The caverns look as they did when two young boys found an opening to them in 1884. An hour-long guided tour guests on level crushed gravel pathways through 17 rooms including “Breakfast Bacon”, the Grotto of the Gods, the sparkling calcite crystals of Diamond Cascade, and the Cardross Castle, and Whirlpool Room. Although there are eight naturally-occurring openings in the caverns that allow fresh air to circulate, many visitors suggest that guests bring a light rainproof jacket and wear sneakers for the constant 52 degree temperature underground.
Three Additional Attractions – A visit to the Shenandoah Caverns includes three other family attractions — Main Street of Yesteryear’s animated window displays, American Celebration on Parade’s real parade floats from the Thanksgiving Day and Rose Bowl parades, and The Yellow Barn, a hall of restored antique farm wagons, an indoor live beehive, and a Virginia Wine Shop.
American Celebration on Parade: Pirates and More! – American Celebration on Parade houses 27 massive full-size parade floats including its newest Disney “Pirates of the Caribbean” ship float used in the Philadelphia Thanksgiving Day Parade. In addition to 100 props from Presidential Inaugurals, the exhibit also features floats from The Tournament of Roses, and other national celebrations.
After viewing the parade floats, visitors can visit the gift shop where they can visit the Liberty Clock Shop, the Virginia Wine Shop, the Bearington Bears Shop, and the Sweet Celebration Candy Shoppe where you can create your own “Pucker Powder” candy art.
The Yellow Barn – The Yellow Barn is the caverns’ newest attraction featuring restored antique farm wagons, equipment, carriages and vehicles, including a 35-foot-tall tree house that is home to a family of five-foot-tall squirrels. The tree house was part of the “Fantasy Award” winning float in the 2007 Tournament of Roses Parade and helps define a special children’s activity area in the Barn. The Yellow Barn also offers events like concerts and wine festivals and has featured such names as Tommy Cash, T. Graham Brown, and Nadine from Larry’s Country Diner, and Ben “Cooter” Jones.
