CaveSim at Ruby Falls June 6 - 8, Ruby Falls guests will have the unique opportunity to experience CaveSim, a simulated cave that teaches the importance of caving safely and softly; without harming caves, causing personal injury, or hurting other cavers. The realistic simulator uses science, technology, engineering and math to demonstrate best-practice caving skills interactively. Crawl through the 60-foot, multi-level passage while the CaveSim computer monitors when formations are bumped or brushed. Each explorer earns a final score based on how successfully they safely navigated the simulated cave journey.
