My hubby, 2 children (4 and 9) and I will be visiting Carlsbad for the first time next weekend (17 - 18 Oct). I am so excited to be able to visit the caverns at last, just need some advice:
I have arthritis in my knees but am determined to not let that stop me from getting the most out of the caverns. So I'm thinking should we do the natural entrance and big room tours then elevator up, OR take elevator down, big room, and Kings palace tour and elevator up, OR would it be dooable for me in one day to do the natural entrance, big room and Kings palace tours.
I have no idea how strenuous they are and which one is better/ not to be missed.
Also, if we get there friday at sunset as we plan to, (travelling from Juarez, Mexico) could we see the bat flight? -
or would we have to purchase tickets at the visitor center that closes 5pm for that?
Thanks so much for your advice
