CaveSim virtual tunneling combines a mock cave with the virtual, interactive elements of a video game.

It is somewhat difficult for someone that wants to burrow underground to explore what lives beneath the grass for the first time to find a good place to try it out when they don't know what to look for. Caving can also be a dangerous pastime, and the obstacle course gives newbies a chance to get a taste of the sport without worrying about getting hurt or hurting other people.

The course has been designed to resemble an underground cavern and tracks the tunnelers time and the amount of obstacles hit on their journey. This preps them to be more apt to maneuver around a real cave if they decide to take up the sport in real life.
