This was a well planned adventure. It allowed one to have the thrill of being a kid again for a few hours. There was no rush and the place was clean and well run. The thrills where many and a adventure worth taking. A little pricey for the time spent but still worth while. Safety was a big concern and... More

This drive through cave light show is always a hit with my kids. They ask to go every year. They have tons of lights lining both sides of the winding roads throughout the cave. The temperature is always nice inside the cave, even in December. The line isn't too bad during the week. Unsure about the weekend. The drive takes... More

Go see the Christmas light display here - it is truly unique! The cost is $30/car. As you drive through there is so much to see and different music plays throughout. We got there about an hour after it opened and it was already pretty crowded. We only had to wait about 20-25 minutes for our turn to go through.... More

My boyfriend has wanted to do this for 2 yrs and we finally planned it into our vacation. What a great experience!! I was really apprehensive about doing the zip line but JT and Chandra REALLY made it all worthwhile! They are both very well skilled at it and explain everything - even add abit of humor along the way.... More

The Mega Cavern Christmas Light display is one of the main reasons we drove out to Louisville for a long weekend and it did not disappoint. We got there about an hour after it opened and had to wait about 20 minutes before it was our turn to drive through the cavern. The entire system, from lining up the cars... More

Our guides were Max and Kyle. They zipped us through Hell and helped us cross the treacherous Larrys Lagoon on perilous suspension bridges all the while pointing out the ancient petroglyphs. This was a great experience and the guys were good hosts. If you havnt been you need to make the time and have the experience.

This is an attraction we used to visit yearly. We hadn't gone for a couple of years and had family in town Thanksgiving week so we took them. Our family was duly impressed, it is a nice display. However, for locals the price is way high in my opinion. Since the last time we visited the attraction the price has... More

About half an hour to take our tour bus through the underground maze. Kids will squeal with joy. Music piped in on our PA system including Twelve Days of Christmas timed almost perfectly. (What ever happened to Lords A Leaping???) FUN and not crowded on Mon eve Dec 7. Bet it's crazy on weekends.
