Louisville Mega Cavern, Louisville

4.6
Discover the underground world of Louisville Mega Cavern, once a bomb shelter capable of housing nearly 50,000 people. Today, the cavern features the world's only underground zipline course that allows you to plunge off 20 m (70 ft) cliffs into a pit of darkness. If jumping into complete blackness isn't your thing, take a tram tour of the cavern's many passages. The tram stops at a large worm farm, where insects consume trash in order to produce fertilizer. Be sure to dress appropriately--the cavern is 30 m (100 ft) below the city, and temperatures rarely rise above 13 C (56 F).

  • Trey and Gage were the perfect people to guide us on the trip. They made jokes to ease you throughout the entire zip line. They were friendly and I’m definitely gonna come again. They made a scary experience into a good one.
  • We had an amazing time here. The kids really enjoyed this place. It is well worth the time spent here. If you are on a family vacation this is one of the stops that you need to make. Your kids will thank you. The staff was super friendly as well. It was kept very clean and they are very interactive with the guests.
