“With the flip of a switch, one of Chattanooga’s oldest and best known attractions takes on an new face.”  Since Park Canyon Apartments are so close to events in and around Chattanooga, it’s easy to plan fun and unique things for friends and family to do.  Just hop on I-75 and head north.

The Ruby Falls Lantern Tour experience allows visitors a rarely seen view deep within Lookout Mountain. The tour begin with a 260-foot elevator ride into the mountain. Upon arrival, there will be no staged lighting in the cave. Select members of the group will be equipped with a small hand-held electric lantern and the tour guide will have a fueled inspector’s lantern.

The Ruby Falls Lantern Tour is not only a visually stimulating experience but it also a storytelling trip. As mysterious shadows dance on underground walls, your guide will share tales of folklore, stories of unexplained phenomena, as well as details on the rich history and geology of the Ruby Falls Cave.  The highlight of the tour is at Ruby Falls, as the waterfall is illuminated through the use of a lantern and pulley system.
