About Us:
Fantastic Caverns - America's Only Ride -Through Cave - A small, family owned business, it was discovered in 1862 by an Ozarks farmer - or more precisely, by his dog, who crawled through an entrance. It  Jeep at Fantastic Caverns - Springfield, Missouri USAwasn't until five years later that the first exploration took place: 12 women from Springfield, answering a newspaper ad seeking explorers, ventured into the cave. Their names remain on a cave wall today.

Because the beauty of Fantastic Caverns is vulnerable, the Cave is toured in jeep-drawn trams. Since you ride all of the way through, you experience the magnitude, the stillness, and the splendor of Fantastic Caverns while preserving its natural features.  Wise stewardship preserves this natural wonder for your children and grandchildren for decades to come.

We were on vacation visiting, the shop was very friendly & great souvenirs all reasonably priced! We went through the cave & it was the best cave experience ive been to! Riding in the car was very fun & I enjoyed not having to walk all the way through. The story & history is amazing & I would definitely go again & again!

Awesome place to visit! The ride through the cave was so neat! There were a few spots I had to close my eyes and pray 😱 but I got through it lol. Staff was great and explained lots of things throughout the tour. My 9 year old son was really amazed with the cave. The gift shop was also really nice. Definitely a great place to visit!

A great place to take family and friends from out of town to introduce them to local history. This cave was explored by a small group of women who only had candles for lighting. It is a tram ride tour and the wait time is very short. Prices are reasonable.

Totally pet friendly! Wonderful time. We brought our cat, Simpycat and our dog. MY CAT LOVED IT! The staff was incredible and we had a great time. Well worth 25 bucks a seat!

This place was amazing! (And worth every penny in my opinion) It was only about 3 miles off of I-44. The Jeep tour was about an hour and the sights and history of the cave just make you say “WOW!” The only ride through cave tour in the U.S. and 1 of only 4 in the World! I would recommend to everyone, and if I find myself anywhere near it again in the future, I will definitely visit again!!
