“Mammoth Cave Adventures, located in Cave City, KY,
is the first and original Canopy styled tour in the state…
The Lines will have you weaving in and out of deep
green canopies and over lush open meadows, traveling
anywhere form 600 feet to 950 feet at speeds of 20 to
40 MPH.” -Mammoth Cave Adventures
I dream I can fly at least once a week. Every time I am asked what superpower I would choose (yes, this happens often in my house) I say to be able to fly. Maybe this is why I love zip-lining so much. I have zipped over the treetops in many places but most recently I zipped with Mammoth Cave Adventures with my husband and teenagers.
Before we hit the ropes, our guides helped us get our safety gear on. They doubled and tripled checked to make sure we would be safe. They also assured us they would break for us and make sure we didn’t hit any trees. We were ready to “fly”!
We flew over the caves, 100 feet above the ground, on five separate breath taking zips running from 330 to 990 feet. We walked over three sky bridges and climbed a staple ladder to one platform during our one hour zip-lining tour.
Horseback riding is another activity my family loves. We also went on a one hour horseback ride at Mammoth Cave Adventures. While waiting for our adventure to begin, we warmed ourselves by the fire pit and petted the horses. Once on the trail, the terrain was a little rougher than we are used to but we still enjoyed the ride and the information about the area.
The property at Mammoth Cave Adventures offers beautiful views, exciting experiences and friendly people. One of the best parts of Mammoth Cave Adventures though, may be the pricing. Zip-lining is only $59 a person and horseback riding only $25 each. Coupons and discounts can sometimes be found online making it an even better deal. Reservations for zip-lining and horseback riding are encouraged and can be made here. What better way to experience the beauty rich area of Cave City, KY than by swinging or riding through it??
The experiences Mammoth Cave Adventures offer unique ways to experience the beauty of Cave City, KY. In addition to zip-lining and horse back riding, they offer a Tarzan Swing and free fall Drop Tower.
“In addition to the Zip Lines you will experience the
excitement of walking in the tree tops with the 2 Sky
Bridges or the exhilaration of being cast up into the air
on a Giant Super Swing. Are you ready for The Last Step?
Take a Leap of Faith when you Step off the 70 foot
Mammoth Cave Drop Tower the ONLY one of it’s kind in
Kentucky.” –Mammoth Cave Adventures
