Old Friends Day at the Louisville Mega Cavern 

Weeeeeeee! On Sept. 8th Old Friends is going Zippin’ in honor of our summer guest, Zippy Chippy, the losingest horse in history. Zippy is on loan to us from our New York farm, Cabin Creek. We are having a zipline day at the Louisville Mega Cavern. Help us raise funds by making a monetary pledge of your choice (minimum of $5) to one of our Zippy Zipliners. Old Friends office manager Sylvia Stiller is leading the charge! Also zipping will be Marti McGinnis of Happy Art/Iota McHippus, Old Friends tour guides Teri Haverfield, Ellen Zehnder, Nick Newman, Carol Ayers, and our volunteers Linda Spears, Vivian Rowe, Tim Wilson and Kelly Eggleton. Email [email protected] if you’d like to make a pledge. There are five zip lines to complete along with several tricky rope bridges. It will be fun and challenging!

MEGA ZIPS is the only underground zipline adventure tour in the world. The fascinating cavern is a 100 acre former limestone pit mine that housed the largest civil defense shelter in Kentucky with provisions for 50,000 people to live underground for an extended period of time. Seventy percent of the Louisville Zoo sits over the cavern. To read more about the Mega Cavern & MEGA ZIPS click here.

The Louisville Mega Cavern is also assigning us a permanent promo code for our supporters. If you want to do the MEGA ZIPS tour on your own, use promo code OLDF12 to receive $5.00 off. MEGA ZIPS will also donate $5.00 back to Old Friends! We greatly appreciate the MEGA ZIPS support. This will be a fun and daring event!
