My wife and I went on the Mega Zips last Friday night. What a fun and unique experience! My wife loved the thrill of zip-lining into the darkness. The geek in me loved the engineering that went into digging the mine and then retrofitting it for recreation. Justin and Kelsey, our tour guides, were friendly, safety focused and knew exactly...

This is definitely a worthwhile activity if you're in town. The ziplines aren't incredibly long, but the setting makes it unique enough that you should give it a try even if you've ziplined a lot before. I did like how they didn't go overboard on the safety preparation prior to entering the cave... Stayed pretty active the whole time. Our... More

Our company took us to Mega Cavern for an outing/team building event. Our group did the zip line, we had a great time! Our guides, Katie and Will were awesome; a lot of fun but clearly focused on safety. Remember it is a cave so take a jacket. They also had a ropes course that looked like a lot of... More

I went with a group from work as part of a team building event and we had a fantastic experience. Our tour guides, Will and Katie, were great and help make the event fun and memorable for all. I would recommend mega caverns zip lines to all without reservations.

This was my first zipline experience and it was great! I was expecting to be cold in the cavern, so I wore a light sweater, but with 13 pounds of gear, I warmed up fast... David and Isaac were professional, fun and made everyone feel at ease. I will definitely go back!

I'd gone ziplining before, but this is a completely different experience. Being underground made it seem not as high and yet just as intense in this weird "limbo" sort of way. The hollowness, lighting, and silence of the surroundings really make for an interesting time. It was the perfect length and they also treat you just right: giving you enough... More
