Perry’s Cave and Family Fun Center
Perry’s is one of the island’s favorite attractions. Located on Catawba about a mile from downtown, Perry’s is full of fun. Besides the mini-golf, visitors can challenge their friends to the Fort aMAZEn maze or the 25 foot rock wall.
A tour of Perry’s Cave is always thrilling and it may be one of the most fascinating caves in Ohio because it is actually the world’s largest geode and it is home to an underground lake. Descend 52 feet underground to see amazing rock formations and the lake Commodore Perry used for his troops.
There is also Gemstone Mining, an activity fun for the whole family, and the Butterfly House. The Butterfly House contains over 50 species of butterflies, beautiful flowers, and soothing music.
Dan Dee’s Snack Shack is onsite to quench your thirst and keep you going with french fries, fish baskets, and ice cream.
