I took my 3 year old granddaughter. She was really bored. Doesn't keep the interest of small children

Thank you for your review. All of our attractions have specific requirements for participation. Only the Mega Tram can accept anyone under the age of 5, and is mostly concerned with historical information regarding the cavern which is difficult to appreciate for many small children. We hope to see you in a couple of years for the Mega Quest! More

Make sure you take extra layers it is cold and a bit of a shock to the system as compared to the Kentucky heat. It's also very bumpy so sit on a trailer with the most people. The tour is very interesting, especially the part describing the role the cave would of played in the Cuban missile crisis. Our guide... More

Visited today and bought 2 activities. Sign at the cash register says a discount of 10% if purchase 2 activities. Taylor, the asst. manager, refused to give the discount as he says I did not ask for it. Why would I have to ask for a discount that is clearly stated on the sign?

Kolyn and Lindsey were fantastic zip line guides through the caverns. They made me feel comfortable and confident on my first time zip lining experience. They know their stuff and are entertaining as well.

My second time at the Mega Cavern Zip Line course. Went with family members ranging 8 to 67 years old. Candra and Jakob took care of us, especially the young ones (2 - 8 year olds and 2 - 10 year olds). Easy instructions for all to understand. Fun time.
