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.)

We got a rainy day in Texas on holidays so took advantage of touring this Cavern. Wow! it was quite a experience and one everyone should do if around San Antonio. Well worth the trip for all ages.

While not the most impressive cave structure, it is still quite pretty. Plus it is easy to walk though. The grounds are nice and there is a Maze which costs a little extra. Was a nice day out.

This is a good tour, steep descent into the cave down to 180' so it is not for the handicapped or unfit.

The walk can be steep but not bad at all. It is a great place to visit with the kids and let them see what Texas has to offer.

This was a great tour. They also have trails to walk while you wait for the tour to start. Just a warning - you need to be a good shape for this one! The steps to go down into the caverns are a little tough - steep and can get slippery. This area is much smaller than Carlsbad Caverns in... More

First off, get there EARLY or you will wait in line for a very looooong time! Second, stick close to the tour guide, or you will NOT be able to hear what they are telling you...don't lag behind! The guides do not speak loudly or wear microphones for obvious reasons (echoes). Third, be prepared to do a lot of walking... More

We loved our discovery tour with Nick. This was our first cavern tour and we were not sure what to expect but found the tour very informative and we took lots of amazing photos. Some of the walkways are steep and a bit slippery but we had no issues on our 60 year old legs.

Short trip from San Antonio, near New Braunfels and Canyon Lake, TX. Well worth the trip. They have 2 tours. Discovery Tour (recommended) and Adventure Tour ( only if you want to crawl through tight holes). Tour guides are very knowledgeable. Also there is a wildlife safari park next door which is also a pretty cool thing to do. Fun... More

We have been on other cave tours but this is definitely one of the best organized that we have seen. The site is easy to find, lots of accessible parking, a large, clean visitor center and very friendly staff. The walk itself is well organized on paved pathways and the tour takes you deep into the cave and really allows... More
