  • We visited here today. The way up was beautifully snow covered. The caves were very interesting and a fun excursion. Definitely worth it. Guide was nice and helpful.

Well, they are if you try to generate excitement by playing the 2001 Odyssey theme while lighting up the ice formations in blue, purple, and pink. And who could not like Boris the animatronic Cave Bear??? To top it off, they ended the tour with the Dracula organ music for a very cheesy finale, with the piece de resistance of ice having a very unfortunate shape (you’ve been warned).
