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.
I enjoyed learning about the on going research and the history of fantastic caverns. The tour guide was knowledgeable and the history of the cave and did his best to answer any questions. I really enjoyed seeing what the initial explorers of the cave used to illuminate their way. The prices in gift shop were very reasonable as well and I normally don't make gift shop purchases.
$25.00 a person seemed kind of steep for the length of the tour. We were the last tour of the day and it seemed like they just wanted to get it over with. Like all caverns and caves it was interesting. I didn't like that they take your picture with a group of strangers inside the cavern and then try to sell it to you. It was awkward saying no. The grounds were well kept and the displays nicely done. The old jeeps they've used in the past for tours were on display and that was interesting. The tour guide was knowledgeable.
Awesome Jeep guided tour is 1 of only 4 in the WORLD! Must see & John our tour guide was incredibly knowledgeable considering he just started this retirement job this yr! Awesome souvenir shop, too
Loved this place. I would suggest stopping by if you can. It's a great tour and you will get tons of amazingly beautiful pictures.
It was warmer in the cave then it was outside. Fun, being able to ride a trailer through the Caverns. Really neat.
