amazing good time on the zip line tour with Isaac and Justin as our tour guides. they were entertaining and talkative. a great experience, well worth the money. the zip lines are through dimly lit caverns, probably better for those afraid of heights, but its not completely dark.

We arrived an hour early for our Zip Line tour so we took the tram ride through the cavern to kill the time. The tram driver gave us an excellent tour and description of how the cavern came to be, what it was and what it is. We had never cared about zip lining, but the draw here is zipping... More

We went as a group early in the morning and had a great group of guides. McMillan was one of our guides and he did a great job of letting everyone have a good time, not feel scared, made funny jokes to lighten up the moods. It was a great experience. Even for those who are scared of heights this... More

What an amazing experience. We had two ladies who have never zip lined before , and they felt so relaxed. The guides were friendly helpful and had great humor. They were also full of history about not only the caverns but also the state. Would defiantly do it again.

I would recommend this to anyone who has or has not "zipped" before. It's an experience that you can only do in Louisville. Mallory and Doc were our guides and they were awesome and very supportive to all the guest on the tour...including me who is slightly afraid of heights and faulty safety equipment (had to overcome my fear somehow)...

Absolutely amazing. DOC and Mallory were our guides, they made this a real adventure for everyone. Mallory was very knowledgeable of her craft. Telling us about our surroundings and extra little tid bits...DOC was telling jokes trying to ease the tension. I'm not going to lie, it got a little terrifying on some platforms, but then that definitely adds to... More

I would highly recommend going zip lining here, never will you ever zip line under ground like this. We had a blast. Our tour guides Matt and Dylan were awesome and made things so much fun. This was our second trip and it will not be our last, anytime we can get away from wisconsin for a week end of... More

We had a great time "zipping" through the underground course. It was quite exciting to zip through the dark and over canyons. Our guides, Will and Dylan, were awesome and made sure everyone had a great time. Their fun stories and jokes helped reduce anxiety and unite the group. I recommend this experience for families, the kids loved it! We... More
