Come on down (way down) at the largest underground attraction in Texas!...

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.)

Loved the caverns

I took my kids and grandkids and we had a great time at the caverns exploring and taking pictures and learning new things.

We have been in many caves and weren't really expecting too much. But this turned out to be a great living cave . Do put on your walking shoes but it's good exercise.

You have to come prepared to walk, and walk and walk a little more. But, it is worth it! The crew is very enthusiastic and knowledgeable. Prices are reasonable.

I tried the combo tour which seemed like a great value. And since I tried the discovery tour and the hidden passage, I can say that the discovery tour is definitely better in terms of views inside the cavern. However, in the hidden passage you get to try what it’s like to experience ‘natural darkness’ where the tour guide turns... More

I've been to over 1/2 dozen caves and caverns and no two are a like.. They all have their distinct formations to show off... Interesting that this cavern artificially keeps humidity at 99 percent... The path you take inside has slip proof floors but get ready to go up a few stairs to get out... Bat population minimal to none..... More

The sights in these caverns are just amazing. The walkways are very well engineered and unlike some other caverns the temperature is a constant 70 degrees. There are two cavern tours and they are quite different. I would recommend taking both of them.

This was so much fun! Took my 18 year old son. He enjoyed it as well. It was great to do something different. It was an amazing site. We love to hike so the amount of walking didn't bother us. Small kids that went seemed to be tired. I would not recommend small children especially those in strollers going. There... More

I didn't realize how much exercise it would really be exiting the caverns. But I did enjoy and took lots of pictures. We went on both the Discovery and The hidden passages tour so we got a lot of exerisce. The only thing o didn't like during the discovery tour was a lady had a crying baby and we couldn't... More
