Fun daytrip through great caves., original discovered in 1895. Plenty of photo ops inside the caves and also nice and cool during the summer heat. The ride to top of mountain had spectacular views overlooking the valley, from the gondola.

We've been to the cavern before and enjoyed it immensely. But we have visited the amusement park several times over the last few years. They have been great in adding new adventure rides, such as the Canyon Flyer. We find the staff very helpful and friendly. We would like to single out the lady that worked the Gemstone Panning Station.... More

Great fun for families! Have done a lot of improvements over the year. Really like the one price package for all your photos. Saves me from lugging my camera around. See you next year!!

My tweenie sons and I had a good time with this. It's in the most amazing location..there's nothing like a roller coaster that takes you over the lip of a 1000' deep canyon.... The attractions are a little smaller and fewer than Elitch Gardens, but there's an innocence about the park that reminds me of simpler times. Don't get me... More

Saw this on Most Extreme Amusement Parks and made a note to visit if I was in Colorado. We planned a trip to Denver and we included this and it was well worth the drive from Denver. The Mountain Coaster is one of the best we've been on. The swing is fantastic since you fly over the canyon. The seats... More

I admit that the park is geared toward families. We do not have children but my husband and I had a great time here. Worth the money. The cave tour guide indicated that the caves are supported by the park fees, so that may be why they don't gouge you for everything. The rides are fun and a bit scary... More

I went with a lady friend, but this isn't really geared for middle aged adults. I think that teens (and adventurous younger kids) would LOVE this. The rides themselves aren't that unusual, but many of them have fantastic views or even fling you out over the edge of a cliff! This is NOT recommended if you have a fear of... More

Tix $45 p/p. Get there early, the open at 9am. Lines are short at 9:30, getting long by 11am. Ride the Alpine Roller Coaster FIRST as that line takes the longest to get through. I wasn't a fan of the Cliffhanger Roller Coaster because it was too much jerking around. My neck hurt after, but the kids loved it. The... More

We stopped here to try white water rafting as a family for the first time. The day before decided to try the cavern tours. Ended up getting the all day pass and doing everything. Our favorite was the sled ride down the mountain.
