Went to see the Lights Under Louisville exhibit. It was AWESOME! Drove from indianapolis with the family and it was well worth the trip! Saturday night was jammed packed but they have it down to a science the way they move the cars along without any problems. The show is really cool!! Not to mention, you are 100 feet below... More

Went on the Zipline tour 12/18/2014 and loved it, there were 4 people total on the trip and in total it took about 1 hour. The tour guides (Malerie and Ken?... sorry If I misspelled them!) were friendly and energetic and made the whole experience that much better. Wish we had time to do the "Lights Under Louisville" but it's... More

We went to the "Lights Under Louisville" at the Louisville Mega Cavern. The lights were beautiful and the display included representations from different countries and various religions. We were pleasantly surprised by the length of the tour and the variety of themes. It was confortable enough to lower the car windows and enjoy the music. Well worth the admission price.

We did the Lights Under Louisville for Christmas. It is best to go on Monday through Thursday in order to avoid the crowds. They run rows of cars every few minutes, and do not accept credit cards. The time through the cave takes about 20 minutes and is well worth the visit. The lights are awesome.

Great light display and a fun family activity. Plan on something to do in the car while you wait in long lines to get into the cavern to see the lights. If you come prepared for little ones that will make the evening smoother. I would recomend it for young and old!

We had an awesome experience zip lining with Mallory M(?) and Kevin on 12/10/14. They made the experience so much fun, despite the fear. I can't wait to go back with the kids. I had been ziplining before, but this was so different and unbelievable. Mallory also made sure to recommend the Lights under Louisville and got us a coupon.... More

Took my family to the mega cavern for the light show, went on a weeknight so the line was short. Driving through the lights takes about 30 minutes, there are lights everywhere and each section has a theme. The kids enjoyed it and for a car load 20-25 dollars is reasonable" 20 with a coupon" overall nice for the kids... More

Great for children and the whole family!!! A little expensive unless you have a carload. They charge by type of vehicle you drive through the cavern.

We had a blast-went zip lining for my 50th birthday with 3 friends and had so much fun. Cameron and Kevin were our guides and did a fantastic job. They gave us lots of details about the caverns and made the experience even more awesome. I can't wait to come back with my children. They will love it.
