    If a 10 was available I would give this place a 10. I had my 7 year old Reese with me on this 10 day Kentucky tour and this was one of my stops. I cannot rave enough about this place. I fell in love with the cave itself. It was so beautiful I wanted to go back a second time. It was probably the tightest cave I have toured which made it feel less touristy. Once you finished the tour you were set free in the Outback (Kangaroos). I could not believe the beautiful property and all that it had to offer. Not only could you go underground and see the beauty but once uptop they offer close encounters with the Lorikeets, the kangaroos, the sheep, the cows, and the other misc animals on property. They have set this place up to allow you to meander the trails through the woods or go right into the barns with the livestock. Nothing was off limits and you could repeat a visit you liked (such as the lorikeets or kangaroos). Any age and you will be in love just as we were. A definite GO BACK AGAIN PLACE!!!!!!!!!!

    Ok this is a catch all place. There are hiking trails and farm animals and cave tours. This place has it all and it definitely worth the addmission price. There are groupon and other coupons available so look for them, This is a nature persons paradise and you get to interact with all of the wildlife. The cave was one of the best I have been in. Very tight and very picturesque. This will be a repeat visit not only for the CAVE but for the trails and the close encounters with the animals.
