This was a good excursion, and educational/informative, as well. We only did the tram tour, but they also over a ropes course and zipline course, which look pretty amazing.

Went on July 3rd. My GF and I only had time for looking around and the tram tour. Worth the money, and very relaxing and entertaining. We'll be back to check out the rest of the place!

We visited Mega Cavern on July 3rd. My sister organized the trip for our family. We had 24 people in our group. Mega Caverns split us into two groups of 12 for the zip line tours. We had a great time. Our experience started with Megan checking us in. She was friendly and efficient with checking our waver forms and... More

My husband and I traveled 2 1/2 hours for this experience and it was well worth it. Our guides Ben and Jerry were wonderful. They both were entertaining, knowledgeable of the history of the cavern, knowledgeable of all safety aspects. A special note to Ben; thanks for helping me when I stumbled a few times on the landings and those... More

I don't do heights, so we didn't zip line, but we were still interested in seeing the caverns. They are impressive, and the back story is interesting. We did the tram tour and were the only ones on this particular tour. The guide was very well informed and was interesting to listen to. The story of how they raise the... More

I went on a tour and zip lining, the tour was ok, informative- I could have gone without it. Zip lining is a different story, that was awesome!! Our tour guides Kay and Sydney were great! I have been Zip lining over the Dominican Republic jungle and still liked the caves better, would definitely recommend it.
