There is a famous adventure game called Colossal Cave Adventure, produced in the '70s. It was the first interactive, text based adventure game, simulatin the exploration of Colossal Cave in Kentucky.

The "real" Colossal Cave is an actual cave within the Mammoth Cave - Flint Ridge system in Kentucky. However, the part of the system called Colossal Cave gave its name to the game, but most of the cave system described in the game is a reproduction of nearby Bedquilt Cave.
