My husband and I were vacationing in the Cincinatti area and were looking for one last fun thing to do before we had to head home. I saw this on trip advisor and it caught my eye because of the volume of favorable reviews. We didn't realize until we went on the tram tour that it's not a natural, but... More

My husband and I did the zip line tour on a weekday. The experience was great and we felt safe the entire time. We had Jay and Mack as our guides and they were the absolute best. They made us laugh and answered a lot of our questions about the caves. Highly recommend!!!

We have done many zip lines around the region. I will say that this is one of the most unique that we have done. The "indoor" aspect makes it stand out. If this is your first zip line experience I would suggest that you understand how different it is from outdoor experiences. We loved it but I would not make... More

Everyone involved in the Zip Line was friendly and professional. When gearing up, they took the time to make sure everyone had the equipment properly secured. All along the tour, Colin and Cameron stopped before each new thing we were going to do, and explained it carefully, making sure everyone understood. They engaged in a friendly way with the group,...

The Louisville mega cavern is a great zip line tour. Plan on about 1.5 hours. Be prepared to say WOW as you pass over the deep caverns inside the cave. Highly recommended, Not suitable for pre teens in my opinion.

We have been here many times. We always go for the Christmas lights. My kids love the obstacle course and zip lines. My boys had an awesome birthday party there.
