My husband and I have lived in Louisville for the better part of 10 years. We had participated in the Lights Under Louisville event for several years and while they are unique the display always leaves me a bit disappointed. I chalked it up as just having my expectations way too high. My parents were interested in zip-lining at the... More

Thank you for your review. The cavern is a constant 58* all year long, throughout all 100 acres of the cavern. We're happy you enjoyed the Mega Zips tour with Candra and Evan! More

Ziplining among the trees is great, but ziplining underground is even better! There's something about jumping off the edge and flying down the line, admiring the cavern, that makes for a "rock"-in' good time! Also, the guides Max and Jenae were very entertaining and insightful about the city of Louisville..

A great new adventure in ziplining. The cavern was dark and a cool 58 degrees. The subdued lighting made the runs more fun. The guides, Max and Cody, were entertaining as well as informative about the history of the mine.

Six zips, each different from one another and two rickety bridge crossings made for a fun visit. My three teens loved it. Mood lighting made the whole experience very interesting. My boys also enjoyed the bike track. Shout out to our guides John Mark and Carrie for a nice job. Do this if you are in the area or make... More

Had lots of fun on this adventure. Had been zip lining before and we thought this one the group was too large for two instructors. Also we think it was a little overpriced for what we got. I would suggested maybe some picture opportunities while guest are zip lining.
