Wonderland Under Warrior cave tour is back at the Rickwood Caverns State Park for its fifth year.

The attraction started last November 20 and will run until January 2, 2022 only.

Tours run most days from 2 p.m. to 8 p.m., but schedules vary on certain days.

Visitors can start meeting Santa and get photos with him after Thanksgiving until the day before Christmas Eve. Santa will be in his workshop– located inside the park’s nature center– most days, but visitors should check St. Nick’s schedule online before going.

Wonderland Under Warrior includes 100,000 colorful lights installed throughout the cave and characters throughout to greet guests. The tour is self-guided and a little over a mile roundtrip.

Tickets are $12 per person ages 5 and up. Children 4 and under are admitted free. Advanced reservations are recommended, as many tour times sell out ahead of time. Tickets can be bought on their website. Same-day reservations cannot be made online, but can be made over the phone by calling (205) 647-9692. Tickets are non-refundable.

For a full schedule including holiday closures and the days Santa is at the event, visit the park’s website.
