Hidden River Cave / American Cave Museum
If you're looking for family adventure above and below ground, Hidden River Cave is the place for you! Located right in the middle of the historic small town of Horse Cave, Hidden River's cave tours include a trip across the new world's longest underground swinging bridge to the region's largest dome room that had been closed to the public for 75 years. Come and zip across the cave's beautiful sinkhole entrance or rappel 75 feet from the surface to the mouth of the cave! Then travel 150 feet underground to the river's edge on either a 1-hour guided walking tour or a longer, more challenging wild caving adventure. You become a cave explorer for the day as you negotiate the upstream crawlways and canyons on Hidden River's caving adventure tour. Scrambling along the riverbanks, you are sure to get down and muddy! Duck walking and bear crawling are required! See mysterious cave animals and sparking cave formations along the way. This tour is ideal for family, school, scout, church and friends' groups. For more information, see www.hiddenrivercave.com. Combo packages that include the zip line rappel and cave tour are available. For pricing and reservations, call 270.786.1466, 9 am to 5 pm (central time) year round.
