    Most of the Cave tours include tight spaces. Some have restrictions of 42 inches....if there is any part of your body that exceeds 42 inches, you will not be allowed on that particular tour. Some tours include a walk through Fat Man's Misery, which is a winding trail through a tight squeeze...and ends up going through Tall Man's which the "ceiling" gets lower and lower. The tight sqeeze and low ceiling gets uncomfortable for a minute! It doesn't take too long to get through, but it depends on how quickly the people in front of you are going. Keep this in mind if you have a fear of enclosed places.
