The Marvel Cave itself is an attraction and the Herschend family knew this when they built the park in 1960. Today, in addition to rides and games both inside and out of the cave, SDC takes you back to a time when people living in these mountains created everything they needed using local materials. Guests can learn from artisans how to make products such as fresh candy, leather, pottery, and glass. You can even try your hand at glass blowing and/or pottery making from one of the workshops.
