My son and I went zipping with Doc and Will as our guides. They were extremely helpful and careful. There are 6 lines and 2 suspension bridges on the course. The guides do all the work of clipping you onto the lines and platforms which made me feel pretty safe. The course is a lot of fun and I would... More

Was in Louisville for the weekend with my teenage son, and this was the only thing he wanted to do. I have never zipped lined before and because of JJ and Alex were the best guides EVER!!! They made sure I was relaxed and not nervous about doing each zip line.

Our family did the Mega Quest and had a blast. I had one daughter (12) that wanted to do the zip line and another that did not (11). By the middle of our 3 hour adventure both were zipping through the course to do the zip line. Mom and Dad were taxed after an hour and a half and enjoyed... More

We are grandparents taking 2 teens on a Spring Break trip. When our girls saw the ad last year we knew that it would be our destination this year. The uniqueness of it was what attracted us. My husband did the zip line with the girls and they all really enjoyed it. He was impressed with the safety of the... More

Did the tram tour as well as cavern zip lining. Very well maintained, organized and clean. Fun for the young and old. :) The zip lining was exciting and worth the money. Alec and JJ were awesome guides - ask for them!

Matt S & Rachael C were great guides. We really enjoyed the zip lines. It was a fun adventure and something different that we haven't tried.

We love ziplining and this was no exception! I experienced this with my husband and our 10-year old and we all thoroughly enjoyed the adventure! Our guides were phenomenal - being informative, knowledgeable and entertaining. We cant say enough about the fun time we had. It was thrilling, a tiny bit scary on the last twin zip-line, as you are... More

My tour guides were Doc and Will and they were great! I have been ziplining in different countries and this was one of my favorites. They do all the clicking in and out off the lines so this allowed new zipliners to just enjoy the rides. There were suspension bridges as well. If you are afraid of heights, this probably... More

We did the obstacle course. It was a good workout but you have to be prepared for it to take time. You have 2 cables and one has to be hooked on to the equipment at all times. The age min is 5 but a 5 year old would a lot of help hooking and unhooking the cables.

Thanks for your feedback! Glad you guys had a fun time. And yes, the younger kiddos may need a bit of help though I have seen 6 yr old fly through it on their own. Hope you can come back and see us again soon! More

I have been zip-lining before in Mexico and other places, but this place is unique. First of all the guides were hilarious and informative and help make the trip. The actual zip-lining was fun and we never got bored with it. We did the combo package and after zip-lining we did the rope canopy course. I would definitely go back!
