  • It's a great place to hike. You can do a two-hour hike or 4 hours. I did the two-hour hike and then head over to pick us up and bring us back to our cars. We parked at the parking lot on the corner of...  more »

  • A one stop shop for outdoor activities!!! The tour starts at the Wonder Cave. Explore the Balcones Fault Line Cave, "the only real earthquake cave open for viewing". Long ago this cave was formed with a powerful earthquake that split part of this region by internally cracking apart. Now guided tours are chock full of geological stories of Earth's history. Fossilized prehistoric life can be found encased in the many strata formations, huge boulders suspended mid-air, and even prehistoric paintings that mankind made when they very likely too up residence inside the cave at some point in history. These are just part of the spectacular and rare sites the cave offers. At the end of the Wonder Cave you will exit via elevator and end up at the top of Tejas Observation Tower. This Tower, in addition to housing a museum of its own, is a great look out to observe the dramatic shifting during the Earthquake. Once your down from the observation tower catch a ride on the Express Train and Splash through the cascading waterfall of Mystery Mountain on your way into the Texas Wildlife Petting Park. All sort of animals will come up to the train to feed right out of your hand! At last but certainly not least, visit the Anti-Gravity House "where things that go up do not always come down and water runs uphill", and even you will seem to be defying the laws of gravity!!!
  • Very friendly staff and plenty of fun stuff to do. Definitely more fit for families with children between 3 and 12. The cave portion is definitely tighter and steeper than one would like while carrying a baby... trust me. The train ride takes you through their wildlife area where you see emus, peacocks, goats, and deer (which you can feed).
  • I've been to several caves in Texas this was the funnest one!! It is a dry cave so people can touch all the rocks. There are some narrow passes which made it feel like you were in a cave. Our tour guide Macy was funny. Wonder world was fun I'd go back again.
  • There are many steps, I think 200, going into the cave and many of them are high, as much as 24 inches. The day we were there the elevator to leave the cave was not working. We started in and quickly realized my wife would not be able to get back out so did not finish the trip. Be careful if you can not maneuver many steps, some of them up to your waist in height. I don't know how they would have gotten her our with the elevator not working. They did not give a discount for the elevator not functioning and thus leaving part of the tour, going up in the tower, unfinished.
  • We arrived 20 minutes before they opened and were advised they were full for the day. Nothing on the website showed you had to book in advance. Very disappointed in the sub par customer service. You might call in advance to see if they have room for the tours. Not sure how you would do that. Taking my money elsewhere. It's a shame. My parents took me here when in was a kid and I was doing the same with my kids.
