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.

Have not been here in over 20 yrs. Hard to find a place to park. Took the self guided tour while waiting for other tour to begin. This was actually the beginning of the historic tour but you were only allowed to go so far. It used to be the one tour covered everything, now they split it up into... More

At Mammoth Cave, we chose to take the Historical tour - 2 miles in 2 hours. This tour involves 500 steps uip and down and many walkways tilted up and down, so, it requires some average conditioning. It does not have stalactites nor stalagmites, so there is little definition to see. The ranger only stopped 3 times to talk -... More

They definitely got an adrenaline rush from the... More

C R were very good while we were there. It was my first time and being 77 years old, it may not happen again. We were discouraged from bringing a camera. After our zip line tour, we got to see our pictures taken by the new system. We were told the pictures would be emailed to us. My wife received... More

TREMENDOUS! Great zip line excursion with 30 teens. Gary and crew were super, very professional, safe, encouraging and funny with the kids. The platform drop was a treat. The swing was something to do before launch, uh lunch. Highly recommend.

We went on the "Historic Tour" and learned a lot. Cave was very different than I imagined. Very very BIG open areas and then all of a sudden got smaller and tight. Guide was excellent and I liked that there was a Park Ranger in the back to make sure no one got left behind. Felt VERY safe that way... More
