An HEAV-Sponsored Event
Discover Eastern America’s largest and most popular caverns at on of Virginia’s most popular homeschool field trip locations. Luray Caverns, a U.S. Natural Landmark, is noted for the profuse variety of formations and unsurpassed natural color. From well-lighted, paved walkways explore cathedral-sized rooms with ceilings 10 stories high, filled with towering stone columns and crystal-clear pools.
Hear the haunting sounds of the “Great Stalacpipe Organ,” the world’s largest musical instrument. This unique, one-of-a-kind instrument uses stalactites covering 3 ½ acres of surrounding caverns to produce tones of symphonic quality when electronically tapped by rubber-tipped mallets.
Experience the history of America in the “Car & Carriage Caravan,” an exhibit featuring more than 140 items relating to transportation including cars, carriages, coaches and costumes dating from 1725. Special rates also available for Gem Mining Sluice, the Garden Maze, and the Rope Adventure Course (weather permitting)
