Overview

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.)

The caverns themselves were fantastic, but the experience was spoiled by the constant desire to get more $ out of customers. They tried to sell entry to a small maze, and held up the tour by about 20 minutes just so they could take each...More

We stopped at the Natural Bridge Caverns on our way down from Austin and so glad that we did. The caverns were amazing and a true natural wonder.

Be prepared to walk up and down stairs. Also it is very humid inside. 70 degrees with 99% humidity makes a feel like temperature of about 85 degrees. I wish the tours were a little smaller and more often. The kids really enjoyed the mining...More

No, the tour is not accessible. There are about 100 -150 stair steps and other parts of the pathway are steep and wet.
