Explore The National Treasure Beneath The City
For more than 100 years adventurers have hiked through the passageways of one of God’s greatest wonders, and over 60 years ago that same wonder put Silver Dollar City on the map. Even today, guests of all ages are encouraged to take the 60-minute walking tour of Marvel Cave where they’ll explore Missouri’s Deepest Cavern and hear colorful stories of the cave’s simple beginning to its present day status as Registered Natural Landmark. Regular cave tours are FREE and start at park opening, leaving frequently throughout the day. And, year round the cave is “naturally-climate controlled” at a comfortable 60 to 65 degrees!
For the more adventuresome, sign up for a Marvel Cave Lantern Light Tour—Silver Dollar City’s Deepest Darkest Secret. During this special 90-minute tour at the end of the day, the lights in the cave are turned off as brave cave explorers light their way with lantern in hand, just like the first pioneers did! Hear little known stories and get a Lantern Light Tour exclusive—a trek to the Mammoth Room (not available on regular cave tours). Lantern Tours have an upcharge and require reservations made at the Cave Desk inside the park (kids must be at least 8 years of age).
Plus, a NEW EXCLUSIVE this Spring for Gold and Diamond Season Pass Holders as part of their VIP Access, Marvel Cave will host ONE DEDICATED TOUR each day reserved only for them. Be sure to check in at the Cave Desk early when you arrive to place your FREE reservation for this tour and guarantee your spot; space is limited.
Start a new tradition in The City and discover why Silver Dollar City’s founders fell in love with the Ozarks, this national wonder and the dream of a City built to entertain the guests that would wait to take a cave tour. If they built it, people would come...little did they know, so many years later, that it was in fact the internationally-awarded theme park that guests from around the world would still be drawn to today!
