It's Not Haunted Jun 12, 2011
I've only been in two caves now, Spook Cave and Niagara Cave in southeast Minnesota. Spook Cave in my opinion was a much better cave, though it's a pretty young cave as far as caves go, which means you won't see very many stalagtite formations, and the ones you do see aren't that big.

Spook Cave requires a boat ride for the whole journey because of the spring-fed stream that formed it. Once inside the cave entrance, there are areas that are very low, requiring you to duck down in the boat to avoid being hit, and a "lover's lane" passageway that is so narrow that "you learn to love your neighbor or you learn to love the wall."

When we arrived, we were told that it would be a 20-minute or less wait. Presumably, this was when the boat that was already on tour was due to come back. However, so many people came in after us, they got another boat ready and then a third--the first boat came back to dock at the same time that we were leaving. Our boat was full of people, as were the next two, but the boat that had gone out right before ours only had two people in it.

The tours last a little over half an hour.
