Having observed bats in my little Texas town, I was already acquainted with them, but the sheer number of them coming out of the cave is staggering! The ranger gives a good talk before the "show" and engages children and adults, too. It is hot. Bring water. Follow the rules about electronic devices...they are serious about it. There is a guano odor after a few minutes, so you may want to sit back a bit. The exit goes on for about 15-20 minutes, so when you have seen enough, quietly leave. I am so glad I went.
