Louisville Mega Cavern, Louisville

(7,000+ reviews on the web)
Cave
Discover the underground world of Louisville Mega Cavern, once a bomb shelter capable of housing nearly 50,000 people. Today, the cavern features the world's only underground zipline course that allows you to plunge off 20 m (70 ft) cliffs into a pit of darkness. If jumping into complete blackness isn't your thing, take a tram tour of the cavern's many passages. The tram stops at a large worm farm, where insects consume trash in order to produce fertilizer. Be sure to dress appropriately--the cavern is 30 m (100 ft) below the city, and temperatures rarely rise above 13 C (56 F). Using our custom trip planner, Louisville attractions like Louisville Mega Cavern can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.

  • Did mega quest yest with my wife and 8 year old son. Amazing experience! Check in was a bit confusing because they couldn't find our online reservations, but as soon as they got that squared away we were set. The man that got us started (believe his name was Cameron) was fantastic! Very friendly and helpful. The equipment was top notch. Very easy to use, even for our son, and extremely safe. Quite the work out. Some obstacles a good challenge. We were definitely sweating. Zips were very fun. Great time!
  • We had a GREAT time, there is something for everyone, of any age. With a party of 9 we all split up, 3 went Zip Lining, 3 on the Ropes and 3 took the Tram. Alicia and Trey were our guides on the Zip Line; they put safety first, both were informative on the history and make up of the cavern. I would highly recommend for Family fun.
  • Expensive, but totally worth it. Our zip tour was over two hours of fast and fun zipping. The heights were enough to make my palms sweat, but our tour guides Max and Ben took good care of us. They were funny like Disney Jungle Cruise guides. And they had minty fresh breath! This was one of the coolest experiences I've done with my son. I wish we had had something like it in Utah.
  • Overall the Mega Cavern is a great concept. Who would have imagined that there is an activity center underneath the zoo. The entrance way was a little confusing...trucks and big rigs driving in and out. But once inside, the sight is amazing and colorful. The price for the zip line seemed a bit high, so we opted to only do the Tram tour. The tour last about an hour. Greg was our guide and did a great job of entertaining throughout the tour. Without him, the tour would have been uneventful. Overall, the Tram tour was good, but something that I would do just once. The quest and zip line is probably more suited for older kids.
  • Love it here on the zip lines! Had an amazing trip with my family of 4! Highly recommend this place to other family's and couples! Our guides were Evan and Trevor! They were great and sweet/funny! Let our group have a great time!
