Come experience the magic of twinkling lights underground! Join us for our
5th annual “Wonderland Under Warrior”. Originally called “Santa’s Underground Workshop” this event became a holiday self- guided cave tour through immersive winter wonderland themed caverns. This event began in 2017 and has doubled the amount of annual visitors to Rickwood Caverns State Park. This year will bring a few changes and upgrades. Santa Claus will be joining us to welcome visitors and offering photo opportunities however will be located in the Nature Center which will allow for a smoother traffic flow through the cave. During the walk through the cave you will encounter different themed rooms such as dancing lights, glacier ice caverns, winter wonderland, elf villages, and more! Plenty of photo opportunities will be available as you meet with different characters throughout the cave including our mascot “Ricky the Bat”. The walk is about a half mile underground and a half mile back out.
The season officially begins on Saturday, November 20th. Santa will arrive the day after Thanksgiving and be available through December 23rd. A full schedule of operating hours including Santa’s hours can be found on our website.
