Are you looking for a way to spend some time as a family? Look no further then Perry’s Cave and Family Fun Center. They have all sorts of fun things to do like: cave tour, Rock climbing, miniature golf, maze, and Butterfly House. The entire property is filled with a rich history of the island.
The cave was very cool and wet. It was very educational, yet fun. From a kids standpoint it was really cool. The tour guide was very friendly and knew a lot about history which was interesting. The cave itself was very well lit and you were given ample notice if you were afraid of tight spaces. Some places had a low ceiling for taller adults but for kids they didn’t even need to duck.
It was really neat to see all the variety of butterflies that they have brought to the butterfly house. All the the species are NOT native to the USA so you have to double check that you aren’t bringing any species with you. They provide mirrors so you can check all angles of yourself regardless if you are in a group or by yourself you can still be sure you are following the rules.
Fort A Maze In:
The maze was a little frustrating at first because it was hard to figure out your way through. Once you find the trick you will be sure to get through and find all the punches to spell out MAZE! The observation deck make it easy for parents to locate their children which was really nice with four kids running around.
18 Holes of War:
This miniature golf course was very well laid out and flows very well. There was plenty of space for large families to stand and take turns. The really unique factor about this course was the 18 pieces of historical facts that were shared through out the course. The sign for each hole had a different piece of information that talked about Commodore Perry and the Battles he led.
Rock Climbing Wall:
My kids have loved rock walls since they were 5 or 6 (just big enough to fit into the smaller harnesses!) I was glad to see that Perry’s offered rock climbing which gave my kids another way to stretch and reach which was a very welcome activity after being in the car for so long to get to Put-in-Bay.
We bought a few bags of “stones” to sift through while at Perry’s Cave on their sluice. Even Lil’ Red could join in since they offer sturdy wooden stools to stand on. All the kids had loads of fun and I think on a really hot Summer day this would be a great way to cool down.
