Eight or nine different zips INSIDE a huge, haunted cave. This is awesome. There is one that is around 900 feet long. The crew was amazing. 90 feet above the floor, with just the right amount of lighting. Make sure your guide tells you the scary story.

For those who are a little bit timid about heights and putting your trust into some fancy gadget gear, just to catapult yourself off a small pedastal into... well don't look down. But in all seriousness, you start practising on a 'Bunny Zipline' to get you used to the zipline and familar with how these contraptions work. After that you are off to the 'Zipline to Hell'. And, as my caption said, if this is Hell... well I want to do it again.
You can test your inner coward on up to 5 ziplines and 2 challenge bridges. You can opt out the fifth zipline, but really, who would want to at this point. For some adrenaline junky this may be nothing but boring, but for us normal citizens, it was absolutely fun and a rush!
The last and longest zipline gets you so pumped that you just want to start all over again.
Our guides were Kyle and Kelly. They took all safety precausions very serious and thank you for the tip and what to do after we were done zipping through the caverns! It was a pleasure.
Just one small comment: IF there was just a wee bit more lighting under zip 3 and 4, you may see more of your surroundings any may get your adrenaline pumping just a tad more.

A man made cave under the city of Louisville. The 90 minute tour is very informative and fun. Some of the jokes are cheesy but come on you are in a man made cave.

We went there during spring break last week and took the zip line tour on my daughters 9th Birthday. The guides really went out of their way to treat her like a QUEEN! Everyone on our group even stopped at the 4th line and sang happy birthday to her...
Beyond that, the scenery is just amazing! Especially knowing it was all done by hand! They have put alot of work into this over the last hundred years and from what they were saying, they are planning a whole lot more to come!
The absolute ONLY negative thing I could say is there are only 5 Zip Lines, and the "Bunny" Line is counted as one of those. So really, there are 4, and the "challenge bridges" aren't really a challenge, but still fun anyway! i would do it again, especially if I had a coupon! LOL!
Once they add all the additional things they were talking about, I would DEFINITELY rate it a 5!!! Or if I was only rating on the tour guides! They really made it a memorable experience for all of us! Thanks Guys!!!
