Mammoth Onyx Is A fun 30 MinutesTrip Using Flashlights

Walking the cave with flashlight and helmet with light is a really neat way to travel through a cave. Included in the price of Kentucky Down Under ticket.

I really enjoyed listening to the story of the caves, not to mention how beautiful it is. We took the 2 and a half hour tour, it was not to hard' and they give you time to sit and chill for a minute while you get to hear about the cave.

I took this tour with my 5 and 8 year old daughters. This was their first experience in a cave and it was perfect for them: not too long, not too dangerous, interesting story about the cave's discovery. The girls really enjoyed it and the tour guide was full of information about the cave and very helpful and friendly. There... More

This was nice and suitable for all ages but a very short experience... There were a Lot of steps, not great for someone with knee or back problems. My toddler (2) LOVED this and wanted to go right back in!

A truly great and cooling experience! In the middle of Kentucky Down Adventure Zoo and admission included with that was a great added bonus. Our guide was great and was a very enjoyable experience. Only if you are a six footer caution several low spots and tight squeezes. Great for the kids and kids at heart.

This is a great place to go as a family. If you can avoid going when it is cold, or rainy you will have a much better opportunity to see all the animals. We only had one day, so had to take the semi-cold temps and a bit of rain. Cave is really pretty, and a nice short walk for... More
