We didn't see Mary on our trip through the caverns. We did however have a lot of fun. Our tour guides (Nick and Kyro Ren) were fun and professional. My daughter and I had never been on a zip line that wasn't military. Thanks fellas.

My brother and I just completed a Zipline tour with guides Max and Claire. We had a great time and would highly recommend this adventure. The guides do all the work - you get to sit back and enjoy the experience of a lifetime.

Four of us went on the Mega Cavern Tram ride. The price was reasonable and lasted about 1 1/2 hrs. Our tour guide, Greg, was truly knowledgeable, terrific sense of humor and helpful. Greg suggested that we ride near the front as the ride gets quite bumpy in several places. We, being seniors, certainly appreciated the suggestion. He had lots... More

Been on several tours of the Caverns with groups of students. Excellent for anyone who can appreciate natural wonders, engineering skills and some cool local history. The only determining factor between a good experience and a great one is going to be the quality of the guides you may have and the sound system to hear what they have to... More

We thought we knew what to expect from reading about the Mega Cavern, but we didn't have it exactly right. The drive in throws you off a bit as the road signs are pretty minimalist. After parking we were a bit surprised to see all the truck traffic though we shouldn't have. This is a business, not just a tourist... More

They also have multiple other attractions and we will surely be back to check out the zip tour and mega quest for sure. Great bang... More

We had a wonderful time at the climbing and zip park. Our grandchildren were ages 5, 7 and 9. I will not give our ages! We all climbed and balanced over many obstacles. We also zip lined. It was the best! Very well done. Instructions were clear and I had no fear for even the 5 year old. I highly... More
