I will say that this was a super cool way to do zip lining. Zips were very long and very high and the cave made for a very different environment. Guides, Kyle and Chase, were... read more

We went there for the Christmas lights! It was fun and unique. I thought it was pricey for a drive through ride but we wanted to see it! Don't know if I would go back. It was definitely the biggest caveran I have been in and I have been in quite a few. Salisburg salt mines, all kinds of caves.... More

We were in Louisville for a business conference, and used our free time to visit the cavern to zip line! There were four of us - ranged from age 24 to 69. We had a great time, it was easy to maneuver. Our guides, Carrie and Jacob, were full of entertaining bits and dad jokes, which we loved. They were... More

This place is unique, creative and the temp is constant so the weather is always predictable. Underground zip lines, Christmas lights that you drive through with the entire family and several special events during the year. A neat and unique place to visit.

Thank you for your review George! It's true, the cavern is a constant 58* all year long and of course we're tucked in away from the outside rain and snow. We're happy you continue to enjoy visiting us at the Mega Cavern; we have some great new things in store for 2017! More

I went with family for my granddaughter's birthday. I didn't know if I would enjoy this type of activity or if I'd be able to handle the physical aspects of the course. What was I thinking, I lasted longer than the teens and we all had a great time. Employees that we encountered were kind, courteous, and happy, yes happy.... More

Thank you for your review! Mega Quest birthdays are always a blast for staff, especially with the new additions to the that package we'll be adding this year.

This is such a unique setting for a zip line course, and it was so much fun. The element of dark adds a different type of adrenaline to the tour. I had such a good time with Savannah and JT...they were awesome guides! I have been zip lining in many different environments and settings, but nothing like this! I recommend... More
