We went in winter, when many of the rides are closed, and we only did the Caves themselves, so that is all I can speak to. My husband, son, mother, and I were all thrilled by the caves themselves. The natural beauty is breathtaking, and I am so glad we took the time to visit. HOWEVER- and this is a... More

I've read a lot of the reviews by other people on Trip Advisor and personally we thought this place was a rip off. The prices are what you are paying for, for a day at Elitch Gardens in Denver and this amusement park is much smaller. Admittedly we hadn't come to Glenwood Springs to come to this park maybe this...

This was an unexpected stop on our trip out west. From the panoramic gondola ride up the mountain, to the alpine slide, to the entertaining cave tour followed by a delicious lunch with a breathtaking view, I can't say enough about this compact but action packed amusement park on the side of a mountain! Our boys 9 and 12 want... More

This park was both fun and educational. We really enjoyed the cave tours and our guides were extremely knowledgeable. The tram up the mountain had great views. My partner rode the roller coaster on the side of the mountain and said it was one of the best he had ever experienced.

This is not like any other amusement park. The rides are thrilling, and use the elevation of the canyon-top location to take your breath away. Anyone who ever dreamed of soaring out over the canyon or the feeling of being launched out over it, you're going to love this place. If you aren't claustrophobic, do the wild cave tour- it... More

Dear Whilbert01, Thank you so much for the great review! We're glad you enjoyed the cave tours so much. You're right - they offer a nice break from the summer heat since the caves remain at 52 degrees year-round. We hope you can visit us again soon to try some of the other attractions! More

Get the day fun pass, well worth it to do everything. My teenage granddaughters and I (old lady of 73) enjoyed the rides and the caverns very much. Be aware if bad weather comes rides are shut down until it passes. We just went to the restaurant and had a burger while we waited.

Yes it's a little cheesy, but my 13 yr old loved every minute as did adults. Stands apart from other parks since many of rides thrill is based on mountain setting making them unique. Rides seemed safe, cave tour was interesting. Cheapest thing we did all week so I recommend.

A few days ago, we enjoyed the fun park in Breckenridge. The Glenwood Springs Adventure park is significantly less expensive and FAR better! My favorite ride was the alpine coaster -- you ride alone and control the speed. My most relaxing time of the whole vacation was when the coaster was pulled back up the hill at the end of... More

Like others have said, this is a unique amusement park that is worth seeing. The tram ride was fun, and the rides on top of the mountain were fun. We only went through one cave, just not really our thing but it was okay seeing one. Keep my kids entertained for half a day.
