Thank you Ivy & Max for bringing your "A" game to our early morning group. You were Rockstars! The zip lines were almost as fun as you guys.

This was the first first time my boyfriend and I have gone zip lining underground. Ben was the best zip line guide we've ever had on a zip line tour. We loved how goofy he was yet safety was the first thing on his mind. We also enjoyed hearing about some history facts about the cave and also the caves... More

Today I went zip lining and it was super fun! It's not the most difficult or intense zip lining course but it is enjoyable, especially Lawson and Mack (even though Lawson talks a big game and can't back it up). I definitely recommend this. The Mega Cavern is quite the unique visit! -Ian

Three hours of cool fun during a hot summer day. How can it get better? For one, the price is reasonable; for another, there are tables and chairs for folks who go along but are not participating in the ropes course; and, safety is high on the list of concerns. This was our second summer of taking grandkids (11 and... More

We took our 12 yr old son and had a blast. We had all zip lined before, but it was super cool in the cavern! I don't recommend light colored clothing because you will likely get a little dirty (but not too bad). It was definitely muddy in a couple of areas, so don't wear your nicest shoes. Some were...

Our guides during the two and a half hour adventure were the dynamic sibling duo of Savannah and Mack. They were excellent communicators and were able to calm the fears of those in the group who were a little hesitant to jump out into the dark abyss. My boyfriend and I had a terrific time and felt very safe during... More
