Overnight Tour

Skylight Sleepover

Paper Bottom

Time: Overnight

Age Requirement: 11+

Group Size : Groups of 10+

You can walk a mile in someone else’s shoes or spend an entire evening in Aaron Higgenbotham’s — the cave’s first known explorer.

You’ll squeeze through tight passageways, feel the pop of the mud against your rubber sole on Bubblegum Alley, and traverse high-ladder climbs to places you’ve never seen before. But this nighttime adventure doesn’t stop there.

Much like Higgenbotham, you feel the cool earth beneath your back as you drift off and dream of the day’s high climbs and grand formations.

Pack a sleeping bag and some extra money for dinner — the cave will take care of the rest.
