!! This was our first spelunking experience and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Just the shear size of everything and the steep drops is astounding. And when the lights go out, it's the blackest thing you'll ever see but then the light show comes on.
My wife and I took our Grandson, Connor, there today. Since it's still a little light business wise due to covid19 concerns, we were happy it wasn't real busy. There was another family of 5 with us making the 1-1/2 hour tour. Our tour guide, Justin, did a great job and did not slight us because of being a small group. He was full of information, took care of keeping us safe, and made it fun time. Highly recommend Justin if you can get him. If you've never been, I recommend Cumberland Caverns. It's an enjoyable opportunity to marvel at natural beauty and the of years it took Mother Nature to create it. Hats off to the brave explorers who discovered the caverns, explored it, and ultimately brought it to the public for their enjoyment.
The caverns are amazing! God created a beautiful place and the park has kept its beauty natural. It is a must see! Our guide, Lydia, was great. Friendly, energetic, and full of historical knowledge about the cave's discovery. There is also an interactive experience as they allow you to experience what it was like for the founder of the cave - an eye opening experience for comparison of today's time versus 100+ years ago.
What an amazing place! I did the legacy tour which was not the crawling around I expected, but more climbing over huge rock piles and boulders over and over to see various "rooms" within the cave system. Not only did it appear at first glance that there were no passages out of some of the rooms, there were all these little holes/tunnels? that looked like I could slither into that really had my imagination going. It reminded me of The Goonies, sans pirate ship. Best birthday adventure ever! Plus I got my most favorite and most comfortable sweatshirt ever from the gift shop. Definitely will return next year!
