At Mammoth Cave Adventures we offer a 5 line canopy zip tour, that offers 2 skybridges and an outdoor adventure for the whole family. Our lines vary from approximately 120 yards to 300 yards long, they vary in speeds, lengths and heights. We have 6 decks/platforms that differ in heights from about 20 feet to a two tier deck that reaches 44 feet tall. Our primary canopy zip tour takes you from deck to deck in the treetops on a course guided by a minimum of two certified guides for a fun and exciting adventure that will be sure to get your adrenaline pumping. Our tour time takes approximately one hour to one and a half hours.We also offer a secondary course aimed at individuals under 100 lbs, this is a 3 line course with lines that average 120 yards in length. This course also intersects with the primary course and includes a skybridge and ladder climb for those younger adventure seekers.

We stopped in Cave City overnight so we could tour the Mammoth Caves the next morning. I'm really glad we booked ahead online because our tour was sold out when we got there. We did the Domes and Dripstones tour and it was awe inspiring. Not for the faint of heart though, many of the spaces during the stairs down... More

This was the 2nd time we have been to Mammoth Cave and we loved it. We had children aging from 6 to 16 and they loved the hiking underground and the trails that were available above ground. The adults have decided we want to come back and do the 6 hour hike. This is a place you can visit multiple... More

Six of us in our group came from Louisville Kentucky to zipline. Met up with two other adventures. We all had an absolutely awesome time. Dave and Nate our instructors were very informative and instructed us on all the safety measures throughout the whole day ( they were the life of the party) . 5 of the people in our... More

Very professional and fun guides. They took care of everything! Had lines for 2 boys that joined with 'adult' lines for the last 2 zips. Highly recommend!

Mammoth Cave Adventures is well run and the staff is extremely professional, courteous and helpful. We had a few in our group that had never been zip lining before and were a bit apprehensive, but the guides really put everyone at ease. Perfect for friends, families or company team building. We had a great day at Mammoth Cave Adventures and... More

If you have done zip lining before, it compares with most places. My only true issue is that our guides were more interested in how fast we could zip-along rather than enjoying the sights while you are up there. When you go to fast from tree to tree you loose the experience of what you're actually up there to enjoy.

I visited Mammoth Cave several years ago and took a guided tour which was great, but this visit we only had time for the free, self-guided tour. It turned out to be much more than I expected. There was a park naturalist inside the Historic Entrance, near the old mine, who was excellent at telling the history, as well as... More

My family always drove right past the caves when we were kids-I decided to make the time to check them out. What an interesting tour and impressive record as the world's longest. Not for those who feel claustrophobic or afraid of heights. Tour guides seemed genuinely appreciative of those on the tour and happy to share their knowledge.

We decided to go zip lining while visiting Cave City for our anniversary! They have the perfect location...it's beautiful! Nathan and Dustin were our guides...they're such pros. It's a full-service zip lining experience...which we learned isn't offered everywhere. All the equipment is super safe and clean. We were blown away that we got to zip on FIVE different lines...wow!!
