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.)

These caverns are beautiful and the tour was great. The formations and underground water are stunning and our guide was knowledgeable. However, be prepared for 70 degrees and 99% humidity, so dress in lightweight clothes. My husband was very sweaty and uncomfortable. At the end of the tour, there is a steep and long climb to get out. For those... More

My husband and I made the 40 minute drive from our River Walk hotel to see the Caverns. I'm so glad that we did! We arrived soon after they opened on a Saturday and there was no line. It was a self-guided aquifer tour, due to all of the rain they've been receiving. The tour itself started kind of slowly,... More

We visited on a rainy Sunday. Ended up being a great time to visit as it wasn't packed and we were able to do all the activities. We took the self guided aquifer tour (aka discovery tour) which is only available after periods of heavy rain. There are staff members positioned in the cavern to point out interesting features and... More

Have visited quite a few other caverns worldwide, this was not as impressive as the others. Most of the time was spent walking to and from cavern.

The formations were very interesting. The humidity is a bear . My daughter and I started with curls and ended with afros. We had fun and the echoes were great. We took the less adventurous because I was unwilling to crawl through tight spots. The gift shop was ok but you can't take a piece of the cavern with you.... More

We combined this with the Safari drive-through nearby. This is nice cavern to walk throguh. They have the general tour, and they also offer a guided "Spelunker" tour with ropes and helmets etc!
