Both guides were very professional and though zip-lining for the first time, felt safe in their hands. Both were humorous, especially Paige. Cameron was very knowledgeable and provided historical and geological tidbits. Five stars!

Went today with my cousins from CA. Thoroughly enjoyed zip lining! Had a good time with Ben and Carrie as our guides. They're very good with interacting with all ages from what I could tell. Very funny too! Ask about the Big Papa, haha, best one!

My girlfriend and I went to Louisville for the weekend last minute. It was a rainy day and we were worried about hitting up 4th street too early, so we tried out the Mega Caverns. The tickets were $90 each, but well worth it. It was easily 2.5 hours of exploring the underground caves and hitting 6 zip lines over... More

This was a great time. I went zip lining with friends and this is a great place. It has great height and length of line and the darkness adds to the experience

We did the zip lining and it was well worth the cost. Ethan and Cole were our tour guides and they had us laughing the whole time.

Justin and Jenae did a great job with the zip lines. This was an alternative due to rain but definitely worth it. Being in the cave and the bridges were unique.

My title says it all. This place is big and dark. This is a giant man-made mega cavern searching for reasons to exist. They have filled it with activities, like ziplining, that are more fun outside. Don't waste the money for the tour -- it's a tram ride through the cavern with some lame sets here and there. I recommend... More

Went with my husband and 11 year old today. Great outing with Ethan and Max as our guides. All lines are unique and have extraordinary views; getting from line to line isn't difficult at all - only a few steps and small slopes. Strongly recommend wearing something with long sleeves.
