I have taken a tour of the Mega Cavern both in my car and in the tram. I enjoyed seeing the sights especially at Christmas time. The layouts about the wartime issues were very interesting.

We took some clients and a group of colleagues for a team event and we all had a lot of fun. It is a moderate course so it was nice for our group of relative newbies and some of us that had an issue with heights. Our tour guides were helpful and made it an easy and enjoyable time.

I came here in December for Lights Under Louisville. The line went fast. We arrived shortly after it opened. They do a fantastic job with the light displays. The drive through took about 20 minutes. Well worth the money. I would highly recommend this. Very unique attraction

They were very informative about the safety and how to have the best zip line experience with their tips. It was more... More

Our family has a tradition of viewing the Christmas lights and decorations in the cavern every year. It is really neat to see, but kind of expensive (I think $20-25 per car). The kids (ages 2 and 4) and my husband wouldn't miss it though!

My fiancé and I actually went without the kids, and although feeling slightly guilty, we loved it. Our guides were Mack and Ethan, which helped make our experience even more fun and unique. Had a blast, great adrenaline rush, and we would love to go back to do the Mega Quest. Thanks guys!!

Absolutely loved the Mega Tram! The ages in our group are 40, 60 and (2) 11 year old boys. They loved the tram! Our tour guide Juanita was very friendly, funny and knowledgeable! It was really a great time! The boys did the Mega Quest afterwards and had a blast!
