Q: Is Bluegrass Underground handicapped accessible?
A: Cumberland Caverns is not handicapped accessible. As a natural attraction, the pathways are considered semi-strenuous, with slopes and uneven surfaces. The path to the cave is 300 yards. It is approximately 350 yards from the cave entrance to the Volcano Room. The cave path has many ups and downs with the steepest slope descending 30’ into the Volcano Room. Bluegrass Underground is an adventure destination concert venue that is unfortunately not suited for all music fans. If you are in a wheelchair, require the use of a walker, or have knee, leg, feet, heart, breathing, or any other conditions that will not allow for over exertion, you should not attend. Cumberland Caverns does have vehicles for use in carrying equipment in and out of the cave and for emergency use only. These vehicles are not insured for the transport of customers and will not be used for such. Customers who have bought tickets for Bluegrass Underground concerts and are not able to make the walk to the Volcano Room may have their ticket price refunded to them.
