Glenwood Caverns Adventure Park, Glenwood Springs

(1,400+ reviews on the web)
Theme Park Water / Amusement Park
Sitting on a mountain 2,134 m (7,000 ft) above Glenwood, Glenwood Caverns Adventure Park features an array of attractions as well as tours of its famous caves. Your visit begins with a scenic tram ride up to the park, the only way it can be accessed. Once you arrive, you can choose from three cave tours. The wild tour is the longest and most strenuous of the three, exploring less-visited areas of the caves. Other attractions include the first alpine coaster in North America, a 4-D theater, climbing wall, and laser tag. Thrill seekers shouldn’t miss the giant canyon swing, which propels you into Glenwood Canyon at speeds of up to 80 km/h (50 mph). Bring a sweater, as the caves are often cold. Plan your visit to Glenwood Caverns Adventure Park and a wealth of other attractions, well-known and undiscovered, using our Glenwood Springs travel itinerary planner.

  • I really want to give this place 5 stars. It's a ton of fun and the kids had a blast. The rides are all unique enough to keep everyone entertained. The park in late May/early June wasn't busy so there were no lines. You can bring in your own food & drink which keeps cost down and controls what you eat. And everyone we met was super friendly and helpful. The only issue we had is the value. If we had to wait in line for rides the price is a tad steep at $50+. To top it off, the day we went two of the major rides were not operating which meant we had even less to do. Thankfully it was a slow day and the kids had a blast anyway.
  • My family really enjoyed the two cave tours which took 40 minutes each. It cost $30 for adults and $26 for kids. We would've done the tickets for the rides, but our two children couldn't have gone on most of the rides so we were just limited to the tours. The tour was informative and certainly something you don't see every day. It would've been fun to try some of the rides there. The gondola ride up is a bit of an adventure of you're not used to going up ski lifts.
  • We came for cave tours not the amusement part, however my kids ages 3-14 really enjoyed both! The roller coaster and zip eagle were especially appreciated. The tour guides are very nice and entertaining. The caves are impressive - they have both big caves and lots of narrow tunnels between the caves. You feel like you are a character of one of those adventure novels. It's an amazing idea to build this type of park up here. We got a pretty good package staying at the Hotel Glenwood Springs, they also offer some discounts for tram rides as well as for the park tickets. I subtracted one star because we had to wait for the tram to go up for two hours, which is unacceptable. They had some technical problems. After two hours they finally put us on a bus, so no gondola ascend for us. If I knew this would happen, I would have used the whole wasted morning time on a hike or something instead and do the caves in the afternoon.
  • This morning at 9:46 am we went to the park that opened at 9:00am. The line to just buy tickets was 54minutes. Then the gondola was broken and so they were busing people up the mountain. Even though the park charges $16 just for the gondola ride they were not offering a discount since their gondala was broken. Also, the wait for the bus to just get into the park was extremely long. The Price was $201 for 1 adult and 3 kids! Don't waste your time and money.
  • What a great place! The views are incredible and so are the rides. If you have the money this is a must see.
