Owner description: The largest cavern in Carlsbad Caverns.
Reviewed July 14, 2013

Absolutely incredible! The size of the room, the amazing formations, there's just no way to describe it or capture it in photos - it must be seen. We did the self guided audio tour and enjoyed every minute of it. Recommend that you eat an early lunch, as the elevator line up to the restaurant got long after noon.

The Big Room is impressive! I think they said you could fit 6 football fields in it? As soon as you enter it, your mouth just gapes open. Beautiful work of natural art!

Huge and outrageous come to mind as descriptions of this incredible room. A must see. We did not use the audio tour but did take the kings room tour prior. We did not walk down but wish we had allowed enough time to do that as we heard it was really nice.

I can see why Carlsbad Caverns is a top must see in the United States. I've been to a few caves over the years and this was the biggest. Huge rooms and lots of interesting shapes that have been carved by mother nature and father time. Must see!
