Wind Cave suspends cave tours pending elevator repairs

July 2, 2019

HOT SPRINGS, S.D. (AP) — Visitors to Wind Cave National Park in southwestern South Dakota won’t be able to take cave tours until elevator repairs are completed.

Park officials said Tuesday a safety problem was identified last Friday, making the shutdown necessary.

Cave tours may be canceled for more than a month while parts are ordered, manufactured and installed.

However, the cave’ s visitor center remains open with rangers offering free interpretive programs.
