Bat Chaser in action!
Around she goes!
Big smiles with every trip
Fun and excited
Indiana Caverns Bat Chaser combines zip lining and free falling in a family friendly experience. Our suspended, single rail zip coaster soars past tree tops and over the rolling surface of southern Indiana’s cave country. The thrill is somewhat like hang gliding or riding in an under slung gravity-powered coaster.
The Bat Chaser is only the second ride of its kind to be built in the United States and the first in the Midwest. All riders are fitted with a full body harness. After a safety check, riders take off from atop a 50-foot tower overlooking Indiana Caverns and then twist and turn 603 feet through a grove of large trees ending up back near the base of their original starting point.
10:30 am is opening time and generally the morning hours are slower. Noon to 3 pm is the most popular ride time on weekends and waits may occur during that time. The Bat Chaser is closed when it rains and or when lightening is present.
Three ride bands are available on weekdays and most weekend mornings at 10:30. Extended 3 ride hours are planned for the future.
A free-fall drop option combined with the Bat Chaser will be available for groups only by advance reservations.
*Tandem option not available at this time. Closed toe shoes recommended, flip flops and slide sandals not allowed.
