If you're from San Antonio or planning on visiting the city sometime soon, there are many popular spots to check out that may come to mind right off the bat. Natural Bridge Caverns near San Antonio has likely made the top of the list for their enchanting underground caverns, but what many don't know is that you can find just as much fun above the ground!
Natural Bridge Caverns announced yesterday that their newest outdoor attractions, the Twisted Trails Zip Rails and Ropes Course, are reopening on Saturday, June 6.
The Twisted Trails Tykes and Twisted Trails Climbing will be reopening on Saturday as well.
After first opening back in January, the zip line attraction didn't have much time in the spotlight before the entire park had to temporarily close.
In less than a day, the newest park additions will finally be welcoming thrillseekers of all ages once again.
For those interested in stopping by and staying for as long as possible, Natural Bridge is open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. all week long.
You could even fill your day with a cave tour or two as well!
The Instagram post above reads, "We’re ready to welcome you back! The brand new Twisted Trails will be opening this Saturday!"
"Come soar high above the hill country and test yourself on our new obstacles!"
Now that's the kind of invitation everyone loves receiving, especially during the summer.
Tickets for the Twisted Trails attractions range from $7.99 to $24.99 in price.
You can decide whether you'd like to fly high, take on an obstacle course, or challenge your rock climbing skills all in the same day.
Twisted Trails' Reopening
When: Saturday, June 6
Address: 26495 Natural Bridge Caverns Rd., San Antonio, TX
Why You Need To Go: You'll finally get the chance to fly high above San Antonio.
The bridge, which hangs over Wurzbach Parkway, was put into place to connect the once divided Phil Hardberger Park and offer animals and people a safe way to cross the busy road.
The bridge will also be an amazing community hangout spot, as it connects a park that features multiple amenities such as a playground, dog park and basketball courts.
The Tobin bridge will also be connecting over 7 miles of nature trails, which will undoubtedly lead to a hike that is truly unlike any other in the state.
Of course, the opening day comes with multiple restrictions to help prevent the spread of COVID-19, including limited bathroom usage and social-distancing.

We need it now more than ever, so why wait?

In addition to the incredible experience of simply walking up and down the path, you can also consider participating in numerous special holiday events that take place on the river.
One of these events is the "Caroling Boats," where you and your gang of friends can rent a boat and take it through the river while singing your favorite holiday tunes for all of your loyal fans.
The best part about the river walk is that not only is it open 24-hours a day, it's also completely FREE, although you might find it difficult to not stop and get some famous San Antonio tacos along the way.
