This is the attraction that spawned Silver Dollar City . This cave was originally called Marble Cave by its discoverers, who thought the incredible formations lining one wall were actually made of marble. But the name was changed to Marvel when that assumption was disproved. It is indeed a marvel. The entrance room is the largest cave entrance in the country. The cave is owned and operated by Silver Dollar City and the park entrance fee covers a guided tour of the depths. Touring the cave takes about 60 minutes and the trail descends more than 300 feet into the earth and requires maneuvering 600 stairs.
I took my children into the cave for the first time this summer. They loved it. My oldest son thought it was great. We were right up front with the tour guide and he got to ask all the questions that he wanted. They were all completely awe struck by the sheer size of the cave. We can't wait to go back and tour it again.
My family enjoyed every moment through Marvel Cave. When you reach the bottom of the first room (Cathedral Room) �you are 300 ft. underground,� said our guide Levi. He was educational and entertaining. The Cathedral Room is over 200 ft. tall and is jaw dropping. Room after room of interesting rooms and amazing formations, there is so much to see. You don�t have to walk all the way back up, instead you get a train ride out of the cave. The train itself is worth the trip. I don�t think any theme park in the U.S. has a cave. Do not miss Marvel cave when visiting Silver Dollar City!
My husband and I were a bit leary of taking our 6yr old and 4 year old on this 600 step tour of the cave but I'm so glad we did! It was great and the kids loved it! It is a little treacherous in some places (slippery, steep and low clearances) but nothing we couldn't handle. I personally would not take a child under 3 because if you end up having to carry them all the way it could be tiresome. It was a fun time!
Our whole family loved it, even with children ranging in age from 19 to 3! The 600 steps down were exhilirating. The formations were beautiful, and the sheer size of the Cathedral Room was amazing. Great value, since you don't pay any extra. We recommend taking the last tour of the day at 8pm -- what a great way to finish your visit to Silver Dollar City!
