At Mammoth Cave Adventures we offer a 5 line canopy zip tour, that offers 2 skybridges and an outdoor adventure for the whole family. Our lines vary from approximately 120 yards to 300 yards long, they vary in speeds, lengths and heights. We have 6 decks/platforms that differ in heights from about 20 feet to a two tier deck that reaches 44 feet tall. Our primary canopy zip tour takes you from deck to deck in the treetops on a course guided by a minimum of two certified guides for a fun and exciting adventure that will be sure to get your adrenaline pumping. Our tour time takes approximately one hour to one and a half hours.We also offer a secondary course aimed at individuals under 100 lbs, this is a 3 line course with lines that average 120 yards in length. This course also intersects with the primary course and includes a skybridge and ladder climb for those younger adventure seekers.

The whole set up-gear, lines & staff were very reassuring of a superb experience. We started nervous & ended the day with a craving for more...we will be heading back and... More

A friend and I got the info about this place and zip lining, from the desk at Mammoth Cave. After arriving and getting over the nerves... This was the coolest adventure we both had in a long time. The guides we had was great and cared about safety. They also was what made our experience great and rememberable. I different... More

We wanted to go zip lining and horse back riding, and after some studying on the local places to go, we chose Mammoth Cave Adventures. And what a great choice it was. The lines are fun, the staff is great, and the horse back riding is amazing. So much fun. Definitely going back on our next trip in the spring.

We have four youngish kids (6,8,9 &11) that wanted to experience "real" horse back riding beyond their experiences riding ponies at fairs, etc. When we walked up with so many inexperienced riders they told us this trail is really for those that are familiar with riding already but they would make it work. Josh and Sam were amazing with our... More

There's no real reason to even be in the area unless visiting Mammoth Cave, but what a surprise. I haven't been on an authentic concrete alpine slide since I was 12 (some 30 years ago) and at $5 per ride including the trip up the ski lift the price was probably the same, too. I don't know what this place... More

I thought we were just doing this 1x but it was a 5x course with 3 swinging walkways. Soooo glad we did this. Great place for a 1st time. Wes and Nathan were very patient,... More

We booked our Historic Tour through the mammoth cave website to ensure we were able to get the tour and time we wanted to get. This tour has always been my favorite, because it is a little longer than the others and there is a lot of history about the cave system to hear and learn about. I would recommend... More

Very confident & friendly staff. Safety was ensued in all aspects of the course. Following directions is a must with this type of activity. It is kind of pricey, but it was a good time for us which was priceless..... A must do!

We always stop at Mammoth caves and do a tour when we can. Unfortunately this time we chose the Historic tour. It was long, which we were excited about BUT not very good. All you do is constant walking and only stop about 5 times for a brief info talk. There were no great stalagmites/totes to view either. I definitely... More
