It's just okay. Definitely too expensive (student ticket 2500 Huf). We were in the cave for about 30-45 minutes. Basically you just walk around, sometimes it's dark and spooky but most of the time...

It's certainly the coolest (temperature) place in town. It comprises a series of Tunnels with small Alcoves. I think alot of it's attraction is based around the Story of Dracula's imprisonment here and as you approach the far end of this complex, where this is illustrated, an artificially created cold mist permeates the passage ways. The "Maze of Darkness" is particularly spooky, an "optional area" of passage ways you have to find your way through in total darkness. Tickets are Cash Only so make sure you bring sufficient.
After reading mixed reviews, we didn’t know what to expect but we had a blast! We were in there almost 2 hours. Our favorite part was probably the optional “maze of darkness” that has no lighting and requires you to follow a rope through the cave.
Oh my God!!! YOU HAVE TO VISIT THE LABYRINTH. However, if you are claustrophobic, it will be a huge challenge for you and may be you should avoid it. The place is huge and endless, we were walking for over an hour an half and we realized we didn't see half of it. The feeling is creepy but great at the same time, thinking that it's not a fake place but a real one. Most certainly , if there weren't arrows to show you the way, you would easily get lost. Don't fail to visit it. Ask for it, in case you can't find, because it's located on a small road. Also, the don't get cards, only cash. Oh! And have your mobiles ready. It's really dark and there are spots that you will need your flash light.
What a spectacle and surprise. If your looking for something different to do head to the Labyrinth… I was blown away with it all… you might need a torch to read the writing on the historical information boards… but be sure not to use them in the un lit part of the cave..just follow the rope handle…
3000 HUF per person, felt like a rip off when we left. Attendant said cash only but clearly had a card reader sitting next to him. We only spent ~ minutes wandering around inside. Not clear directional signs so we missed half of it but couldn’t find our way back to see the rest and ended up exiting. Terrible reproductions of statues that weren’t that cool or interesting. The best thing I can say was that it was a nice break from the current heat wave.
