Outstanding ZIP lines. These nine lines are superb. Price is right. I have ZIP in many places, but the excitement of walking in cave like setting and zipping from one rock ledge to another is a treat.

I had half a day to kill in Louisville and was looking for something fun to do. This was perfect!!! The employees were very nice and the tour guides for the Zipline were a ton of fun!! Matt and Greg (our guides) made the adventure even more of a blast! It came to an amazing end with a wild red... More

This was a fascinating tour under Louisville! The cavern (which is man made, as opposed to a cave, which is nature made) is a constant temperature year round. It's dug out of limestone and water constantly seeps through the rock. As a result, when we left the cavern, our clothes felt slightly clammy. Not wet, but not quite dry, either.... More

I took my daughter to Louisville for an athletic camp at the college and when she saw the sign for the underground zip line, she pleaded with me to let her go. We went to the entrance, walked in to the welcome center and asked lots of questions about the attraction. The guide who talked to us was very cool... More

So glad to hear that your daughter was able to enjoy our zip tour! Yes, this is certainly an experience for the adventurous but because we based our requirements on weight (70lbs) and not age, we are able to accommodate younger kiddos (with their parents, of course) who meet the weight requirements. We have had children as young as 8... More

We had a great time checking out the caverns on a wagon pulled by a Jeep. Great fun and lots of history. I have not done the zipline. But have made a tradition for the Christmas holiday time. They light the route with holiday lights from top to bottom, then allow us to drive. They charge per car load. It... More

I went here for an outing with my old employer. We were able to cater or own sit down meal. Upon arrival our company executives presented us with zip lining contract from Mega Cavern. Basically it said do the activities at your own risk. I thought at first sight that this was a kiddy place and that it was not... More

A little expensive and not the biggest aerial park, but the fact that it's all inside a cave was awesome! The aerial park was pretty cool and somewhat challenging at times. The zip lines were amazing. Zipping into the darkness of a cave just can't be beat! Our tour guides were funny and even the cave trails and zip line... More

We have been to the caverns several times though out the years. Depends on the time frame you are planning to visit the caverns. They offer a tourist tram that allows you to be driven through the caverns with a guide and explain the history which is very interesting. If you prefer a zip line experience through the caverns they... More

I am not a fan of heights but the zip line is absolutely a must do when you visit Louisville. I have taken four out of towners to the cavern and zip line and all have had a fun time. I would put this on the list of things to do when people come to visit Louisville.

I have taken this tour several times and I would recommend it for anyone who has a free afternoon. They load you up on a specially-made trailer (attached to a Jeep with speakers) and they guide you through the history of the cavern, show you what it might have looked like as a Cold War fallout shelter, show you a...
