Venture 505-Feet Deep Below The Earth At These One Of A Kind Caverns In Missouri
Do you ever wonder what it’s like to journey deep beneath the earth’s surface? Well, now you can experience a taste of life deep beneath the earth – 505 feet, to be exact – when you visit the deepest cave in Missouri. While underground you’ll discover an assortment of stunning limestone formations and breathtaking waterfalls.
Slip on your comfiest
and sturdiest shoes - you're going to need them - before you head underground in Marvel Cave, tucked in Silver Dollar City in Branson.
But, be prepared for the strenuous tour that includes a significant amount of exertion, including walking up
and down hundreds of stairs.
Suffering from heart, back, ankle, or other health problems? Then, the Marvel Cave Tour might not be right for you.
Ready to venture underground? Follow your seasoned tour guide, who will give you a glimpse into the history of the cave, which dates back to approximately 1500 AD.
But, it wasn't until 1894 that the cave was officially opened as a tourist attraction. Over the years, ownership changed hands and, in 1960, Silver Dollar City was built around the magnificent cave.
Today, countless visitors journey 505 feet below the earth's surface to get a firsthand look at the limestone cave that features growing formations.
Your journey begins when you descend 300 hundred feet below ground to the spectacular Cathedral Room, the largest "cave entrance room in the United States."
From there, your tour guide will lead you up and down a series of stairs and along paths to numerous rooms, including the Waterfall Room (500 feet below the surface), the Spring Room (with several waterfalls), and the Mammoth Room, where bats hibernate.
Then, at the end of the tour, you'll return to the ground level in a cable train that dates back to the late 1950s.
