What a rush! My wife and I are in our late-20s and often ride ATVs through the mountains where we live in Colorado and, even for us, this was no kiddie ride through the jungle! You spend 45 minutes whipping your vehicle around corners, launching yourselves over hills, speeding recklessly over massive rocks and through humongous puddles of mud... I don't think we stopped laughing the entire time! You then take a quick dip in the gorgeous clear waters of the cavern before getting back on your vehicle. We put that poor thing through heck and had an absolutely awesome time doing it! We were weary to book the trip because of a few negative reviews, so I want to address a few of those... 1) Our group (even as hard as we drove) didn't have any vehicles break down but we did see a couple along the side of the road. After you experience the ride, you can understand why a few might break, but the staff does an excellent job of either fixing them on site or getting another vehicle out to you. It's just natural after all that these things go through, that some would eventually give out. 2) The vehicles definitely do not have any power steering so be ready for an arm and shoulder workout, but it wasn't anything that my wife couldn't handle. 3) The staff was more than happy with us taking our own pictures in the vehicles, on the road and in the cavern. They even offered to take some for us. They did ask us to not take any of our own pictures of the animals on site, but I think that is understandable since the animals were not included in the price of the excursion. The staff tried to sell us the pictures they took of the animals, but were very kind and not-at-all pushy when we politely declined. 4) Helmets, gloves and goggles were provided free of charge. They did charge $2 for the lockers (which was standard on all excursions that we took) and $2 for bandanas (if you wanted to use them). My wife and I did not use bandanas. We definitely got mud and dirt all over our face but we did not feel like we were choking or having any time breathing. 5) Yes, you need to wear close-toed shoes and clothing that you don't mind getting dirty. I would recommend wearing water shoes, a swim suit and an old t-shirt that you can dispose of at the end of the trip. The mud and dirt do wash out, but we just took the easy approach. We have nothing but wonderful memories of this experience and would HIGHLY recommend booking it!
