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.)

Great experience! 1000s of years in the making by nature at its best! Spectacular views and a knowledgeable guide. My wife is slightly disabled and uses a rollator by was able to use a walking stick; a bit of a struggle on some of the steeper places but it was well worth it!

We came because the aquifer tour. They have not done them in 7 years. We also did the Hidden Passage tour too. Just to let you know, because it was confusing reading on the website: The aquifer tour is just a modification to the discovery tour. Basically, instead of the regular route, you take another route to see the aquifer... More

My husband and I did one of the shorter tours and we really enjoyed it. The tour guide was very knowledgable and friendly. There are a lot of stair to climb so keep that in mind before you go. The inside of the cave was spectacular and unique. The tour guide lets you sit in COMPLETE darkness at one point... More

Nice work by nature over several 1000s of years. I would say, must visit the place to appreciate the beauty that lies around 200 ft below the ground.

I took my 2 teenage nephews to Natural Bridge Caverns. We really enjoyed it, we took the Adventure Tour. The natural beauty was well preserved and the tour guide did a good job. It had rained the night before so there was a lot of water pouring into the cavern and the ground was quite slippery. The guide said this... More

The cavern tour is excellent but if you want to experience something truly amazing book the bat flight experience. The guide is a bat advocate and very knowledgeable. It's a wildlife experience at it's best.

We left on a rainy Saturday from Irving to this place. The drive, that normally takes about 4.5 hours took 6 given the rain and traffic. There is ample parking space in the facility and its a short walk from the parking area till the visitor's center. They also have many parking spaces for the disabled thats located very close...

Natural Bridge Caverns has been around a long time. I remember going there as a grade school student in the 70's. The Cave was originally explored by some students from St, Mary's University in 1960 commissioned by the land owner. The main cavern is Called the Discovery tour and is an excellent retreat from the Texas heat in the summer... More

Been to Carlsbad Caverns too many times and was not expecting to have to be taken down by a tour guide, especially one that reminded up every other second that it was a felony to touch any of the formations. Be warned there is no elevator and the trip up is very steep, an those that do not deal with... More
