Zip line

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.

When visiting the massive man made cave, we had saw that they offer a zip line course. Looking at the price, I have come to the conclusion that the experience was well worth the Money. Our guides, Mack and Jenae, were very interactive and provided us with good and interesting information that regarded the cave and what lies within it.... More

Mack and Max were awesome. They made sure everybody was comfortable and safe. They helped the young kids in the group not be scared and the same for ones afraid of heights. Also, their jokes to lighten the mood was great!

First time ziplining. This was a fun and unique experience. Gliding through the cavern over canyons is thrilling. Our guides Paige and Max were phenomenal. Not only did they really know what they were doing with the zipline, but they taught us a lot about the cavern and at the same time were very engaging. Highly recommend visiting Louisville Mega...

We had an excellent time at the Mega Cavern Zip Line. Our two guides Coco and Cairo were funny, informative but most importantly focused on our little groups safety.

Went zip lining with my dad and we both had a great time! I liked that you get to do multiple zips, and the fact that it's underground makes it scenic in a very unusual way. We had the first tour of the day, so it was basically just the two of us with our two awesome guides so we... More
