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 really enjoyed the guide telling all about the unique features of this cavern. Not for claustrophobic or fear of darkness! Very cool place!

On our way from San Antonio to Austin we decided to stop at Natural Bridge Caverns. What a surprising gem in the middle of Texas Hill Country. The tour we took was approximately 75 minutes. Our guide, Devin, pointed out many formations and entertained us with his knowledge and wit. I had been to caverns before and always needed a... More

This was out first cave we've ever been too, and it was a good one. If you take the standard guide you get to see most of the cave except for a few darker places that are reserved for a different tour. It sucks you can't touch anything though! Apparently its a federal crime if you do

Cool place to visit with family. Lots of activities to do with kids (you do pay extra for certain things). We went during spring break and it was pretty busy. I would suggest showing up right when they open during busy seasons.

Wow! No brochure, no ad, no indication that you will have to walk strenuous walkways down and up before you pay. They let you know about the steepness of the tour just before you enter the cavern. You need to be a mountain goat to handle this tour. Wear good, gripping tennis shoes! If you have bad knees, back or... More

We have visited many caverns around the United States and this one is one of the top 5. The staff is super friendly and provided really good information about the tour and set reasonable expectations. The walk was not overly taxing and just about anyone should be able to enjoy the caverns without an issue. They advertise the temperature to... More

This is a really interesting cavern. Vast inside and lots of formations. The place is well organized and the staff is very friendly. Our tour guide was a young lady and she was very knowledgeable about the cave system and history. The other activities there (zipline and ropes course) are well done as well but a little pricey. They've spent... More

Impressive with great features like pools of water and large columns. Strenuous, wear good shoes. Hot inside, I wished I did not have to carry my big purse. Drinks avail at exit.
