Glenwood Caverns Adventure Park, Glenwood Springs

4.3
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. Make Glenwood Caverns Adventure Park a part of your Glenwood Springs vacation plans using our Glenwood Springs day trip planning website .

  • My first visit in many years. Enjoyed gondola to top & conducted tour of Fairy Cave w/naturalist. Cave was warmer than outside due to spring snowstorm on March 18. Few people there. Naturalist was fun-loving woman but didn't speak Spanish for family with young children. Web site had good alternate directions due to construction in area. We didn't do Adventure Park tho young people were.
  • Fun at 12,000 feet. Thrill rides with looooong lines. A little pricey but not out of line. I was hoping the giant swing would cure me of my fear of heights. Nope still got them, now worse. 🤤🤤🤤 Rode the roller coaster 10 times in a row. Although fun, my equilibrium has never returned. 🤢🤢🤢 Rough day.
  • Very fun experience. Make sure to tell the cashier exactly what you want to do and get your wrist band at the base. We waited in line for the coaster only to be turned away because we apparently hadn't paid for it. You'll be pleasantly surprised at all the activities and rides. We had a great time.
  • We had a wonderful time. The tram ride is gorgeous. We loved every minute of the cave tours. The Mine Drop was INTENSE and even though I've got a big fear of falling, I managed to laugh. We were consistently impressed by how genuinely friendly every single employee was and the stunning views are worth the trip.
  • We live in the area and have been to this mountain amusement park at least once a month for either cave tours, the alpine slide, lazer tag, or their new stomach wrenching mine drop. This is a family owned and operated park that is our kids favorite treat time and time again. The gondola ride is a highlight with amazing views at the top in their cozy restaurant/bar, especially at night. Lots to do, but you don't have to walk miles and miles to do it. Great for all ages and nice picnic tables to rest when you have just done too much.
