A visit to the Olentangy Indian Caverns can give you an experience of a lifetime. It is actually a series of ancient caves, rooms, and passages that were made through limestone rocks. According to the archaeologists, these underground caves used to be the safe shelter of the Wyandotte Indians. They used to take refuge in these hidden zones to be safe from perilous weather conditions and the Delaware Indians, their enemy. Now the place has turned into a promising tourist destination that offers features such as minigolf course, mock gem mine, and a petting zoo. There is also a museum, a picnic spot and a gift shop at this place that you must not forget to hit.

Fun exploring the caves. Nice on a hot day to be down in the ground. Can be slippery and the stairs going down are steep. Not too crowded when we went. Fun for all to be able to touch the walls. No food to be bought there. Unfortunately they had cooler issues so we couldn't buy water as it was warm but the staff was friendly.
Awesome place to take your kids and spend the day! There's so much to do here! Bring your own lunch though. No food stands :( Still love going here for family day!
We had a great time. We loved the cave, the kids loved climbing around with really no boundaries, there aren't any places that are off limits. There are about 60 steps but they are very stable and they have great stable railings. Our party of 11 definitely recommends these caves. Sherry from Minerva, Ohio
The caverns here look more like I expected a cavern to look like. They are neat to walk around but it's a pretty short visit. I think kids would have fun here because they would be able to touch the walls and explore the caverns on their own time.
I’m pretty amazed by the number of 5 star reviews considering what I saw. I remember going to this place from my childhood and was excited to share the experience with my family. I couldn’t have been more disappointed. Most of what was in the caverns has been destroyed. All of the stalagmites have been removed by the introduction of self tours and there’s more graffiti than any natural formations. The crystal room was remarkably absent of crystals. Very different than what I remember from past visits. We finished the cave tour in 10 mins. Outside of the main caverns the owners seem to have focused more on gimmicks than presenting and preserving history. And of course you can enjoy it all for a fee. The caverns are overpriced considering no maintenance is taking place and the tours are unguided. Not a destination, just a roadside attraction to let the kids stretch their legs. Not worth a visit any longer.
