Went to the Mega Caverns with friends. We tried the tram tour with Don which was interesting and he was hilarious making the tour more interesting than maybe it might have been had we not had him, but the highlight of the visit was definitely zip-lining through the caverns. Max and Purlee were our zip-lining guides and they were super... More

Our tour guide was very informative, but with all the positive reviews, my expectations were high. The tram tour didn't live up to my expectation. Note, most of the positive reviews are for zip lining. This is my fault as I expected more of a natural cave versus a limestone cave/fallout shelter. The tour was interesting, but my small child...

We started our morning with a great tour of the cave along the Zip trail. Perry and Rich kept us safe, informed, and slightly amused.

I took my mother for her 79th birthday and had a wonderful time. Kevin and Chad were the best and made this excursion a great event to remember. The whole staff was very kind to us. Thank you all.

Do the zipline! It was intense! If you are afraid of heights, this is a good place to battle your phobea, or NOT! You can now out if it's simply too much, but don't! Scary fun!

My family really enjoyed the zip line. I was worried about my son who is 8 yrs. old because he is afraid of heights, but David helped ease him by saying no need to worry because it's depth not height ( lol ). My son did excellent and loved it. I'm sure his eyes were closed at some points though.... More

My sister and I zip lined for the first time. Doc and Chris were the best, very patient with "older" and "terrified" women. We had a blast and were much more relaxed by the end. Very helpful and they made it fun with the commentary and information. Highly recommended!

Something for every member of the family. We took the tram tour, and if we had a more experienced guide would have been more interesting, but we did learn some things about the cavern. The ropes course was really fun. Looking forward to trying the zipline tour next time we visit.
