Cave Tour Accessibility
Unfortunately, due to how Crystal Cave was naturally formed we enter the cave via a series of stairs and ramps. As such the tour is not suitable for wheelchairs or walkers.
The tour consists of 7 flights of stairs and ramps. It is an hour long standing/walking tour. The tour is moderately strenuous; there are no elevators and limited seating options in the cave. There are some areas where you will need to be able to duck under lower hanging rocks. There is low lighting throughout the tour. The environment in the cave is cool (50F) and humid.
For guests that are deaf or hard of hearing Crystal Cave does have a written version of the tour script that can be taken into the cave and read from during the tour. Guests can also be provided with a head lamp to aid in the reading of the script and a pad of paper and pen for communication with the tour guide if desired.
For guests that are blind or visually impaired they can be provided with additional time as needed to navigate the tour paths. The tour guides also assist in pointing out low hanging rocks on all tours.
