Spring Break Safari: Cave Explorer

What if you could. . .

Speleologist-Header. . . venture underground and be a Cave Explorer inside a deep cavern at Ruby Falls on Lookout Mountain? Journey deep inside the cave’s mysterious chambers and listen to tales of folklore and history while learning about rocks and geology and viewing amazing rock formations.

Another name for a cave explorer is speleologist – someone who studies caves, their history, make-up structure, physical properties and how they change over time. As you journey deep underground to Ruby Falls, use your Safari Guide to discover the answers to questions during your cave and waterfall tour. This is a recreational activity of exploring a cave, also known as caving and spelunking. You will be dazzled as your guide shares tales of folklore and history and teaches you about the rocks and geology throughout the cave’s mysterious chambers. Ruby Falls is America’s deepest cave accessible to the public and has the tallest underground waterfall!
