They had some nice lights and you can tell a lot of work went into it, but I am not sure it is worth $30 to drive through. Our trip didn't take the 30min that it states it does.

This place has 6 ziplines and we had an awesome time riding the zipline and also walking through the cavern. Kyle was a really great guide and was very friendly and helpful.

We had a great time...the 3 hour long wait was a great time actually....it was a great way for us to spend time with the kids. Only problem is Louisville should've supported the event by having traffic cops..road rage can turn violent.

We took the Christmas self drive light show tour. It was really nice, you got to drive your own vehicle through the cavern to see the Christmas light display. It took about 25 minutes to drive through and they had a lot of different scenes to look at as well as Holliday music playing that fit what you were seeing.... More

I was freaking out about being claustrophobic but it was amazing. Well worth the money. The history of the cavern and the whole deal was so cool.
