Mega QUEST is one of only twenty courses of its kind in the USA. Aerial challenge and ropes courses are the hottest new extreme sport in Europe where thousands of courses are located. For those wanting a lesser thrill, be sure to check out the MEGA TRAM a Historic Tour: Ride and never walk through a part of 17 miles of underground passageways beneath the city of Louisville.

6 zip lines all inside the cave, some about 80 feet high. You WILL be impressed and pleased with the experience.

Thank you for visiting and I'm glad you had a great experience with us. We do have plans in the future to expand our zip course to offer even more lines, but right now we are focusing on a new attraction at the Louisville MEGA Cavern that we hope to open in the late Fall.

Thank you for bringing your team out to experience our zip lines course. I'm glad everyone enjoyed it. Our tram tour is definitely not as thrilling as MEGA Zips, but the tram was designed to offer the history, geology, and background of this unique location. We will use your feedback for any changes/revision that may occur in 2013. Have a great day.

“Choose This For Your Next Adventure!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2012

Zip lining was such a fun adventure, I only wish it was longer! Ours was a little less than two hours.The tour guides Alec & Schuler made it even better with their comic relief! I would definitely consider taking more people next time to do this, and I especially loved being able to race each other on one of the zips! Personally, I loved walking up the Indiana Jones type bridges (even when some think it's funny to shake!). It's completely safe, and just feels like you're in an episode of Legends of the Hidden Temple or something. Just remember to lift your feet when you land! It seemed like a lot of people didn't get the hang of that.

Thank you for the great review. I have to admit, that you definitely feel like a part of Indiana Jones when you are walking across our challenge bridges and zipping down lines at 40 mph. All that's missing is a bridge that drops about 15 feet while you are standing on it. That could be fun to watch...at least for us! ;) Maybe we will consider that in the near future. Thanks for visiting!

“BOMB.COM! DO IT!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2012

The Mega Cavern was amazing! I love the go-with-the-flow mood of the staff, plus the awesome t-shirts! Dave and Greg were great fun and had the best attitudes even though our group was massive and late. They never complained and made us laugh the entire time! The caves are sweet, plus how many people can say they've be underground zip lining? I CAN!!! Add this to your bucket list!

I'm glad your group had a fun time with us and yes, our t-shirts are the BOMB.COM as well. We blow out of them. Hope to see you all back in the near future.

“Tram tour was fun”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2012 via mobile

Had a great time on the tram tour. Looking forward to coming back to do the zip lines. Hubby and I have plans to come back even though we live in Florida. Best customer service we've received in Kentucky!

Thank you for checking out our tram tour. If you all enjoyed riding around in the cavern, you will most definitely enjoy stepping off of platforms 90 feet in the air and zipping down lines at 40mph. It's more than an adrenaline rush. Hope you all make it back out this way to check it out. Thanks for visiting!
