Kentucky Down Under Adventure Zoo and Mammoth Onyx Cave

You can feed and pet kangaroos, even see baby kangaroos peek out of their mamas' pouches (There are other animals as well). Rent a golf cart to feel like you are on a wild safari. Plus, a cave tour is included with your admission. Awesome cave!

The cave, which is lit with nature-enhancing colored lights, has a convenient entrance in the zoo's parking lot.
