My fiancé and I had a great time zipping with throughout the caverns. Good 2-3 hour activity. Try to get in a tour group with Trey and Kyle O. They are the best.

We did the electric bike to work. Amber was our tour guide and she was awesome. It's really dark so be prepared for that, you have a headlamp on your helmet and the electric bikes really go so don't worry if you don't have strong...More

Zipped down to Mega Caverns from northern Indiana with another couple as a stop on a weekend getaway. We had zip-lined before, but they had not. The experience was a blast! Our guides, John Mark and Max “Matthew McConaughey” were entertaining and informative. I felt...More

The "Tour" of the 17 miles of tunnels is really only about a mile at most. They try to make up for the short length by taking extremely long to do anything and by telling you pointless stories. WE SPENT 20 MINUTES WATCHING THE TOUR...More

We went through the MegaCavern to see the holiday lights. It was pretty cool to see the underpinnings beneath the Louisville Zoo and the formations in the limestone cavern. I haven't tried the ziplining experience there but would like to.

Fun adventure for a rainy day in Louisville. Our guides, Matt and Mackenzie were knowledgeable about the cavern and made the tour fun.

Zip lines were great. Jay and Justin were wonderful guides, especially with the kids. Highly recommend. Rained all day but we were dry in the cavern. Family fun.

We are going to be there on July 1st and 2nd. Are there any openings on those days for three to go zip lining and one tram?

I am unable to answer this. You would have to call to inquire. They do book up quick.

HI! My husband and I would like to visit the caverns and buy the zip line and possibly the Quest tours. Are there any coupons available yet? I've looked on Groupon and there aren't any available yet. Is there another source I can go to for a coupon? Also, I noticed you offer a military discount, thank you so much! My husband is a retired National Guard veteran. Would he qualify for that discount?
