We have temporarily closed in an effort prevent the spread of COVID-19.

When you come out to experience America's Ride-Thru Cave, know that the health and safety of you, your family, and your friends are top priorities for the team at Fantastic Caverns

The team at Fantastic Caverns is working diligently to ensure the safety of our employees and all of our guests as we closely monitor the situation regarding COVID-19. The health and safety of our guests are top of mind as we suspend our memorable ride through cave experiences. We have increased the frequency of our everyday health and safety protocols and procedures, and we are taking extra precautions to keep everyone safe and healthy.


What Fantastic Caverns has done to combat the spread of COVID-19:

  • Temporarily closed to help mitigate the spread of the virus
  • Before closing, we reduced the number of people on each ride-thru departure by 40 percent
  • We've increased the frequency of our cleaning procedures and will take action based on the guidance of health and safety experts
  • Surfaces are being wiped with disinfectant continually throughout the day
  • We are continually educating our employees on best public hygiene practices and providing them with up-to-date information on COVID-19
