When visiting Silver Dollar City, a tour of Marvel Cave is always included with admission. These cave tours depart approximately every hour and last 60 minutes, with most of that time spent traversing nearly 600 stairs. A trained cave guide hosts the journey and provides visitors with anecdotes of historical or geological importance.

A cable train takes cave visitors up the half mile, 1070-foot climb back to the surface once the tour is complete.

For an extra charge, Silver Dollar City also offers a Lantern Light Tour where visitors can experience Marvel Cave the old fashioned way, without electricity. Guides dressed in period costume will provide historical facts and little known stories during the 90 minute extended tour, which is limited to 20 people a day.

DO NOT MISS! The cave tour takes a day at Silver Dollar City to an entirely new level (so to speak) and we can't believe it is included in park admission. The Cathedral Room is one of the most awe-inspiring spaces I've ever seen. The "Christmas tree" during An Old Time Christmas is a memorable and inspired touch.
