Very nice people but cave tour and zipline is very short/minimal and basic.

The cave tour was very interesting even though we'd been on 2 cave tours at Mammoth Cave National Park the day before. The museum was good. The zip-line was a little disappointing because it was so short. Also the ad made it seem like it was IN a cave but it isn't.

Very short zip line and cave tour isn’t long, but everyone was great and we enjoyed the entire day.

What You'll Get


Caves contain a strange, dark world far below our own, where bats scrawl crude drawings to make up for the poor TV reception. Explore the deep unknown with this Groupon.

Choose Between Two Options

  • $39 for Cave of Fear and Zip of Fear admission for two (a $76 value)
  • $75 for Cave of Fear and Zip of Fear admission for four (a $152 value)

Beneath the town of Horse Cave, Kentucky, lies the haunted, subterranean abyss of Hidden River Cave, populated by the sprits of ancient Americans, Civil War soldiers, and an army of demons. The cave invites adventure-seekers to descend into the depths of the Cave of Fear, where visitors descend nearly 1,000 feet and escape through the Dungeon of Fear, a frightening labyrinth built into the basement floor of the American Cave Museum. Participants then take the Leap of Fear, a 280-foot zipline trip that launches off a 70-foot ledge and across the top of the dark cavern. The experience is open on Friday and Saturday nights from 8 p.m. to 11 p.m., September 27 through October 26. Proceeds benefit the American Cave Conservation Association.

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.
