great day trip with the kids. Our guide was awesome and kept us engaged and laughing. the zip line was a great beginning place. not too short, not too long. highly recommend this family activity. Be aware there are a lot of stairs involved. Not so bad going down, but coming up was a challenge. Call ahead if you have challenges in mibility. I think they will accommodate.

This was such a great experience! This was our first time ziplining and repelling and we loved it! The cave was also filled with interesting things. I am excited to see their expansion. The guides are all super friendly. They make the experience that much better. I definitely recommend it!

Our 8 yr old son went and the guides did an excellent job of working with him. The staff were all super helpful and friendly. The cave tour was informative and the groups were on the smaller side so you could get more out of the tour.

Purchased this for my son and new daughter-in-law as a mini-honeymoon get away. They love being outdoors and this was exactly right up their alley. They had a great time!

About American Cave Museum & Hidden River Cave

After spending millions of years out of sight, wiling away the time by boring a cave deep into the earth, the Hidden River powered the town above with hydroelectricity before pollution forced it to close off from human eyes again. 50 years later, a recovery project restored Hidden River Cave, and today its depths play host to tours of the generator's remains and the underground river still flowing more than 100 feet below the ground.

Hidden River is one of the largest privately operated caves in the Mammoth Cave area, and along with hands-on exploration, American Cave Museum & Hidden River Cave spreads knowledge and awareness with two stories of educational exhibits. There, visitors explore topics such as prehistoric explorers, the history of saltpeter mining, and how to discern stalactites from walruses stuck in the cavern's ceiling.
