Did the Mega Caverns Zipline tour. I was the only person on the tour at 8:30am and we zipped (pun intended) through the course in 45 min or less. While it was not my 1st time ziplining the difference in environment made me a bit nervous which was great. There were a couple bridge crossings which were also fun. The... More

Love the Mega Caverns! Took the general tour of the caverns once and enjoyed the history of the caverns including how it used to be a shelter. Always go to the Christmas Lights Under Louisville and am thrilled by the beautiful lights and music. Their gift shop isn't too shabby either! :)

We live in Louisville but had never been to Light Under Louisville until a few years ago. Now we've made it an annual tradition. The lights are awesome and for us, there is a nice mix of secular and religious aspects to the show. The displays don't change much from year to year but there are so many different displays...

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 friendly and very helpful. They did all of the work with the equipment so we just got to relax and enjoy the ride. I had... 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
