Rushmore Cave, Keystone, South Dakota

With temperatures near 100-degrees today, we decided staying underground (and in air conditioning) was a good idea, so we went to the nearest cave ~ Rushmore Cave – just five miles from Keystone. Would we normally go to Rushmore Cave? No, probably not, but it was on our VIP card, so we were able to enjoy a free cave tour, free zip-line ride, and free Gunslinger 7-D Interactive Theater (at a savings of $54 for the two of us).

First, we did the one-hour guided cave tour which took us (and our group) through a few different rooms (the Post Office, Image Room, Floral Room, and Big Room) with various cave art: stalactites, stalagmites, columns, etc…..  There were 400+ stairs, but an easy walk, nice and cool, and interesting. Our guide (Kevin) was very knowledgeable and informative, which made the tour quite enjoyable.  In fact, everyone we met that worked for Rushmore Caves was nice, affable, and professional, which always makes an experience all that more enjoyable.


After our tour, we went on the zip-line, which was a two person seat and quite the quick ride. 


Finally, we enjoyed the Gunslinger 7-D Interactive Theater where we sat in moving seats and had “guns” to shoot the bad guys and saved the good guys. 


Overall, we had fun, but glad we didn’t have to spend the $54 for the hour-and-a-half of enjoyment. :-)
Easy and affordable - no matter where you are!
