We had a blast-went zip lining for my 50th birthday with 3 friends and had so much fun. Cameron and Kevin were our guides and did a fantastic job. They gave us lots of details about the caverns and made the experience even more awesome. I can't wait to come back with my children. They will love it.

We were fascinated by the Christmas Lights under Louisville, and just by the mega cavern alone. We were there at 8pm on a Thursday night, so we had no wait and drove thru at a leisurely pace. Had a coupon so the cost was reduced to $20 for the five of us in the car.

Did a group zip line tour at the Caverns with co-workers. We had an absolute blast. Mallory and Zach were wonderful guides, they definitely added to our experience. I would definitely go back for more.

What a fun way to spend the afternoon! Being underground in the cavern in the dark brought a fun element to ziplining. Our guides, Kevin and Cameron, were great! Thanks!

We did the Lights under Louisville on a Friday evening and got there after 8 pm. We had to wait for a while, maybe 25/30 minutes, but the traffic wasn't as bad a I thought it might be and I thought it was worth it as the drive through the Cavern lasted about 20 minutes. Cost is $25 per car,... More

In Louisville, you can actually zip line underground. It is very intense. It is extremely dark, and the zip lines are rather long. The guides funny demeanor really makes the experience every more worthwhile. There are two tricky bridges to walk over, and 5 lines to navigate. It is an adrenaline rush!

We'd never tried zip-lining in the past, so one of the reasons we headed to Louisville was to visit Mega Cavern. The tour was amazing, the guides quick-witted and fun and I was pleased with the level of safety involved. The cavern itself is wondrous to see, even 90 feet in the air. The staff did a great job decorating... More

Took my friend "Zippin" for her birthday-was a fantastic experience-we both loved it. Early bird special is a great deal. Kyle and Max were excellent guides-gave us all the instruction we needed and added in history of the caverns. This was a memorable day and I would recommend this adventure to anyone. The whole under cavern is amazing ans
