Bend Over

When you get to this point in the cave tour, short guys like my grandson walked right through. However, the tall guys gotta do some bending over to get thru here.

It's not an individual attraction but part of a cave tour. Prepare to bend low and to go through tight places. But the cave is amazing and worth every second... The tour guides are knowledgeable and they tailor the pace to meet everybody's needs.

I hate tight enclosed spaces. This was part of a tour of other attractions well worth going. Domes and dripstones was beautiful. Tall man's misery required bending very low to avoid hitting your head but it was very short. I am 70 with new hip and made it with ease. Had to hold on to rocks though.

There are parts of this area where you will really have to bend over, and sometimes you are going down steps and have to bend, but never have to crawl so all was good!

We did this is part of another tour, it is actually part of the cave system that you will go through not an individual attraction.

Ok, I am 6'3" and 67 years old, and have to bend over and turn sideways a little for about 20 seconds.....should be no problem for anyone under about 6'8". Biggest problem was not banging my camera handing from my neck. Nothing special....

If you blink you will miss it. It is after the Fat Man's Misery on the historic cave tour. Very short distance perhaps 15 feet of stooping to miss hitting your head on rocks.

This cave tour is an excellent adventure for the entire family. If you are afraid of confined spaces you may not like walking around inside a cave. Most of the areas are wide and provide plenty of space, except for this section. Great rainy day activity. Take this tour!

Tall Man's Misery on the Historical tour requires some stooping, so if you can't bend over easily, rethink this tour. It really is not that bad.

On the Historic Tour (among others). Had a lot of fun. I'm a tall person and I didn't have too much trouble. Good tour of kids.
