Fun for the whole family. It's exciting, it's educational and most of all it's a great adventure, in a living limestone cave, carved by an underground river over the course of millions of years. A variation of our Lantern Tour with flashlights and geared toward the younger family members. Everyone is able to navigate the cave as our discoverer Lester Howe did....in the dark!
You will begin your tour with an introduction to the cave by a very lifelike animatronic Lester Howe, who discovered Howe Caverns in 1842. After your visit with Lester, you will begin your descent via elevator 156 feet into the great cave.
Your guide will take you through the caverns under the full beauty of the lights, to the underground boat ride on the Lake of Venus. Upon your return to the dock, all lights in the cave will be extinguished and you will continue your journey out of the cave by flashlight (both kids and adults) and lighted head lamps (kids only - sorry mom and dad!)
