  • A delightful day out - The Cave entrance is guarded by dinosaurs st the entrance which were an instant hit before we even got inside. Our boys loved wearing the headlights and exploring the different areas. The caves were not as large as we imaged but still very interesting for kids of all ages. The shop also provided an opportunity to purchase toys and treasures (of all prices) to take home as a reminder. Thank you! - will visit again!
  • What an amazing place to visit! Very interesting and some truly uniquely beautiful items to buy in the gift shop after your tour. Great atraraction!
