I've been zip lining before, but never in a cave. The guides were very funny and knowledgeable; they made the tour really fun. I also liked that you didn't have to worry about braking as I did on other tours in Mexico and the Caribbean.

The kids loved it and raved about it to me all the way home. I know they would have loved to ride the ziplines but that just would have been too much for 150 kids! They all want to come back and visit again. The history of this cavern is quite impressive. I recommend this for any visit to Louisville.

Alicia & Chris were great guides telling us some of the history of the caverns. Zip lines were lots of fun even for someone like me that is scared of heights and of falling. The "bunny" line at the beginning made me feel safe and ready for the real thing. You zip along so fast its hard to take in the geological formations of the cave. This is the first time I had done something like this and I highly recommend it. We didn't realize what was in the underground of our city. Hope to come back to check out the Christmas light tour. Price is well worth the experience and sharing the experience with my family.

This is especially fun in October when decorated for Halloween and you drive your car through! Great for the young and older crowds.

I just wanted to clarify that we do not have a drive-thru Halloween event. You are more than likely referring to Lights Under Louisville. This is annual event, which will run November 16, 2012 through December 30, 2012. Thanks for visiting us in the past and hope to see you again in the near future!

We had a great time. We were fortunate to meet Don, one of the owners, right at the front gate. He was so excited to greet and welcome us. From that point on it was all smiles and a fun time. Saylor and Lindsey were our guides and they showed professionalism, a thorough understanding and explanation of the cavern and the zip lining experience, and above all, safety for all of us that were in the group. It's a real neat experience and we will do it again in the future.
