FAQ

What’s Included

Our adventure partner, Lost World Caverns, will provide expert safety instruction and all the necessary safety gear, including helmets, lights, gloves, and knee pads.

What to Wear and Bring

No special equipment is necessary besides long pants, long sleeves, and the required closed-toed shoes (preferably a sturdy pair of boots). The caverns stay damp and at a cool 55 degrees, so be sure to dress accordingly. You’re guaranteed to get dirty and wet as you crawl your way through, so we recommend bringing a change of clothes and a bag to put all of your muddy items in.
