Went during the week to view Christmas lights and was very pleased. Just a small line to get in and once inside traffic moved smoothly. A must see if in the area.

Went on the zip-lining tour with a friend from out of town. What a cool experience! I have zip-lined before, but being underground made it that much more unique. Mike and Hannah were awesome tour guides and made the experience that much better.

We have gone every year for the past few years. This year was a true disappointment. We waited in a line about 20 minuets. We paid $27, I think the price has steadily gone up. We ended up behind the pace-car that went so slow...More

Lights Under Louisville begins to open up with less wait time after Christmas Day. If possible usually the last hour of the night, (9PM-10PM) has the least amount of wait time on any night.
