Great staff, fun attractions, and beautiful scenery. My son got altitude sickness and they were very accommodating and helpful. Once he got over it, he had a blast. Good place for kids and adults. If you're visiting the area I suggest adding this to your agenda. And do the Wind Walker challenge course with your kids, its awesome!
My friends and I recently did a tour of this cave and really enjoyed it! We had some time before our tour to look around the gift shop and see the beautiful views outside (see photo). The tour we chose was the lantern tour, which we thought was pretty cool...your only light throughout the tour is the light from the lanterns you carry, and you get to hear ghost stories throughout. (They were a bit scary, so be aware of that--the cave offers other family friendly tours as well.) You also have to crouch down pretty low when entering and exiting the cave because of the low "ceilings", but we loved it! I would highly recommend going to this cave if you are ever in the Colorado Springs/Manitou Springs area. :)
