Lackawanna Coal Mine Tour Questions & Answers

Poughkeepsie, NY

I am quite tall. The walking part of the tour, does it have low ceilings and walkways? Walking half bent over isn't my " cup of tea". Thanks.

I am 6'1". I was ok for the most part. There are a few areas that are a little low but as a tall guy I sometimes get used to it.

No bending over in this place. The ceilings are very tall!

As I recall, most of the time is riding in a shaft car. There might be a short walk, but I'm sure it will accommodate you. We had someone 6 ft. with us & he was fine.

Enjoy the tour!

I happen to be short, however I went with a tall friend and she and a few other tall people in the group were fine.

There will be some lower spots if you are over 6'6", but in general, you should be okay. If you are over 6'6", then you might be stooping a bit, but there are higher spots within the mine where you should be able to stand up straight.
