I've experienced zip lining before but never underground. It was AWESOME. The climate underground was great. We wore jeans and a long sleeve shirt. As compared to canopy tours, here we didn't have to slow ourselves down. Our wonderful guides, Jakob and Ivy, handled every aspect. They were extremely helpful, personable, and friendly. All while remaining professional and safety conscious.... More

Thank you for your review! It's true, the Mega Cavern is a constant 58* all year. Our Tram drivers are updated with the number of guests for each tour and do a head count to make sure everyone who should be present is accounted for. We're happy you enjoyed your experience on the Mega Tram tour! More

Wow, what a great time!! Not only were our guides David and Chase very meticulous about the safety of each of us but their humor had us rolling and kept us comfortable with the whole "flying under the earth" thing. Recommend hands down!!!!
