The kids loved this part of the tour, it is a very tight fit through narrow openings in the cave...loved it!

It is a narrow passage within the cave. You have to turn a little sideways to get through part of the passage.

This section of Mammoth Cave National Park is part of the New Entrance Tour. The very wide cave narrows to a small channel about waist-high (good space above the waist) that one squeezes through as one traverses this section of the cave. Our guide assured us that she even had a 300 pound person make it through with no difficulty, so don't be put off by the title!

Can definately see why & how it got it's name. Kids had a blast thinking that mom and dad wouldn't get through as they thought it was for "kids only". But we showed them! They weren't able to get us trapped below the surface!
