Crystal City Underground
In place of what once was a sand mine, Crystal City Underground has transformed more than 6 million square feet—approximately 200 acres—of sub-surface space into a climate-controlled entertainment facility. With 30- to 40-foot ceilings, thick pillars carved out of rock, and a lake, it presents visitors with a multifaceted underground experience, one that already includes sand volleyball, disc golf, and weekend barge rides. Future plans for Crystal City have it adding more recreational amenities en route to becoming a subterranean cultural and convention center.
What some people are buzzing about:
“Definitely use their website directions, NOT gps. Great fun and a wonderful retreat on a hot summer day.”
“It was a really cool experience but the volleyball wasn't available nor was the kids mining experience which is ultimately why we went. CALL AHEAD.”
