    The Cavern is pretty, but small and though highly abused. The owners are trying to get maximum money with minimal effort . So much for preservation!

    We went to Cherokee Caverns for Dr. Bass lecture on Monday. What a disappointment it was! I don't blame Dr. Bass. He was given only 30 min by the end of the event. The host messed up the time on tickets and we were forced to freeze in this cold and damp environment on metal chair for an hour before any action began. Then some Dr. Hazari and very confused students jumped in a spot light with chemical tricks, which bored my 9 y.o. (not to mention 11 y.o.) and devoured all of the time! Dr. Bass promised he will talk more next time. Another $170, just to get what we already paid for?

  • The trick or treating was probably a bit rained out. But fun for the little ones who are learning how to trick or treat FYI the ramp coming out of the caverns is a bit Steep to push the wheelchair up with an adult. Wear tennis shoes for safety need more food trucks for choice.

  • Fascinating cave! Very friendly owners and staff. Awesome idea to show movies there. We enjoyed the Back to the Future showing. Great idea!

  • Great halloween spot for children. Not a haunted house but a lit up cave with candy and spooky decorations. $10 a person.

  • Nice little things to buy and the cave is a really cool sight to see. It's very accessable for all ages . Overall well worth stopping by

  • Went to the benefit/ grand re-opening and watched "The Goonies" with the kids in the cave and had a blast. Hope they do another movie day there soon. This is not a very big cave but the people there are caring and have a lot of heart. One man has been studying and saving the bats of the area for 40 years! Great for a 1st cave experience for people of all ages, especially little ones. And it's free. Donations are gladly accepted and are needed to keep it going. Do what you can but definitely worth a stop... it's great on a hot day because the temperature is always around 56-58 degrees!!!
