    Event Description:
    Annual "Rock of Ages" Tours Scheduled
     
    CARLSBAD, New Mexico--On November 30, December 1, 7, 8, 14, and 15 from 6 pm to 8 pm, Carlsbad Caverns National Park will present the annual "Rock of Ages" tours. On these tours, visitors will have opportunities to experience the wonders of Carlsbad Cavern and its colorful history. Dressed in historic costumes, park staff will guide visitors on a lantern-lit tour in the Big Room area of the cavern. 
     
    This park tradition gives visitors the chance to “meet” some of the men and women who helped weave the fabric of this national park. The tour will feature a re-creation of the historic "Rock of Ages Ceremony," which was regularly conducted in the Big Room from 1928 to 1944. During this portion of the tour, visitors will experience a “black out,” being immersed in total darkness, as voices fill the cavern singing the hymn “The Rock of Ages.”

    Tour tickets are $10 for adults and $5 for children under 16. The minimum age for this tour is 5. Reservations are required and limited to 25 people per tour. Tickets can be purchased beginning November 18 at 575-236-1375 or at the park’s visitor center ticket desk, open daily (except Thanksgiving Day) 8 a.m.–3:15 p.m.
