America’s First Underground Zip-Line Opens in Louisville

Louisville's Mega Cavern's Mega ZipsThe world’s United State’s first and only underground zip-line has just opened in Louisville. Located in Mega Cavern, a 27 kilometer (17 mile) long former limestone quarry beneath the Louisville Zoo, Mega Zip offers an exhilarating one of a kind adventure.

The course consists of five underground zip-lines running up to 70 feet above the floor, including a dual zip for racing and three challenge bridges.

Certified guides lead the two-hour tours that will take folks into never before seen sections of this man-made cavern.

    Clearly not the first and only underground zip line in the world.
    We have had one here in the UK for several years now, and it’s across a lake…

      Then perhaps more accurately, the “first and only underground zip line in the United States”, or the “world’s first and only publicly accessible zip-line that requires no prior caving experience”.

      Excellent video!

    Man-made cave? 17 mile Former limestone quarry? A cave is naturally formed. Sounds more like a mine to me.
