Louisville's Otherworldly Underground Cavern

January 01, 2019

The New Year is always a good time for a new adventure. Louisville is home to the perfect starting point — a whole new world waiting underneath your feet ready for you to explore. The 100-acre Louisville Mega Cavern opened out of a 19th-century limestone quarry, is one of the largest caverns in the United States. But the adventure here is so much more than just a large underground cave to explore. Nowhere else in the world can you ride along an underground zip line, test your strength with a fully underground aerial ropes course, or cruise over 45 trails, Jump Lines, Pump Tracks, Dual Slalom and Single Track in an underground bike park. If you prefer history over high-adrenaline, hop on board the Mega Tram or the Electric Bike Tour for a look at the geology, mining, recycling, and green technology behind the cavern. And, with a large special underground space, it’s an excellent spot to host a memory-making event!
