For more than 70 years, Bridal Cave has been a favorite family attraction. Discovered by Native Americans centuries ago, Bridal Cave lies beneath Thunder Mountain. It's said to have been the site of the legendary Native American Wedding ceremony in the early 1800s. Today, Bridal Cave is still reserved by those who wish to have a truly unique and romantic wedding ceremony. In fact, more than 3,600 couples from around the globe have exchanged vows in the adorned Bridal Chapel.

As one of the most scenic caves in America, visitors will see amazing formations, giant columns, stalactites, stalagmites, and Mystery Lake, with convenient guided tours leaving throughout the day. A gift shop is on-site as well as a rock shop, mining sluice, observation tower, nature trail, and boat dock.
