The underground kayak is worth the trip. Our guide, Noah, was entertaining and he was very informative of the mine and its history.

Loved it! The guide gave much history that intrigued our kids. We saw bats in the cave and sunken objects in the crystal clear water.

Our family of 9 did the cave boat tour....it was neat, kids loved it. It is a 1 hour boat ride thru the cave. Worth spending a few bucks...well $45 per person...for a little fun!

I'm an avid kayaker and hiker. We stopped by Thrillsville to add some variety to our Red River Gorge Hiking trip. The cave kayaking tour is PHENOMENAL. It lasts about 70 minutes total--that's at least an hour in the water. The two guides have the...More

We had four adults who did the upper ropes course and it was a blast! I was worried it wouldn't be worth $40 since it didn't look like much, but it was well worth every penny. You need to be in pretty good shape since...More

My son had an amazing time. The staff was very personable and helpful. Thrillsville was the highlight of our trip. If time would have allowed we would have spent our entire day there. We look forward to returning. We will bring more friends next time!

Who knew this little gem was located in the heart of the Gorge?? The kayaking trip is a guided, easy trip through an old rock quarry and is suitable for most ages. Everything is provided except your jacket. You'll not be disappointed!

We did the kayaking in the limestone cave. It goes way back in and you NEED a coat. I somehow didn't get that memo and that you need to be there 30 min. early but they made it work. Really a very peaceful kayak. Then...More

Kayaking through this old mine was a new experience and definitely worth it. Wearing a headlamp on your helmet you are able to help light this dark mine (the only natural light you will see is at the entrance/exit If your tour). Be careful in...More

I am familiar with most of the kayaks they used. They have a weight limit of 250#. But you would need to check with Thrillsville for sure about that and about the date also.
