This is a full zip tour so well worth your journey to get there. I have enjoyed tours previously (forested), but having the added effect of darkness made this a new experience. I would do it again! I felt the guides (JohnMark and Carrie) were very knowledgeable and safe. I didn't question the safety of my children in their hands.... More

Thank you for the review! Safety and entertainment are two of our main concerns. It's true, we do ask all guests to arrive 30 minutes prior to their scheduled tour so there will be plenty of time to check-in, get weighed-in, and fill out the required forms. We're happy you enjoyed the Mega Zips tour with John Mark and Carrie! More

This is a great activity for people of all ages as Mega Caverns offers ziplining, driving tours, bike tours, and obstacle courses etc. I signed up for the ziplining which was expensive ($80 weekday, $90 weekend) but there are ample $10 coupons online and at most hotels in the Louisville area. I was in a group of people from all... More

Mega Quest was fun and some of the Ariel obstacle courses were a bit challenging but still fun. The zip line tour was fun and our tour guides Chloe and Ben were amazing. All in all fun place.

First of all, I am terrified on heights. I've went zip lining twice before we visited the Mega Cavern. I actually really enjoyed my experience here!! Our tour guides, Ben & Janae, were great! They were funny but when I was nervous they said everything was fine. Definitely recommend!

Wonderful day! We had never been on ziplines like that and didn't know what to expect. My girls (11 and 13) loved the experience and commented that the equipment was nicer than what they have used at smaller ziplines parks. The lines were a lot of fun but the tall heights were a surprise. I have a slight fear (thinking... More

Tarzan and Mack were amazing. Respectful with a great sense of humor. The one thing I notice and appreciated the most is the safety they demonstrated. If I went back I would love to have them as guides again!

My husband and I have lived in Louisville for the better part of 10 years. We had participated in the Lights Under Louisville event for several years and while they are unique the display always leaves me a bit disappointed. I chalked it up as just having my expectations way too high. My parents were interested in zip-lining at the... More

Ziplining among the trees is great, but ziplining underground is even better! There's something about jumping off the edge and flying down the line, admiring the cavern, that makes for a "rock"-in' good time! Also, the guides Max and Jenae were very entertaining and insightful about the city of Louisville..

A great new adventure in ziplining. The cavern was dark and a cool 58 degrees. The subdued lighting made the runs more fun. The guides, Max and Cody, were entertaining as well as informative about the history of the mine.
