World’s only fully underground zip-line course!
Underground Ziplining at the Louisville Mega Cavern has been on my family’s bucket list for quite sometime. I went ziplining in Costa Rica last year and when I stumbled across the Mega Cavern I knew this would be one of our summer stops for the kiddos.
The Louisville Mega cavern is so much more than just Underground Ziplining; it’s an underground adventure rich in history, geology, and mining so if you are expecting to just zip line you will be in for an amazing treat.
The Louisville Mega Cavern is a completely underground, approximately 100 acre, man-made cavern waiting for your family to enjoy all it has to offer in a cool 58º temperature all year long; so make sure you bring a jacket because if you are like me I stay cold and 58º is freezing to me. So wrap up!!!
The cavern is not just for fun, but was built to withstand a tornado; or even fallout from a nuclear attack. And for this reason during the Cuban missile crisis in the early 1960’s, plans were made to house 50,000 people in the natural bomb shelter in the case of an atomic bomb.
The Cavern includes everything from MEGA Zips- an adventurous and scary experience featuring six underground zip lines. This tour is guaranteed to get your heart racing and your adrenaline pumping. If you are looking for a one-of-a-kind adventure, MEGA ZIPS is the place to visit. My bonus daughter Camille was deathly afraid of heights when we started the zips, but after the third zip she was a pro and all of her fears were gone; until the last zip which is the dual racing zip!! Can you say OMG!! I almost pooped my pants, but it was so much fun and well worth it.
We had a great experience zipping with our guides Cameron and Josh! They were reassuring and hilarious!!! It was my husband and daughters first-time zip lining and they made sure we felt safe and had a great time!! The zip lining was not very scary until we reached the suspension bridge, but we took our time and guess what we did not die. Cameron and Josh distracted us with jokes and conversation like pros!
I never knew I could be whizzing along at 50+mph so high above the ground — while being underground! If you are visiting Louisville or live in close proximity to KY the Louisville Mega Cavern will not disappoint.
Have you been zip lining? Better yet have you been Underground Ziplining?
The cavern is also available for rent for your private party, meeting, or event.
