Natural Bridge Caverns Discovery Tour was developed with two main goals in mind: preservation of the cavern environment and comfort of its guests. The result is one of the world premier show caverns, and one of the most popular attractions in the Lonestar State.
Explorers discovered the caverns in March of 1960. Since then, the huge underground chambers are dramatically lit with a state-of-the-art illumination system using both light and darkness to enhance the experience.
Winding passages are highly decorated with extremely rare formations, unusually long “soda straw” stalactites, waves of “cave ribbon” and a profusion of intriguing “welt and turnip shields.”
We’re not sure what all that means, but it sounds serious – seriously fun.
Six tours are offered: the Discovery Tour, Illuminations Tour, Lantern Tour, Mining Company and Rock Shop, Adventure Tour and Watchtower Challenge.
