Louisville Mega Cavern

The expert tour guides at Louisville Mega Cavern propel guests through a 4-million-square-foot subterranean expanse, slinking in and out of more than 100 acres of manmade passageways. Originally a limestone mine, the Mega Cavern 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—ziplining. During two-hour zipline tours, amateur spelunkers will stream across the subterrain’s five 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. Guides also give tram tours as well as seasonal Lights Under Louisville tours, a holiday light show underground.

Customer Reviews

I had never heard of the Mega Caverns before buying my Groupon, but we enjoyed our tour very much. The staff were great and very accommodating, rushing to help us get on the 2pm tour we had wanted, and our tour guide, Kevin ("Mega Kevin", haha) was very funny and knowledgable.

Our daughters (ages 15 and 21) enjoyed the zip lines while my husband and I enjoyed the tram tour. Both sets of tour guides were fabulous. The employees in the gift shop were extremely helpful and knowledgable. We will recommend Mega Cavern to friends and will probably return.
