Come on down (way down) at the largest underground attraction in Texas!...

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.)

Our tour guide was a teen but very knowledgeable. I actually learned some interesting facts from him. It is not an exhausting walking trip by any means, but be sure to wear closed to shoes and a light wind break as it is a little chilly. The gift shop comes off as cheesy but the trip down to the caverns... More

This tour was about an hour and a half. It was very informative. I did a little research about it before I went so that helped to understand a little more of how it was found and by who. It was a great experience. The humidity is very high 99% so it is very much a dripping experience in the... More

I enjoyed Carlsbad Caverns in California, this is so much smaller yet it is very interesting and a marvel in its own right.

What a fun and interesting time. And boy, did it get dark! The guide gets you to the lowest part of the caves and turns out the lights to show how pitch dark it can be. The paths are filled with wonder and different things to see. Stalagtites and Stalagmites are alive and growing and always changing so it's a... More

We took the discovery tour and thought it was great. The formations and "room" sizes were spectacular! We purchased our tickets online in advance to save a couple bucks. There was no line and we only had to wait about 10 minutes for the next tour to start. After the tour we decided to do the canopy challenge and enjoyed... More

The 75-minute walk through the caverns were better than we expected. At first, I was disappointed that we weren't going to the safari next door, but we later heard (and TripAdvisor had told us in advance) that the caverns are much better if you only have a short while to visit. The bats weren't around in January because they migrate... More

Living in San Antonio we have visited many times - and it gets better ever year. So much to see, learn and do. Make sure to wear tennis shoes and dress appropriately. But worth the workout!

My son and I have been to other caverns so I was really expecting more of the same (so to speak). Boy was I surprised. We took the Discovery Tour and the cavern was breath-taking. Apparently there is a world of difference between seeing 'dead' caverns versus living caverns. This is a living cavern! You do not stay and linger... More

My granddaughter and I bought the combo package. Our favorite part was the Hidden Passages with Megan. We took the 9 am tour and it was just the three of us. There are lots of steps, 99% humidity, and plenty of places where water drips on your head. But the views are breathtaking. It's well worth your time and money.

Family trip to the caverns. As we were close by we thought we would stop in for a look. Awesome place, the tour was excellent and the guide was knowledgable. Thoroughly enjoyed, but not a place for those with a claustrophobic disposition.
