Polar Caves

We enjoyed Polar Caves! If you are pregnant, like I was at the time, you won't fit and will have to take some detours, but my husband and 10 year old daughter loved it so much they went around again while I waddled back to the front for the restroom.

Polar Caves

Wear a sweater or sweatshirt. Gets chilly brrrrr.....

[Pam, 02/08/2010]

We recommend trying to worm your way through the "Lemon Squeeze" or "Fat Man's Misery" sections of the caves. That should warm you up!

Polar Caves

Includes exhibits of pheasants from around the world, regional ecological information, and winding wooden walkways that lead to small caves. One cave was closed for "ice removal" but we didn't see anything polar about the caves. Fun nonetheless. Great gift shop with sparkly unicorn paintings, etc.
