Cascade Caverns

Their website reads: "Come and enjoy the cool comfort of [60-65] degree year round temperatures as you wonder through underground pathways, huge cavern rooms and soaring cavern walls." You'll wonder, all right.

Tackiness at its finest. See the paper mache dinosaur with lightbulb eyes! Walk through a damp cavern with no handrails, illuminated by Christmas lights! [since updated with "Illumination by a state-of-the-art LED system]

We laughed until we cried. Especially when we paid the admission! Well, the tour guide was really very nice and the history of the place is interesting.

We don't see anything in your description that would stop us from visiting. In fact we did visit, a week after a flood that made the passageways particularly slurpy. The cave is equipped with real lights. And don't forget the "dinosaur bones" and the "waterfall" (marvelously interpreted in their "photo" at cascadecaverns.com). This is classic commercial cave promotion!
