The caverns themselves are great; our kids loved walking through the caverns, and they are a great relief on a hot day (55 degrees F in the caverns). The tour guides were good and it was neat to see all the different formations in the caverns. However, the prices charged for access to the park and caverns (not to mention... More

Took my nephews (5 and 7) and my 11 year old daughter. They had a blast and the caverns were very cool.

Positives first... Totally worth going just to ride the alpine slide... Wish we could have ridden it multiple times... AMAZING fun flying down the mountain on the alpine slide! Our kids loved it! The roller coaster at the top was also great... Thankfully we got to do those two things before the lightening started! The employees at the park were... More

I was skeptical to take our kids, ages 8 & 10----but was so glad we did! Even if you just ride the mountain slide, it's worth it! Add in the great roller coaster, the 4D theater(watch all 3 movies!) and a couple of other rides and it's a morning well spent. Arrive when it opens and plan to leave around... More

Not much to this. I had four teenagers with me and they had all they wanted within a couple hours. Over priced for the time and attraction for my group.

Now don't expect Disney World (duh!) but well worth the price. We went in the middle of a hot day and rode a couple of rides. Went to have lunch and came back later since we had an all inclusive pass. The crowds were all gone and we got to ride a bunch with little to no lines. The alpine... More

I was skeptical of paying for 3 adults and a child, while traveling with a group of 10 others, but majority won and I was pleasantly surprised. We purchased the Funday pass and had access to everything. We rode the giant canyon swing, the alpine slides numerous times and the "zip" line. All exhilarating and worth the money. We did... More

We arrived around 11, and made sure to get in all of the "big rides" first, as we were warned it might rain in the afternoon. The swing is our favorite, but the new rides are fun too. Rain came and rides were shut down, so we toured the cave and did inside activities. After it cleared, they opened rides... More

Tram up the mountain closed due to the rain and remote risk of lightning. Growing up in an alpine ski resort, I can say that cable cars are properly earthed and only shut down in case of strong wind gusts. So a bus ride was provided. But on the way back down, extremely long line and lack of information. Confusing... More

Glenwood Caverns Adventure Park is a great place to take the family. There is something for everyone! The thrill rides (the swing, roller coaster, flyer and zipline) will thrill the teens and those of us who think we are teens. The alpine slide was a blast. I think we went on it 4 times. There is plenty to do for... More
