went there a year ago for the Christmas lights. Was very disappointed in the displays and the cost was too much.

The holiday light display is great. It is a bit pricey but well worth it.. When we went in 2011 the line was long and we got a flat tire afterwards because of something we road over inside. This past year Dec 2012 they seemed to be better organized and the wait wasn't nearly as long. The display itself is great. I haven't been during the day hours but I like the idea of going light looking during the day..

We took our 3 year old grand-daughter to see the christmas light show. It was well worth the money to get to see all of the beautiful lights

Visited during the holiday lights showing. It would be very exciting for people with young children, I think it would be magical for them.

I purchased a ziplining tour at the Louisville Mega Cavern for my husband as a gift and we did it together. I cannot tell you how much fun this was. The staff provided excellent training and the tour guides were very attentive to our needs. They provided not only a lot of knowledge and information about the caverns, but they brought a lot of humor to the tour as well. I look forward to doing it again and highly recommend it to anyone with an adventurous streak.
