“Still Zipping!!!!”
Reviewed March 31, 2013

My daughter and I took a trip to the Louisville, Kentucky area for spring break 2013. One of the local attractions we decided to explore were the Mega Caverns and wow, what an adventure we had! Neither of us had ever been zip lining before but were up for something new. After the inital preparations, away we went on 6 different lines and all of them were underground. Our guides were David & Molly who were extremely skilled and able to answer any questions we had. It was an awesome experience and I recommend it to everyone.

“great time”
Reviewed March 31, 2013

Both kids home for spring break decided to take a day trip to louisville to do the underground zip line . It did not disappoint . Guides Zach and Curtis were great. Safety was a priority unlike zip lining in Mexico. Cannot imagine how big the cavern underground is till you see it for yourself. This is an activity the whole family can enjoy.

“Had a blast!”
Reviewed March 30, 2013

Went to Louisville for a mini spring break trip specifically for the MegaZip tour and so glad we did! Staff is excellent (Alec & Jeremy were awesome tour guides!) and it's well worth the money.
From the 12 year old: They're super awesome!
From the 8 year old twins: When can we go again?!

“Awesome experience - "Do It Underground"”
Reviewed March 30, 2013

We went to the Mega Cavern while traveling through Louisville. It was such a great time. We had zip lined in the past, but never underground. It was a great experience. The cavern was amazingly large and to zip line through it was simply breath taking. The guides were very friendly and helpful. They were young college students that made the trip a lot of fun, but they made sure safety was always first. This attraction is highly recommended. Take your family or a group of friends.

“Mega Zips were awesome!!”
Reviewed March 29, 2013

My 8 year old son and I were here for a little spring break adventure. We loved it!! Our guides Alec and Dave really helped my son gain confidence and kept him from being nervous about zipping. This was the first time either of us had ever zipped and we loved it!! We are trying to get a group together to go again soon. Mega Caverns staff is well organized and super friendly. Definitely felt safe the entire time. Not to mention the incredible view and history within the caverns. We will definitely be back!!
