Perry’s Cave & Family Fun Center

Located on Catawba Avenue about a mile from downtown, Perry’s consists of eight amazing attractions. Open seven days a week, visitors can easily group tickets for different attractions to save on cost. There are also group discounts available so make sure to call ahead. The best way to get to the fun center is with a Put-in-Bay Golf Cart Rental that you can reserve online here.

Perry’s Cave

The centerpiece at Perry’s is the unique and magical Perry’s Cave. Located about 52 feet underground, the cave wasn’t discovered until 1813. Commodore Oliver Hazard Perry, the hero, and leader of the Battle of Lake Erie is credited for finding it.

This was a very lucky find. During the War of 1812, the troops needed water during this trying time. Perry’s Cave is also home to a rare underground lake full of freshwater. It is also the last cave on the island with an intact roof.

This underground lake is definitely mysterious. It rises and falls with the tides of Lake Erie, but no one has discovered where they are connected yet! The infamous Victory Hotel also used water from the cave before it burned down in 1919.

If you plan on touring the cave make sure to bring a sweater. The temperature is always 52 degrees, which is much cooler than summers on Put-in-Bay.

Gemstone Mining

Mine for treasures just like those prospectors of yore! Purchase a bag of rough mix and then sift through it for geodes and fossils. They’re real! You can also purchase a geode at the shop and get it cut onsite.

Fort aMaze’n

Race your friends to the end of this challenging maze or compete against yourself to beat your best your time. Folks cheer you on from the observation tower as you get lost in getting lost and found over and over again!

Other attractions include the Antique Car Museum and the Rock Wall, which was just recently remodeled

We actually ate at DanDees twice because the food was good and we were there the entire day with the kids. The sandwich was excellent. The fries were superb. Great drinks, great service.
