This has to be one of the greatest thrills I have done flying through the air on a small steel cable, high above large cave like rooms is so cool. The staff was fun but made sure that I was safe. I loved every second. Go for the early session and save some bucks.

I had been dying to do this once in a lifetime experience while we were in Louisville for the day. It was not at all what I had expected, it was EVEN BETTER! For any adrenaline junkie or someone looking to get out of their comfort zone, Mega Zips has got it all! Doc and Rudy were the best tour... More

My family always looks for unique adventures to experience when we travel, and the Louisville Mega Cavern definitely provided that! The ziplining was exciting, and our guides, Katie and Kroeger, were excellent! My 3 children (ages 18, 13, and 10) and I all had a blast, and would recommend the Mega Zips to anyone! My husband and youngest child did... More

Me and my 3 friends went. and we had tje last tour of the day with EVAN and Matt. I think that was awesome. Best tour guides ever and if I had a car and the money I would go there every weekend. And I would love to work there one summer :)

Went zippin with my wife and we both agree it was a one of a kind experience. whoever thought of this idea is raking in the dough but that's what they deserve. we felt safe the whole time but it was still just crazy enough to leave your legs shaking a bit too. the bridges you walk across are scarier...

Thank you for this great review. Some great tips (definitely check for discounts!) and I agree, the bridges are way more scary than the zip lines! More

For a first timer it was a great experience. The only thing is there is a lot of waiting around. Wish there was more information shared about the caverns. Or possibly having the guides at every platform and allowing you to go through the course more than once.

Some great ideas! Though most people love having their sames guides throughout the trip, I can see how having a guide at each platform so that you move through more quickly would be a benefit, also. Thank you! More

I first did Mega Quest with just my 10 and 12 year old. Although you get three hours, we felt we had done all we wanted after two hours. It was a fantastic ropes course with the lower part being easier and the higher part being more of a challenge. We did get really really warm so I would recommend... More

Awesome time with friends and family. Loved it! Ziplines were amazing, but the aerial part was crazy! But my guides encouraged me the whole way!
