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.
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.
This is a family owned and operated cavern. The people there were very nice and made the experience even better. The caverns were beautiful and our guide told us the history of the caverns throughout the tour. Just wish the tour was a little longer for the admission price. Overall pleasant experience.
This is a perfect place to go with kids or anyone. I have a 3 year old and this was great for him because we didn't have any steps to go down or up and for me so I could enjoy the wonderful cave. It was such a cool experience to be able to drive through it!!! Well worth the money and Micheal our guide was fantastic!
This was an OK tour. If you can't climb stairs this is the place to go. If you have no restrictions then skip it. The guide was friendly but the tour was short and had liitle to offer if you have seen other caverns.
The ride-thru cave tour was great! The tour guide was very knowledgeable and answered all questions. The cave were beautiful inside! It was a great day to go!
