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. ItÂ 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.Â Wise stewardship preserves this natural wonder for your children and grandchildren for decades to come.
This tour was interesting and fun. The staff was very friendly and helpful. It was a little expensive but the money goes to help maintain the 1000 acres that the caverns actually run under. This would be a good place for children.
Drove 2 1/2 hours from Kansas City, Missouri as my family and I were looking forward to visiting these caves. Arrived and was rudely met by the lady taking my money. This employee needs to either learn to properly greet paying customers with some type of personality or find a job where she does not have interaction with the general public. After paying $75.93 for 3 people we went on the tour which was definitely not worth the money. I believe this company lures those by heavy advertising. I would almost bet there were no less than 25 billboards from Kansas City to Springfield. The female tour guide was enthusiastic and knowledgeable about the history of this cave. The adventure that was worth while about this day trip was the lunch at Lamberts. At the end of the tour, which lasts approximately 45 minutes, they hand you a group photo of all who toured within your group that you can keep if you pay an additional $12. I can tell you this was not worth the time or money.
I've been here twice. I went back a second time because I was about 12 when we first went and I didn't really remember anything. I loved going. The whole story behind the cavern is interesting. It is beautiful in the cave. It is expensive, but worth it.
The cave experience was neat and usual. The staff in the gift shop/waiting area were kind of rude. The guide was awesome. It is worth a visit.
Nice Staff. Clean Facility. Very informational and cave was well lit. Not as long as I had expected but it was worth the drive from Branson Mo to spend time with family looking at what God can even do underground.
