Wonder World

1000 Prospect St. | San Marcos, TX 78666 | 512-392-3760

(30 miles S of Austin, TX)

 

Known as the first show cave in Texas and reportedly the only commercially operated dry-formed cave in the United States, this 100+ year-old ‘slice’ of Texas geography was formed by a major earthquake along the Balcones Fault Line.

 

When you complete your tour through this crack in the earth’s surface, exit by the “Stratavator” and ride high to the Tejas Observation Tower or turn topsy-turvy at the anti-gravity house where everything is backwards and the water flows uphill.  Board the train through the waterfalls of Mystery Mountain on your way to Texas Wildlife Petting Park or shop at the Mexico World Market.
