These spectacular caves are known for their huge open rooms but they also have narrow passages and interesting formations. Two types of cave tours are available and take approximately 70 minutes. But there are plenty of things to do here other than just touring the caves, and if you're looking for more of an adrenaline rush, try the Canopy Challenge, a course of platforms and ladders 60 feet above the ground, as well as ziplines. Younger children can also get in on the action with the Sky Tykes, with a rope course designed for younger kids and toddlers.
