This is a great activity and .is very reasonably priced. Adults-8.50, Under 12- 6.50 and Seniors (62)-7.50. It is guided tour into the caverns. Our guide knew the information about caverns. Our 9 year old grandson said it was his favorite part of the trip.

Hi Linda. First of all, weighing 250+ pounds is not that big. Second, rather than people guessing about this topic, I would directly email Linville Caverns (or call them) using the following "Contact Us" information. But I... More
