Owner description: 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.)

We visited the Natural Bridge Caverns, and it was worth the short drive from San Antonio. We went on the Discovery Tour, which is about 70 minutes long, guided with a knowlegeable tour guide. There are steep inclines going up and down, so I would maybe not recommend for those who have trouble getting around. There are hand rails throughout, so my kids 6 and 8 were able to walk through just fine without me worrying about falling. The caverns are absolutely beautiful, and you can hear water trickling throughout the walk, very calming. I would highly recomend this tour. Try to be in the front of the line, so you can talk to tour guide a little more.

We had a good time at the Natural Bridge Caverns and found the experience very interesting. There was a lot of walking involved with half of it uphill. If you have trouble walking up stairs you might want to sit it out. For all the ladies out there don't worry about fixing your hair before you go. It was so humid in the caverns any time you spend getting ready will be a waste. Also, watch out for the continual dripping on your head. I suggest wearing a hat of some sort and a good pair of walking shoes because the ground is slippery.

Lots to see and do at Natural Bridge which is just a short drive north from San Antonio. The tours are interesting and informative, and you can always count on cool temps as you descend into the depths of the Earth.

This is a unique experience and very interesting. You'll see mounds of bat "guano", irridescent stalagtites and deep caverns. Really a natural marvel. Not for anyone clostrophobic.

If you've seen one cave, you've seen them all. Worth the trip if you are not familiar with or really enjoy caves. In typical fashion, this cave is huge- AKA Texas Size.
