Glenwood Caverns Adventure Park, Glenwood Springs

(4.1/5 based on 1,400+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • This is a great place to take the family & spend the day. It's kind of pricey, but there is a lot you can do. Food is very expensive, so you might want to eat before you go or pack a lunch for the fam...  more »
  • It was a good time a little pricey for food and no where that was very warm as we went on a colder day. Dan was an excellent tour guide for both caves we toured today.  more »
  • We toured several of the caves, and the guides made things interesting with their descriptions of the history and science. The ride up and back was fun but cold (we went in November).  more »

  • We had a great guide who made this adventure fun, educational and entertaining. There are actually 2 different tours for the ticket price. Both are large caves and well maintained. Very beautiful and interesting. One of the caves has a unique light show. The guide told us they may have discovered a 3rd cavern. If things develop the way they think it could be open for viewing in 2017.
  • Staff - The staff were polite, fun and helpful. Donna, the bartender, recommended local restaurants for us. The coaster operator's, DJ and Megan (think it was Megan), were very friendly and entertaining. Carla, the Fairy Cave tour guide was knowledgeable, fun, friendly and had a terrific personality, I really enjoyed the Cave tour and feel lucky she was our guide! I wish I had cash on me to tip her, bring cash to tip your cave guides!
  • Fun rides, caves are sweet. You have to do the speleobox (~10' cube box with a maze of "caves" inside) if you're adventurous and limber. It says not recommended for over 6', but at 6'1" I managed it! The coaster was the best, bar none. Get the day pass so you don't have to pay for each thing you do.
  • Loved this place so so much. Spent two days here during my honeymoon, one at the hot springs and a second at the adventure park. The gondola ride to the park and caverns allowed for great breathtaking photos. The cavern tours were awesome and unique. We rode the mountain coaster super fun and thrilling as well the gift shop and fudge shop were amazing.
  • Drove from Phoenix, AZ to ride the giant swing and the luge coaster. Quite awesome! Had some nice affordable items in the gift shop. Relaxing ride to the top of the mountain in the gondola . Every employee we came into contact with was very amiable. Loved the low $ pay per ride structure, although the price to get up the mountain seemed a bit high.
