In 1928, Leo Lambert and a team of excavators found a breathtaking waterfall located over 1,120 feet below the surface of Lookout Mountain in Chattanooga, TN. Lambert named the falls after his wife, Ruby, and opened the area as a public attraction in 1930. Today, Ruby Falls welcomes thousands of visitors each year. Come tour the falls for yourself and see why this unique attraction has been one of the best things to do in Chattanooga for over 80 years.

Ruby Falls is the nation's largest and deepst waterfall open to the public. Hundreds of gallons of water rush over by the minute and amaze visitors.

After your visit to the cave, spend more time enjoying the view from our Lookout Mountain Tower, visit the gift shops or grab a bite to eat in Ruby's Kitchen.

Adjacent to Ruby Falls, the ZIPstream Aerial Adventure Course is an adventure above the rest made up of suspending obstacle courses high in the treetops!
