Penn’s Cave & Wildlife Park Centre Hall, Centre County
This is something the kids will NEVER forget!
Plan a Day at Penn’s Cave & Wildlife Park! America’s ONLY all-water cavern and wildlife park are nestled in Central Pennsylvania’s scenic Penn State Country. The cavern tour is a guided one-hour tour by motorboat on an underground stream. Along the limestone corridors, stalagmites, stalactites, flowstone cascades and draperies decorate the interior rooms, while underwater, trout swim and jump for feed!
The “Cave Bacon”, “The Statue of Liberty” and “The Garden of the Gods”! Also, for an extra fee, kids can go gemstone panning.
Bring a Sweatshirt. It is pretty cool down in the cave (52 degrees all year long!).
Also available, the Farm & Wildlife Tour: a guided 90-minute motorized tour over 1,500 acres of Penn’s Cave forests and fields which have been carefully preserved as a natural habitat for birds, plants, and animals. North American animals, such as bears, wolves, elk, deer, bobcats, bison, longhorn cattle, mustangs as well as the Penn’s Cave Icon, the cougar, are seen, along with the African adventure museum.
