The Christmas light show is magnificent. I’ve never seen anything like it. The temperature is around 50 degrees so you can put you window down. We go every year and say it’s for our grandson but we enjoy it just as much as he does.

The positive and win to this purchase was the kiddos (teenagers)had a great time. Kids would give it a four star when asked! Staff was polite. The negative was that we came in from out of state, called ahead to arrive within 20 minutes of call to ensure enough bikes would be available. Two of us purchased this and only able to use one as they ran out of bikes. Kids used the last 4. Inquired about other activities, but not available. They offered the extension of coupon until September, but again being from out of state, will be a loss of purchase. Hope we get back to Kentucky before September!

The cavern itself was very cool and my husband and kids had a blast. It's very expensive to rent bikes and they are in poor condition. That being said it's very hard to judge with children how they will do on certain bikes out on the course.( I would say 8 and up to be able to ride the course) My daughter was having problems with size and the bike seat on the course and we were given a hard time exchanging bikes. I would recommend bringing your own bikes if you are able and save the 25.00 per person (which was 100 for us) rental. ( We flew on vacation so did not have the option of bringing our own) It was 160.00 for the course and rental for family of 4 and we stayed about 2 hours.

If you're coming here for the mountain bike tracks you won't be disappointed! They have areas for all riding styles from beginners to experts. It's an absolute blast! And the fact that you're riding in a giant cavern makes it that much more awesome, not to mention if it's rainy out and you still wanna ride your bike it's the perfect place.

We took our 10-year-old, 12-year-old, 14-year-old. It was really really cool, especially if you love mountain biking, or BMX biking.

What You'll Get

Without the nation's massive man-made caverns, we wouldn't have access to natural deposits of Play-Doh, glow-in-the-dark Gak, and Michael Bolton records. Gaze at platinum-selling sedimentary strata with today's Groupon: for $6, you get a one-hour tour of the Louisville Mega Cavern, located near the Louisville Zoo on Taylor Avenue. Check Louisville Mega Cavern's website for seasonal availability.

Once a massive limestone quarry that has seen more than four decades of rock-blasting, the Louisville Mega Cavern contains 17 miles of corridors located about 100 feet below the ground. During the tour, which lasts about an hour (valued at $13.50 for adults, $8 for children ages three to 11, and $12 for seniors and military), you'll explore the subterranean abyss on a guided tramcar. Spot a replica of the Cold War–era civil defense fallout shelter, designed to protect upstanding citizens from Soviet Stay Puft Marshmallow Man attacks. Eye-feasters can spot exquisite rock formations under the light of strategically placed lamps, and with no walking on the tour, relax as they take in historical information on the cave's early mining operations. Few will experience claustrophobia within the cave's four million square feet of space, an area so immense that the Empire State Building could squeeze inside and have sufficient spire-room left in its sleeping bag.

Temperatures inside the Louisville Mega Cavern hover around a brisk but comfortable 58 degrees all year, so cold-blooded spelunkers should consider wearing a jacket or fur tuxedo. Step inside the earthen expanse and avoid the sky's oppressive solar disco ball with today's Groupon to Louisville Mega Cavern.

About Louisville Mega Cavern

The newest attraction at Louisville Mega Cavern, Mega Underground Bike Park just opened in February 2015 in addition to Mega Quest, opened in Fall 2013 and claims to be the only underground ropes challenge course in the world. The Mega Cavern, originally a limestone mine, was mined for 42 years, beginning in the 1930s, and is now the largest building in the state of Kentucky. The cavernous facility utilizes its 90-foot-high thoroughfares to unite guests with an exhilaration previously known only to highly caffeinated miners—Mega Zips.......ziplining in a cavern. Customers can purchase separate tickets for a variety of attractions. Open daily throughout the year. The Lights Under Louisville show running during the Christmas season, the Mega Tram, which runs beginning in mid-January through early October. During Mega Zips tours of up to two hours, amateur spelunkers will stream across the subterranean's six underground ziplines and dual racing lines under the sage supervision of the cavern's ACCT-certified experts. Along the way, guides will entertain guests with tales of the cavern’s rich history and uncanny impressions of stalagmites.
