Higgenbotham’s Revenge – Overnight Spelunking (Caving)

Higgenbotham’s Revenge – Overnight Spelunking Adventure

Higgenbotham’s Revenge – Overnight Adventure Tour is recommended for experienced explorers and thrill seekers in good shape.

Difficulty Level: Challenging
Time: Overnight
Age Requirement: 11 and up
Plan Ahead: 10 Days Notice Required

What To Expect:
Follow the historic route of the discoverer, Aaron Higgenbotham. The tour begins with a 1½ mile hike to the Higgenbotham Entrance. You will encounter narrow passageways, ladders (some up to 20 feet high) and muddy trails. Experience the passageways that are said to have “turned Higgenbotham’s hair white” before he made it out. Plus spend the night underground, just like Aaron himself, when you camp out in the 10-Acre Room. Of course, unlike Aaron, you’ll have all the comforts a true caveman/cavewoman would expect, including fully functional underground restroom facilities. In the morning your group will be treated to a continental breakfast in the cave.

The Daily Walking Tour is also included in this Overnight experience.
