Where are we going today?
Who loves zipling - feeling that adrenaline rush as you make your way at high speeds? And who loves getting on those rope courses and trying to master the challenges and obstacles? So do we! What if we told you Louisville Mega Cavern lets you do both those things - only 100 feet underground. Crazy right!
But it's no joke - Louisville Mega Cavern is the WORLDS only fully underground ropes course and zip lines.
Not only that - they have tram tours too!
The caverns are man made, and located right underneath the city of Louisville, and there are a number of activities you can choose during your incredible adventure. The Mega Zips course takes you on a 2 1/2 hour exhilarating adventure to deep and hidden sections of the caves.
Six zip lines and two challenge bridges are ready to be tackled by those aged 7 and over. There is even a fun dual racing zip!
Mega Quest is an incredible aerial ropes challenge course for those little adventurers aged 5 and up. Are you ready to take on the 76 (yes 76!) challenge elements!?
If you want something a bit slower paced, check out the Mega Tram which takes you on a fascinating adventure rich in geology, history, and mining. There are 17 miles of corridors to explore, and this is a perfect tour for all ages! Over the course of an hour you will check out all the formations in the caves, learn fun facts about the early mining and even come across some surprises!
Are you ready for your underground adventure? We certainly are! Let’s go!

Any Top Tips?
Make sure you don't wear open toed shoes, sandals, flip flops or shoes without a back! If you do, you won't be able to participate. Deep pockets are great too, or pockets with a zip or velcro. .

My first time going it was just so great. I love this place, if there is anywhere I would go zip lining to every time it would be here. Everyone that worked there were so kind, made you feel welcomed, and they also made you feel safe.

Did the zip line tour. Awesome! Very cool. The guides, Kevin and Will, were great; hilarious and informative. I'm a 43 year old soldier with over 26 years of continuous service and my wife (a 30 something hottie) seek adventure and the coolness factor. This place delivered both! What a great business concept. By the way, been married to my hot wife for 18.5 years and she gets hotter every year! HOAH!!!

While the Zip lines might be great (I didn't do the big one but my children enjoyed the rope course because they did not have to pay for it); the tram tour was very disappointing. It was an hour-long ride through a limestone mine that is now an underground storage facility. The guides try their best but boring is boring. Next time they should give out dust masks as well. During the tour there were numerous diesel trucks driving through the mine- creating dust and cancerous diesel exhaust. In addition, their repeated reference to “recycling”...Read More

Lots of fun. Our guides (Max, and Cameron) were entertaining, and professional.
Our first time, and it was a blast, the views were great

During the tour there were numerous diesel trucks driving through the mine- creating dust and cancerous diesel exhaust. In addition, their repeated reference to “recycling” is misleading. They do not “recycle” per se; they dispose of “inorganic material” into an underground “landfill”. “Inorganic material”, aka, garbage, is dumped into old parts of the mine or they use it to raise the floor. It is misleading. Tons of old vehicles stuffed in the ground to raise the floor when they should have been recycled, i.e., used to make other cars, etc.
