One may also experience an array of paranormal activity...
Tour guides, additional staff, and guests alike have all had run-ins with several different phenomena. One such example is what appear to be baseball sized balls of light, or orbs, that can be seen with the naked eye, bouncing and zipping along the caverns. These lights are most often seen in what is known as the Council Room, an area where the Seneca are said to have had their meetings and ceremonies. People also report the flickering of the man-made light sources, as well as doors that will slam as they are approached. However, the prolific hauntings seem to be that of a phantom tour! Many tour guides, maintenance personnel, and others, have been in the cave and have heard the sounds of an approaching tour...footsteps, talking, laughing...the normal sounds of a group making its way through the tourist attraction. However, the tour never arrives. Some have theorized that this is simply a play of acoustics in the massive cave system. Unfortunately, to those who have witnessed this phenomena when there have been NO tours in the cave that day, this theory simply does not hold up.
