After receiving a negative experience checking in with a rude supervisor named Claire, I began my journey zip lining! Mack was an awesome, educational and entertaining tour guide! He definitely MADE the experience. Janae was also really informative and nice. I do feel it is a little pricey ($79.99 not including any discounts) for the 6 short zip lines you... More

I never knew I could be whizzing along at 50+mph so high above the ground -- while being underground! Our family heard about the Mega Cavern while doing research on places to go in Louisville. We decided to give it a go and learned it is definitely worth every penny. Kyle and Candra in particular were excellent guides, with a... More

This was our first time on a zipline and we are so glad we went here. Our guides were Sydney & Candra and they were excellent! They provided thorough details every step of the way which made sure you were safe and had a great time. They were also very entertaining with their jokes and engaged the group. I am... More

From the moment you park, this place is idiot proof which did a lot to build our confidence. Our elementary-aged kids had zip lined before but were nervous. Everything here seems to run like clock-work from the check-in process to putting on gear. Our guides David and Sarah made all the cheesey jokes you expect on tours like this and... More

Definitely a unique location and experience - nothing else like it in the world. The bike tour by Don and Kyro was really entertaining and informative and lot's of fun. The 6 zip lines, linked by suspension bridges, through the vast caverns was spectacular and a great way to get the adrenalin flowing - highly recommended for adrenalin junkies! Only... More

Had heard of the Mega Cavern and so decided to see what it was all. There were 3 adults and 2 children in our group, decided to just take the tram tour to check it out. The driver was very informative and funny, and kept everything interesting. I have recommended it to several people since being here. Maybe next time... More
