The Uncanny Caverns is a pre-War tourist destination that was composed of a series of caverns and tunnels, as well as a reception and gift shop. The Caverns offered self-guided and guided tours to customers, as well as premium passes that allowed customers to explore otherwise off-limits areas. Because the Caverns had no distinct or unique features to attract tourists, tour guides were told to emphasize the legend of the Night Kid. The Night Kid, according to legend, was a small boy who had been discovered in the caverns living with bats. The self-guided tour boxes explain the legend of the Night Kid and his various exploits.
The entrance and gift shop consists of a fairly run-down building and contains old souvenir shelves and check-out desks. A ramp outside the building, which can be accessed from the right-hand side of the entrance building, leads down to the entrance to the Caverns. The location is guarded by mole rats and weak feral ghouls.
The caverns consist of five separate caverns, connected by a looping wooden walkway. There are also several small tunnels and nooks along the path, which feature stories about the Night Kid and information about various natural features, such as a pool of "pure" water and a small stream. It appears that many people tried to hide in the caverns after the bombs fell, as skeletons and supplies can be found throughout the caverns. There are ten audio tour stations along the path that explain the various caverns and features.
- Curse of the Wendigo - Part 1 - Holotape, on the front desk in the entrance building.
- Curse of the Wendigo - Part 2 - Holotape, in a small room at the back of the walkway loop.
- Several Vault-Tec bobbleheads in the following locations:
- Inside a vending machine beside the Uncanny Caverns photo opportunity sign.
- Inside the Halfling Hole tour section (Audio Tour Station 6).
- On a ledge at the back of the Dead End tour section (Audio Tour Station 8).
- Random magazines
- At the gift shop in front, inside a display case.
- Inside the first small room where the 2nd Curse of the Wendigo holotape is also found (Audio Tour Station 1).
- Inside the Dead End section, between two sleeping bags (Audio Tour Station 8).
- Random recipe - Inside the Dead End section, on a small table (Audio Tour Station 8).
- The voice of the self-guided tour speakers is Dick Shale, who claims to be notable as the speaker voice of other tourist sites across Appalachia.
- Pre-War visitors to the site could choose from three tour options:
- Base tour ($49) - an automated tour narrated by Dick Shale
- Wild Cave tour ($89) - the Base tour plus additional access to three additional "rooms" in the caverns - the Night Kid room, Halfling Hole, and Dead End
- Extreme Adventure tour ($179) - the Wild Cave tour plus additional access to the Devil's Offering
- Enemies inside the caverns vary and are leveled. Apart from the standard feral ghouls, mole rats and mole miners, a number of other creatures have been encountered, dependent on character level, from mirelurks and hunters to a random encounter leveled glowing wendigo.
- According to the Fallout 76 Offical Guide, Uncanny Caverns is considered part of The Ash Heap area.
The Uncanny Caverns appears only in Fallout 76.
