We were in Louisville for a business conference, and used our free time to visit the cavern to zip line! There were four of us - ranged from age 24 to 69. We had a great time, it was easy to maneuver. Our guides, Carrie and Jacob, were full of entertaining bits and dad jokes, which we loved. They were... More

This place is unique, creative and the temp is constant so the weather is always predictable. Underground zip lines, Christmas lights that you drive through with the entire family and several special events during the year. A neat and unique place to visit.

I went with family for my granddaughter's birthday. I didn't know if I would enjoy this type of activity or if I'd be able to handle the physical aspects of the course. What was I thinking, I lasted longer than the teens and we all had a great time. Employees that we encountered were kind, courteous, and happy, yes happy.... More

This is such a unique setting for a zip line course, and it was so much fun. The element of dark adds a different type of adrenaline to the tour. I had such a good time with Savannah and JT...they were awesome guides! I have been zip lining in many different environments and settings, but nothing like this! I recommend... More

Thank you for your review Janet! It's true the cavern stays a constant 58* all year long so we do recommend a jacket or sweater. We're happy you had a great experience on your visit to the Mega cavern! More

Both guides were very professional and though zip-lining for the first time, felt safe in their hands. Both were humorous, especially Paige. Cameron was very knowledgeable and provided historical and geological tidbits. Five stars!

Went today with my cousins from CA. Thoroughly enjoyed zip lining! Had a good time with Ben and Carrie as our guides. They're very good with interacting with all ages from what I could tell. Very funny too! Ask about the Big Papa, haha, best one!
