This was not a good idea I thought at first. Then when we met our Guides thing became less stressful. Doc and Quentin really made this experience so much fun and safe. Totally recommend it to my friends and family.

Zip lining at mega caverns was a once in a lifetime family bonding experience. My cousin and I took my 9 and 11 yoa sons. At 45 and 31 we weren't sure if we could enjoy this adrenaline rush. Quentin & Doc our guides were so encouraging and fantastic that we never questioned the safety of the equipment or the... More

We had a couple of choices for entertainment while stopping in Louisville.... We chose this in hopes that it would entertain our children and let them get a little exercise after a long trip! Mission accomplished!! Kevin and Justin were hysterical and our Madison and Mya had an amazing time. More importantly, my fiancé Nate was smiling the whole entire... More

This was my first time to go these caverns in Louisville, I'd like to go back in the day time and see what else they have to offer. Since this is supposed to be the only underground Christmas light display in the world and that your drive through these caverns in your vehicle, my mom and I wanted to check... More

This is a must go. I was there last weekend with my girlfriend. An exhilarating experience. Isaac and Katie were extremely good and patient with our group (a lady could not go through the first zipline). Picture yourself ziplining freely into the darkness of the cave. While it can be overwhelming and scary, I felt it was very safe (equipment... More

My fiance and I went zip lining for the first time and were thrilled to have Matt and Mallory as our guides. They kept us laughing and gave us good suggestions of what to do in Louisville (being from out of town). We plan to help keep Louisville weird, and come back someday to visit the Mega Cavern....and hopefully the... More

I've had Mega-Zip on my to-do list for a while now, and yesterday I was finally able to check it off my list! My friend and I drove up from Nashville just for the experience and had the best time ever. Kyle and Hope were so much fun! This will now be a must-do anytime I have visitors in the... More
