Public Event Pricing
Simple and reasonable
inspires love of learning
An event your visitors will never forget.
If your organization cares about providing truly memorable experiences that educate the public, CaveSim is a perfect partner for you. Our stated goal is to make learning so much fun that visitors of all ages don’t realize that they’re learning. This is why each event is facilitated by passionate, highly trained educators who also happen to be talented cave explorers, inventors, and leaders. Your guests are guaranteed to have fun, but our program is also about much more than that.
The 3 most important reasons to work with us:
We’re happy to customize our program to suit your needs. Most organizations choose to have us for a full-day or multi-day event. A typical program includes:
The trailer is 24′ long, but has 60′ of cave inside. Visitors explore multiple levels using rope ladders and climbing holds. The cave is interactive – participants get scored by a computer based on how carefully they explore. See our logistics flyer for setup details.
This free-standing tower is used to teach visitors about physics, vertical cave exploration, and rescue. It packs neatly inside the cave trailer; for more info about its size, see our logistics flyer.
Cave rescue Stretcher
We bring a real cave rescue stretcher, and kids of all ages take turns being carried by staff and other visitors. This is a hands-on way for visitors to learn about cave rescue, teamwork, and communication.
This adjustable-height box is a fun way for visitors to challenge themselves. As the height gets adjusted, visitors measure the box with a tape measure to see how tight a spot they can fit through. For safety, the lid is easily lifted.
Our working cave rescue phones are a fun way to learn about circuits, waves, and electromagnetic energy. Visitors can try the phones before or after exploring the cave.
We do many demos, including carbide lamps, geology, energy and waves with waterproof speakers, and biology lessons with a real bat skeleton and guano. We’ll read the crowd and present demos that fit the audience.
How we price
It’s simple: we charge a per-day fee and a per-mile fee. Per-mile fees are shared, so the more organizations in your area that book our program, the lower your per-mile fee.
"Worth every penny"
“Writing a check to CaveSim actually put a smile on my face. If you smile when you pay for something, you know it’s worth what you paid. The CaveSim program was worth every penny that I paid for it.” Ira Yates, Executive Director, Friends of the Pecos River
