Decided to stop by while driving through Kentucky...glad we did! We had been zip lining in Mexico, which was a totally different experience than underground. Mack and David were very informative, personable, and patient with our group. Highly recommend the zip lining tour!!!

Our sales team had an afternoon here and we did the MegaTram tour. It was so interesting. The guide was great and we all really enjoyed it. It is amazing how large it is. I highly recommend it.

This was our first time to the Mega Cavern. We wanted to do the ropes course, but when we arrived we decided we wanted something a little more exciting. So, we did the zip lining and were lucky enough to get David and Paige as our guides. David was funny as hell. They both made the lulls between the zip... More

Perhaps because it's relatively new, it still falls short in some areas. 3 kids (6, 9, 11) and I did the Mega Quest course, then all 5 took the tram tour. Quest was, in a word, fun! Great way for family bonding time. Some areas were too difficult for my 6 year old as she wasn't tall enough even though... More

Thank you for your thorough review! We try to encourage visitors participating in multiple events to schedule a hour or so break between attractions to grab something to eat. You are correct, we exist in the remnant of a limestone mine which was active in the 1930s, we are not a natural cave. We're happy your family enjoyed their visit... More

My boyfriend and I made the trip to Louisville with all intentions to do the adventure ropes course. When we arrived at MegaCaverns we decided it didn't look adventurous enough, so we decided to go Zip Lining instead. David and Paige were awesome tour guides and really made our time more enjoyable. David's witty, albeit cheesy, jokes kept the whole... More
