Winter passes was pricey...most rides closed during our visit. Kids loved alpine coaster. Cave tour was ok however tour guides were very knowledgeable and friendly.

Our girls have enjoyed the Caverns several times over the last few years. The attractions that are open in the winter are limited but still fun. But if you can go after they fully open for the season (after early May) it is even more fun. The food in the restaurant is good - a limited menu that is competently... More

We came to Glenwood Springs for a spring break getaway. We truly enjoyed the Glenwood Caverns. The cave tours were a lot of fun and well worth the price. All ages will enjoy this part of the adventure park. We really enjoyed our tour guide and all staff really. Everyone was very nice and you can tell all staff takes... More

Loved the employees! Everyone was so kind and helpful. We enjoyed the alpine coaster, the big swing, and cave tours. A fun way to spend the day and the weather was just right! My two wishes: their "restaurant" to be better staffed for busy times. IE: spring break. We thought that by eating closer to 2pm we would miss the... More

I went to Glenwood Caverns Adventure Park because it was really the only thing to do. It was so hot and going up there made it even worse. I didn't go on any of the rides because it was to hot or they were to scary for me. There is one ride that literally swings you out over the mountain.... More

Thank you for taking the time to share your review. We're sorry to hear that you did not enjoy your visit to the park. In the summer, mornings and evenings are the best times to avoid the heat. The caves are also nice and cool, 52 degrees all year. Your feedback is important to us. More

You have to take a trolly ride up the mountain to access the caverns. In the past I've had issues of being "trapped" on top the mountain due to "technical difficulties" and this trip was no exception. In my opinion it's a tactic during slow season to keep you up there to dine or buy more souvenirs. That being said... More

Dear Linda, We're glad to hear that you enjoyed your recent visit and cave tour. Our unique location on top of the mountain comes with many advantages, like the beautiful views, and also some challenges. These challenges, which are common to all areas accessed via gondola, include susceptibility to weather and occasional technical difficulties. We do our very best to... More

We really enjoyed our tour of the Glenwood Caverns last week. We took our two grandsons (11 and 13) and they were fascinated. First we rode up on the tram for about 15 minutes, then toured the nice gift shop at the top. It was just a short, easy walk with the guide down to the cave entrance and we... More

Everything was OK, but go in the summer. Many attractions were closed because of the temperature. A little bit expensive, but they do have a 'manual' coaster that it's wonderful.

Dear Rodrigo, Thank you for visiting us this winter. It's good to hear that you enjoyed the Alpine Coaster. During the winter, our tram, Alpine Coaster, 4D theater, laser tag arena, restaurant and cave tours are open. The rest of our rides and attractions are seasonal, so there's definitely more going on in the summer months. We appreciate your feedback... More

Most of this attraction was closed, due to it being wintertime, but the cave tour was open. Our group visited here and really enjoyed the warmth of the cave after being out in the snow. Along the tour, there's an opportunity to walk out onto the side of the mountain for some spectacular views. The tour runs about 45 minutes... More

Dear Spiritwolf922, We're glad you enjoyed your cave tour! Considering the caves remain at 52 degrees year-round, they always feel quite toasty during the chilly winter months, and the snowy views are always amazing. We hope you can visit us again sometime when the rest of the adventure park is open! Thanks so much for the great review; we really... More
