I thought the tram trip through the cavern was very interesting. It could use a little more lighting but it was neat. The history of the cavern was surprising. Hard to believe that the huge cavern is right under a big part of Louisville. Lots of people were doing the zip line which looks fun. It is worth checking out... More

On a recent girls weekend 11 of us decided to go zip lining underground thru the caves. It was my first time & it was awesome. Could not have done it without Robinson & Emily. Great guides and very enjoyable!! They were great since we ranged from 21 to 82! Ask for Robinson!!! Two thumbs up!!!

Our 12 & 14 year olds thoroughly enjoyed this for the youngest's birthday. It was a little expensive, but they got the full 2 hours in. I would recommend going earlier. It started filling up while we were there and they found it easier to maneuver the course when it was a little less crowded. We didn't see many signs... More

Took my Wife and Kids to the Mega Cavern as a last minute excursion. Had a lot of fun on the tour. Guide was a little hard to hear due to the speaker system not working the best but other than that it was good.

Me and my family did the zip lines and they were amazing and it took about 2 hours. We had the greatest tour guides anyone could ask for Squilliam and Robinson. My favorite zip line was the cavern one.(I forget what it is called)

David and Chris were awesome guides for a high school Senior Trip. I was a sponsoring teacher and was a little reluctant but we had an amazing time!
