If you are fat --you will be miserable on this tour. Go on one of the shorter and less restrictive size tours.

We enjoyed the History of Mammoth Cave Your when half way through we got to the Fat Man’s Misery. Besides the cave being about 28 inches wide and narrow, the ceiling was low. I am 5’3 size 6; and had to hunch over and walk sideways at some points. Children had an easier time here.

This is certainly a crowd favorite of Mammoth Cave since the cave opened 200 years ago. It is an experience like no other at Mammoth or for that matter any cave. Most of Mammoth's passageways are just that Mammoth. However, in this small section you will twist and turn through some of the tightest sections. For the most part the tightness is only waist down but it is narrow enough that you will be touching both sides of the passage.

In fact, this is one of the few places, you are allowed to touch the caves. Any spelunker knows touch the cave as little as possible to prevent impact from humans. However, here you have two hundred years of finger print formations that are truly part of the cave experience. For me this is a MUST DO, especially if you have children with you. They will love this section.

Again it is the fun part of the tour and the part your party will be talking about long after you leave Mammoth Cave NP. It is a cave Must See.

The walk through very tight thigh high spaces, as the guide said, is something you either hate or love. I hated it since I would have rather not passed through several long minutes of tight space between rocks touched by many people during a pandemic. I also do not like low ceilings and due to my height, it felt extra tight. My husband and son however loved every minute.

So it's only really bad in two little tiny turns, the rest is low and narrow, but you can do it.
By the time you are thinking about freaking out, you are out - and in the big open area where the bathrooms are - Easy Peasy!

I booked a couple months prior to arrival, got there 30 mins to pick up tickets. Checked out gift shops and got my NP stamps while we waited! Def recommend eating something and using the bathroom before the tour. We listened to a ranger at the patio for a free "talk" as he was answering questions and then he went to prepare for a tour, which happened to be our extended historic tour! Ranger Aaron was informative and comical throughout the tour. He gave clear instructions and expectations of what the tour entails before we descended. The pace was easy, but he did ask the slower folks to be up front, versus the back, due to the slinky toy effect. We stayed in the middle/end typically. The walkway was dry, but still recommend hiking boots if you've them because when you exit the caves, you have to step into the mats to wash off any traces of white nose fungus that causes a syndrome in bats. No animals seen in the cave, and the extended historic tour gave you 15 mins longer to see the TB huts (compared to the historic tour, you don't see these). I picked the extended vs regular historic tour due to the small group size (60 vs 100). It was still a full tour, but not too bad, until we got to the narrow path where it was single file line. I really enjoyed learning about the history and stories he gave. He also showed the cave by lantern and also in total darkness by the coffin. That was eerie but very neat. Toward the end of the tour, where we had to descend up a couple flight of steps, I felt a little queasy but not sure if it was being in the cave for at least 2+ hr. I was very happy to see sunlight and "fresh" air when we came out of the cave. There were another ranger at the end of the tour to lock up or turn off lights when we visited a location. Definitely worth the drive if you are in the area or even in Nashville, we drove up 1.5hr to attend the tour. I wish we had time to do another tour but there will be other caves to visit (Carlsbad) and other things to see. It is a great place if you never been to a cave and want a moderate walking tour. Thanks!

Fat Man's Misery is one of the more memorable parts of the Historic Tour I took. It's more of a leg room issue, and at a couple spots, turning sideways solved that issue. I do not recommend if you get claustrophobic, that's for sure. Same with Tall Man's. This is the park the kids will talk about.

We just took a trip here with our 1.5 and 3 year old. From the moment we arrived they were all smiles. We loved the walk seeing all the huge dinosaurs and reading information about them. The playground with covered picnic benches was the perfect place to stop for a meal.

The fossil dig was a slight let down, I wouldn’t pay extra but for those where it’s included it’s worth it. The fossils were tiny and of course hard to explain that they could only take 3 tiny pieces. Also it only goes every 1.5 hours so check the schedule as soon as you arrive.

All in all a fairly cheap day full of fun. We stayed a little over 3 hours

This area is indeed tight but my husband along with other larger gentleman on our tour got through fine. You have to side step through at least that’s the easiest way but nothing like I imagined it might be. It’s only a short area.
