Cavern is man-made (former mine) so I didn't expect too much - but it turned out to be very cool. Zip guides Amber & Joe were great - very safety conscious. Ziplining is full-service, .i.e. no hand braking, so make sure you grab that rope...More

We are going to be there on July 1st and 2nd. Are there any openings on those days for three to go zip lining and one tram?

I am unable to answer this. You would have to call to inquire. They do book up quick.

HI! My husband and I would like to visit the caverns and buy the zip line and possibly the Quest tours. Are there any coupons available yet? I've looked on Groupon and there aren't any available yet. Is there another source I can go to for a coupon? Also, I noticed you offer a military discount, thank you so much! My husband is a retired National Guard veteran. Would he qualify for that discount?
