Mega cavern zip lines were so much fun! This was my third time zip lining and probably my favorite! The views here were amazing! I'm scared of heights but these zips weren't too scary since you can't see the ground below you very well, making the initial jump a little easier. Max and Paige were awesome tour guides!

The Christmas light displays were very nice. It is about 1 mile long and you drive your vehicle through a roadway in the cavern. They gave out a CD to play as you drive though the cavern. A worthwhile site to visit.

Mika and Joe are great Zip line guides! They kept the group entertained and provided historical factoids of the Mega caverns. The BMX park was fabulous! Spent half the day there. Please add a spectator section.

Kyle and Paige did a great job. 2 in our party were first timers and they were very patient with them. Highly recommend this, even for a novice. Just sit back and hang on. Your guides do all the work. 😊

Kyle and Johnmark were our trip guides on the zip-lines and they were fantastic! They both had upbeat personalities that made you feel at easy as you slid at breakneck speeds on a wire in a dark cavern :) Loved every minuted of it! If you are thinking about doing this, do it. You'll have the time of your life... More

Wasn't sure what to expect since I had never zip lined before but it was so much fun. I was with my boyfriend and parents on the way home to Chicago from North Carolina and it was a great way to break up our trip. They make sure they walk you through the whole process and explain more as you... More
