My family and friends have always came here and had a great time. I've spent a lot of money here in the past. The Mega Cavern seems safe, clean for what it is, and the staff has always been helpful. Today is our second trip for the bike park. The first time we were able to park in the lot... More

My family has zip lined several times, including Belize & Maui. Mega Zip is a must do if you are looking for something exciting & different. Our tour guides, Gage & Joel were professional, fun & patient. Thanks for another great memory to add in our book!

We have tried zip lines before but this one is unique with some cool scenery. Slightly intimidating on the heights, but our 2 teens and 9 year old did good! Nice guides keep it fun.

We have zip lined before but nothing like this. They take you under ground & under the Zoo & freeway! Our guides Emily & Hope we're great, lots of jokes and really help an 8 yr old on our tour who was nervous at first but loved it in the end. The time flew by. The caverns were deeper &... More

The most impressive adventure attraction I have been to. We were unable to take in all of the attractions but what we did do was fun. I was a little disappointed that we were not able to view the ziplining course. All in all a must see when travelling to Louisville.

Mountain biking in a cave? Who would have ever thunk? It was one of the craziest things I've ever done. It's a great place with so much to do. Very friendly & helpful staff. I will say that it is little tricky to find and once you're there, it throws you off a bit on how you approach and enter.... More

I recommend the tour to anyone visiting Louisville. My wife, kids, and I all thoroughly enjoyed it. We did not do the zip lines, bike park, or other amusements. For the time and what you see it is a little expensive, but still worth it in our opinion. You see some neat things, but it's also a truly unique experience... More

We went with a group from work and they were amazing. I've been zip lining in rainforests and numerous other places, but this was a whole new experience. Our guides, Cameron and Justin were phenomenal. I 100% recommend going. We went when it was cold so just make sure you dress warm, but its so worth it. Well played

Excellent! We went as a family of 5 with our youngest (11) incredibly afraid of heights. But she did it and we were so proud of her. Matt and Austin were fabulous guides. I was informed that they get bonus points for the number of times their names are mentioned so here goes: Matt & Austin, Matt & Austin, Matt... More

First time zip lining and it was a lot of fun! 100% underground and it lasted about 2 1/2 hours. Our guides, Max and Emily, were very informative of the caves, stressed safety and were entertaining. They do all of the hook-ups for you, so you doing have to worry about doing it wrong. I highly recommend this experience.!
