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.

What a rip off. Just another hillbilly tourist trap. If you're on vacation in this area and have disposable cash I highly recommend that you spend it somewhere else where you will get more bang for your buck, this attraction is definitely a dud. This Cavern is so small I could have walked through it faster than they drove through it. Now the one at Silver Dollar City that is where you need a ride, that's an hour long walk there, but well worth it. It's not only a large Cavern but it's included with the price of admission to Silver Dollar.

This cave was so cool! It was worth the drive! Fantastic Cavern needs to advertise that's it's handicapped accessible all the way to the tram. The steep walkways are way to steep to walk with a walker and had I known it was power chair accessible I could have been safer and used my chair instead of trying to walk with a walker down the steep driveway and walkways. Please update so others will know. It's a wonderful tour and I learned a lot.

Just a short drive from our hotel. Enjoyed this tour much more than Ruby Falls. Gift shop was well stocked, and not expensive. Since the cavern is about 60 degrees, we all wore light jackets. Gift shop had jackets that were reasonably priced. If you are in the area, this is one attraction that you don’t want to miss. Even the youngest kids enjoyed themselves.

This place was amazing. The tour took about an hour. Our tour guide was funny and had all sorts of stories to tell us along with the history of the cave. All 4 of our kids range from ages 7 to 13 and were fascinated the whole time. Amazing place. Definently worth the money!!

Would have given it 4 stars but the people at the front desk specifically Casey was either having a bad day or just has a nasty attitude. Right off the bat I was about to reconsider giving them my money because if that’s a representation of what we have to expect from their product forget it. Speaking of money, feels quite overpriced for what you get which is about a 50 minute tour. With those things aside, it was actually a decent experience. Our tour guide, Kyle, was super friendly and knowledgeable. The cave was quite impressive and the ride through it was a plus.
