Natural Bridge Caverns.

Natural Bridge Caverns

Beautiful underground caverns. Huge dinosaurs for photo ops. Claimed to be the largest underground attraction in Texas. They have a zip line, an Illumination Tour and a Hidden Passages Tour.

Next door is a massive drive-thru wildlife reserve where you can feed the animals from your car.

[Allison C, 03/05/2010]

Illumination Tour includes the dreaded "Moment of Total Darkness." The pricier Hidden Passages Tour takes 3 to 4 hours, and visitors with helmet lights are lowered by rope down a 160-ft deep shaft.
