Lower Viewing Area Tour

Fee is per person, ages 4 and up. Due to the bat’s sensitivity to noise disturbance, children age 3 and under are not allowed at the lower viewing area. This area, including the trail to it, meet ADA accessibility guidelines. Purchase tickets online or by calling (512) 389-8900 before visiting. We do not sell tickets on site.


A close-up view of the emergence is one of the most unique experiences in nature. The flapping of millions of tiny wings is usually audible and often creates a light wind that can be felt by visitors in the lower viewing area. Many visitors also enjoy listening to the soft clicking sounds the bats use to communicate with each other. Lower viewing area tours are conducted Thursday through Sunday, May through October. An educational program is given about bats, with an emphasis on the fascinating life history of the Brazilian free-tailed bat (Tadarida brasiliensis mexicana).
