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.)

This was more work than I expected (even though they warn you); the sights are fine, but unless you are obsessed with the rock formations (stalagtites and stalagmites, etc), you may not feel rewarded for the exertion.

Do not leave here without seeing these caverns. When you go be sure to "condition" your camera because the caves are very humid and if your camera is cold, like mine was, it will fog up on you. Fortunately, I had a small point and shoot that was in my pocket and it was fine. Most, if not all, of my shots were with it. These caverns are amazing, it's hard to believe they are a natural creation that were centuries in the making. It's important to not touch them because they are actually "alive" and will die and turn black if touched. It's awe-inspiring in the least! You will not be disappointed.

The cave had incredible formations. It also had 99% humidity. Everyone drips sweat all the way through. It is also very strenuous with very steep and long passages. They do not tell you this when you buy your ticket. They wait until you are outside the entrance, ticket in hand, afraid to be a wimp. I would have appreciated some warning.

This is one of the best caverns we have been to in that it is a living cave. The formations are overall very much undisturbed and even though the cavern is not real big in comparison to others, the formations are very exotic as compared to others we have been to. The walk can be a bit strenuous and a bit slippery in a few areas, but it is so worth the effort to see it. Our guide was a young, very knowledgeable man, who has an avid interest in caves, and therefore made the tour, which, by the way was only four people extremely interesting. We went in October, when there were not that many visitors, and early in the day, so we were able to see and hear more because we could hear and see what formations he was talking about. Excellent!

Great cave experience for a family. It is slick to walk in some places and is not wheelchair accessable, but overall it is a great place to visit.
