Description:

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.)

Fun but slippery

Have visited other caverns, but these are very interesting with lots of different formations. The "chandeliers" are particularly interesting.

I have been trying for over a week now to purchase tickets for a tour. Tickets are only available online, according to the young lady on the phone who has a bit of an attitude. I would highly recommend speaking to a manager and bypass the young staff members. The website is not updated to show availability for the day... More

The caverns are good to visit if you have some spare time in San Antonio. If you have been to the Luray Caverns in Virginia, this one might be a disappointment.

Both the unbelievable caverns and the zip lines were worth the drive. Efficient crowd control and a great zip line for first timers.

We did the tour with the large Caverns and man, were they huge! It's very humid and wet, so definitely wear sneakers or shoes with sturdy souls and later if it's chilly outside. The tour lasted about 75 minutes and was only 3/4 of a mile, but it was steep switchbacks up and down. Definitely worth the money and they... More

We took our 6 and 8 year old and we really loved it (our 6 year old not so much, but the rest of us). It's really different and very interesting. I was waiting for the goblins from the Lord of The Rings to come out. The tour was about 70 minutes and we didn't have to wait to long... More

The caves were pretty amazing! I would recommend this to anyone who is in shape, and are NOT afraid of tight spaces! It was very fun, and I would go there again!

I have been to a few other caves and these were by far the best. Very large! Unlike other caves, it was very warm in the caverns. Definitely a great visit!

Went there with several friends. Inside it's very warm. Cold outside in December. Get different layers because you will get very warm as you walk more.

we took the discovery tour. The caverns them selves were beautiful and very nice to see. I have a problem with the tour guide. The rules repeated time and time again at every single stop until the very last stop. She gave 2 very interesting tidbits of how to remember which goes up and which goes down as far as... More
