Can I give more than 5 stars? This was an incredible stop. We were there about 3 hours, easily could have stayed longer. It was way more interactive than I expected (I mean, we got to pet kangaroos!!) and it felt very friendly and relaxed. This was truly a highlight for us!

It was worth the groupon rate, but not any more. Now, with that said, it was raining the day we went and a lot of the animals were hiding, but the cave tour which we thought would be great since it's inside turned out to be a marathon to see how fast the guide could get out. The guide stopped once or twice to talk but could only be heard by the first few people in line. It took us about 5 minutes.

Had a great time at the park, all the shows and extras with the exception of paying for the golf cart rental were worth it. The cave tour is awesome and was one of the highlights of our week.

About Kentucky Down Under Adventure Zoo

Celebrating its 25th anniversary in 2015, Kentucky Down Under Adventure Zoo offers two unique attractions—the Kentucky Down Under animal park and the Mammoth Onyx Cave—in one spot. Original owners Bill and Judy Austin are to thank for this union, joining forces to celebrate both of their hometowns (Bill from Kentucky and Judy from Australia) in the name of their business.

At the animal park, guests not only learn about animals and their habitats, but they also have the opportunity to interact with some of the critters. Expert guides teach groups how to approach Red and Eastern Gray kangaroos before letting visitors pet the furry marsupials. Visitors can also spy other outback-dwelling animals such as emus, sculcata tortoises, and a Patagonian cavy, or turn their eyes skyward in the aviary to experience the songs and colors of rainbow lorikeets as they sip from cups of nectar. The friendly birds are prone to landing on guests' heads, shoulders, and arms, making for fun photo opportunities.

The other prime attraction is Mammoth Onyx Cave, which was discovered in 1799 by a young girl named Martha Woodson. Since 1921, the cave tours have been a popular tourist destination. Filled with spectacular formations, the cave runs an eighth of a mile. On cave tours designed for kids and families, tour guides use rustic lanterns to paint a picture of what life was like in the cave in the 18th century.
