Fudge Factory
 

At Kentucky Down Under Adventure Zoo we can actually say that our homemade fudge is world famous! Since we are in the heart of Kentucky Cave Country and have hundreds of thousands of domestic and international tourists visiting Mammoth Cave National Park and the other caves in the area, we attract visitors from all over the world. When they sample and experience our homemade fudge for the first time, they are hooked on our delicious fudge. Nothing satisfies a sweet tooth better than a piece of our soft and velvety fudge!

When you are visiting Kentucky Down Under Adventure Zoo or Mammoth Onyx Cave, stop by the Giftshop for a free sample.   ( Learn more... )

Land of Lories

The Land of Lories is a giant enclosure that houses stunning, colorful lorikeets. An interpreter at the entrance to the Aviary will be happy to give you a cup of nectar and lead you into the area. Once inside, hold the nectar cup out, and these brilliant, inquisitive birds will land on your head, shoulders and arms and will help themselves to your nectar cup until it’s all gone. You can expect to spend around 15 to 20 minutes inside the Land of Lories.
