We went to the Lights Under Louisville and loved all the lights. It was a neat experience. Not sure it was worth $25 and it is not for the driver of the car. For passengers only.

Did MegaQuest with 11, 9, and 6 year-old. Lots of fun and I think the attraction provided an introduction to basic mountaineering skills and a fair bit of exercise. Always good to get the little ones moving. The three hours flew by and we didn’t want the time to end. The MegaQuest course includes a pair of small zip lines which were a blast and gave the kids incentive to work through the course.

One employee (wish I remembered his name) was really stellar the rest were merely okay. Is a bit expensive but in the end a very worthwhile experience I would recommend.

This attraction is on our family's must do during the holidays. It is rated as one of the top ten light attractions in the USA. You drive yourself through the lighted caverns. Each area is a specific theme such as fairy tales, patriotic symbols, religious scenes, and many others. All are synchronized to specific music. Something new is added every year. Would highly recommend it.

We went to see the holiday lights in the cavern. Was a great display of lights and music, but the price per carload is steep. Maybe more worth it if had more than 5 people in a car but for a couple, not sure it is worth the price of admission. the route through the lighted trail is 1.5 miles which goes very fast, so that added to our feeling of not being worth the price. If you go, squeeze as many as you can in the car to make it worth it.
