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

We decided to take a day trip to Louisville and explore the hit attraction Mega Caverns. We decided to do the tram attraction and Lindsay was our tour guide. She was awesome and very informative. 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

Nice place to visit, excellent service. We did the ziplines, but there are alot of other things to do. Adrenaline rush for the zip lines, caves, very unique, must stop for a day trip or passing through if you have a few hours and ready for and adventure

We did the mega zips and it was so fun! Mack and Evan were amazing! The only problem was the group size. It was a little large so it took a long time waiting for everyone. Everything else was great though!

Our guides, Max and Nick, really were professional, funny, and entertaining. They both engaged well with all participants. They made us feel comfortable as we were both first timers. Both guides told us little tidbits about the history of the mine. Make sure your wear something comfortable, not too short shorts and a jacket as it gets a little chilly... More

Had a great time zip lining for our anniversary. Tour guide Kevin was great. Very personable. The groups are way too large. That's the only thing that would hold me back from going again.
