Come on down (way down) at the largest underground attraction in Texas! Daily guided tours allow guests to explore large underground chambers and see huge formations. The largest room is bigger than a football field. Above ground, discover rocks, minerals, and rough-cut gems at the Natural Bridge Mining Company Sluice. The Canopy Challenge will test your agility on over 40 different obstacles while you are on our 4 story, 60 foot high Adventure Course. Then you can fly across the scenic Texas Hill Country on our zip-lines! (Canopy Challenge is open daily but weather dependent.)

This is by far one of the coolest thing that my husband and I have done in San Antonio. The tour guide was very funny and knowledgable about the caverns. Definitely a must do in SA!

Our family of four loved the Caverns. Our guide Tori was amazing, she was patient with the large group, shared great information, and had a sense of humour. What a gem!

This is a cave so expect it to be humid and SA TX is a hot place overall so plan you trip for a cooler month. But this is a place you should take your family. This is an experience for everyone in the family to enjoy. It's a must see and you can't get this experience in the mall.

Really enjoyed the caverns. You walk down approx. 180' below ground. It is 70 degrees with 99% humidity o it feels like about 80 degrees. The trek down was easy but what goes down must come up and I have to say that part was rather taxing. By the time we reached the top we were huffing and puffing but... More

Try to attend around Christmas when the Caverns host a number of choirs singing in the different rooms of the caverns

NOT for the elderly or handicapped. 5 and 6 yr olds were not entertained. would not do again. now, we did the Discovery (original) trail. there is a newer area of the caves... More

The walk down is amazing to see what has been created just over time. Great attraction just for the view and to cool off if you are sitting around in the sweltering heat of Texas.

Our family, two adults, two kids, made the "Hidden Passage Tour" in July 2015. Comparing to the much bigger and much more impressive Carlsbad Caverns in N.M. which I visited a few years ago this tour was disappointing, even more considering that they charge more than double for basically one cave and the tour feels time wise somewhat stretched.

Being able to see majestic formations underground is a unique opportunity. This cavern tour offers ancient natural history that is awesome. The walk is well designed so it was not difficult for nearly all ages. It was self paced, but crowded so it takes just over an hour but plenty of "wow" to enjoy. There are guides stationed at random... More
