    How many have ever been to Carlsbad Caverns? I was there as a kid and we ate in the cafeteria. I took my kids there. I swear its the same food there after 30 years....

    Cool place for sure.

    We went at dusk to see the bats come out. Everyone is supposed to be real quiet so you don't spook them, otherwise they won't all flush at once and instead will just trickle out a few at a time.

    There was a couple with a baby that would not stop crying. This little guy was screaming his head off and instead of just walking him out so as not to ruin the event for the whole crowd, they stayed put and the bats never showed. Very dissapointing. :crying:

    "You want to get your brat out of here?"

    Then again, I'm the guy who yells out the window at screaming children. So, yeah.

    Does the food still come in the plain white box? I have not been there in over 30 years either

    I had friends working there in High School. CHS '84.

    Occasionally some of the chow didn't make it all the way to the bottom on the elevator. Remnants tossed out the roof hatch supported a little ecosystem of their own in the bottom of the shaft. Ick. :upeyes:

    Just a fun trivia fact: Carlsbad is what the Germans call Karlovy Vary, a spa town located in Western Czech Republic where this place got its name.

    I was there in 1985 and thought it was a pretty cool to find an eating spot and a restroom so deep inside a cave.
