The groups can be up to 12 people at a time. The guides we great!! Funny and engaging and had good stories. It went... More

I did the mega ziplines last week with Cameron and Lindsey as guides and had an amazing time! The Mega Cavern is a must do when visiting Louisville, kids as young as 7 can do the ziplines. I'm going back soon to do the ropes course, it looks awesome as well! (did I mention they are opening an underground bike... More

My family and I were in Louisville for a competition and wanted a little fun before a busy weekend and Mega Caverns was a blast. We did the ropes course and zip lines and the adventure didn't let us down. It may seem a little pricey but my entire family can't wait to go back and that alone makes the... More

I have lived in Louisville for years but never experienced the uniqueness of the megacavern until this past weekend. I would recommend the zip line and added bonus of guides Max and Kelsey's humor (and needed assistance)! Cheers to an afternoon of unexpected adventure.

Mega Quest is a great place to go to beat the winter blues. Three hours on a ropes course is some serious exercise! We've been twice and had a blast both times. This is a must do activity if you are anywhere close to Louisville!

World's only underground aerial ropes challenge course! Nothing like it! It was fun and a test of my strength and agility. Made friends and we progressed the course. Definate team work. For all ages!! My favorite part was the zip-line. What a rush!

The highlight of Louisville mega cavern is pretty much summed up by the title of the review - ziplining in a cave! If you like ziplining, or generally thrilling activities, this is a fun and unique place to go. You get to zipline over some really neat caverns, learn about the caves, and even race a friend at the end.... More

Zip lining was definitely on my bucket list and I'm so glad that I got to experience it here first. I met and became friends with the other people in our group because Max and Richard (our tour guides) really made the experience fun and exciting. I was visiting from out of town, but whenever I come back I will... More
