As your eyes adjust to the low light, you will begin to see remarkable sites, dancing shadows, and feel a sense of mystery looking into the darkened path ahead. The Ruby Falls Lantern Tour is not only a visually stimulating experience but also a storytelling trip.

The highlight of the tour is at Ruby Falls, as the waterfall is illuminated using a lantern and pulley system.
