If you are looking for a Christmas theme for the family this year this is it. Lots better than the Ky horse park. Doesn'matter if it'S nice weather or nasty outside you drive through 58 degree temps to a Christian based Christmas light show.

Thank you for your review of Lights Under Louisville! It's true, the light show is completely underground with a constant temperature of 58*. We hope to see you for the 2016 show starting November 18th! More

We went zip lining in the evening. It was a very fun experience. Dan and Cody were our tour guides and they were awesome!! Very fun, safe, and knowledgable about the caverns. I would highly recommend this for a date night or fun friends night. The caverns are amazing to see and the zip lines were so thrilling.

Tram ride through cavern. Historically significant as a bomb shelter during the cold-war. Tour driver used both recorded messages and personal descriptions. The recorded messages were very helpful and although the tour guide was trying she was unimpressive. This is UNDER Louisville, KY.

We had a great time at the underground zip lines. We learned a lot about the original purpose of the cavern and the many uses for it today! Our guides Mack and Savannah made the experience even more enjoyable because we were very confident in their skills! I highly recommend this at least once in your life!

Planned a birthday weekend trip to KY JUST for this attraction. Totally worth it. SAVANNAH was one of our tour guides....she was AMAZEBALLS, and really fun. I loved her jokes and laid-back style. There is so much to this place, I wish we had more time to spend. Would have brought our bikes and biked around...and taken the tour around... More
