What an amazing experience. We had two ladies who have never zip lined before , and they felt so relaxed. The guides were friendly helpful and had great humor. They were also full of history about not only the caverns but also the state. Would defiantly do it again.

I would recommend this to anyone who has or has not "zipped" before. It's an experience that you can only do in Louisville. Mallory and Doc were our guides and they were awesome and very supportive to all the guest on the tour...including me who is slightly afraid of heights and faulty safety equipment (had to overcome my fear somehow)...

Absolutely amazing. DOC and Mallory were our guides, they made this a real adventure for everyone. Mallory was very knowledgeable of her craft. Telling us about our surroundings and extra little tid bits...DOC was telling jokes trying to ease the tension. I'm not going to lie, it got a little terrifying on some platforms, but then that definitely adds to... More

We had a great time "zipping" through the underground course. It was quite exciting to zip through the dark and over canyons. Our guides, Will and Dylan, were awesome and made sure everyone had a great time. Their fun stories and jokes helped reduce anxiety and unite the group. I recommend this experience for families, the kids loved it! We... More

We went on the tram tour, which was interesting and our guide Greg was entertaining. Recycling a mine is an interesting story and the owners have done some creative thinking to make use of an unbelievably enormous space. The families having birthday parties, on the Quest and zip line all seemed to be having a great time. However, three of... More
