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.)

Interesting caverns!

We visited these caverns with two grandchildren. This was a very family-friendly place. Our guide was OK, though not especially knowledgeable.

After reflecting on my families recent visit here, I feel like it's great to visit once. I would not be a repeat customer. It is pretty expensive for what you get.

They do need to work on their guided tours. Also the restrooms and public areas need sprucing up. But the beauty of the caverns make it worth while.

This was truely amazing to see! There are areas of the caverns that are a bit tight and steep so I don't recommend if there are any claustrophobia or gait issues.

We went here with grandkids and had a great time. Later, on another day we wanted to go to the night event at the bat cave but only to find out that we had to buy the ticket as part of the NBC package. Hmmmm.... wish they would have made that clear. We did not get to see the bats.... More

I know it says that it is a constant 70 degrees but when you filter in the humidity inside it becomes about mid 80's. Dress appropriately. It is beautiful and amazing to see this cave. It says an hour for the tour but you've seen the highlights in about 30. You have to wait for everyone to do pictures. This... More

My five stars are for the beauty of the caverns. However, I'd only give 4 stars to our tour. It was a Saturday and super busy so I keep this in mind. There were about 40 people in our tour group. If you are in a group this big try to get to the front of the line because when... More

I had read a review earlier trying to decide what to do while we were visiting New Braunfels that talked about a tour guide with a monotone voice. I thought I would risk it since my 9 year old wanted to see the caves. We were unable to understand a word he said...even after another visitor mentioned it to him... More
