We had a ton of fun. There were high winds when we went to ride down, so as a safety precaution they shut down the tram and we all took a bus. I appreciate that they put our safety first! It was a little but of an inconvenience but Mother Nature was the one to blame. Besides, what an adventure!... More

This is a fun park but I wished there were more rides for smaller children. My son is 4 and could only go on the Giddy Up by himself. I had to buy tickets to ride with him on other rides and that was quite expensive.

My family and I came here over a rainey Memorial weekend. We did the tram ride and cave tours for $141.00 for a family of six. The tram ride was great after my wife got over her panic attack for fear of heights. The tram car fits 6 people comfortably. It's mostly encased in glass so you have great views... More

The rides here are awesome because they usually have you flying over cliffs and 2000 foot drop offs. Alpine slide is great and the one cave we went into was pretty cool too. Be prepared for a lot of hiking to get to the rides. The burgers looked very good too.

We purchased the tram round trip and 2 caves - due to the weather we could not ride the tram down - had to wait 40 minutes for a 20 minute bus ride down - we wanted to see both caves but stayed in line 30 minutes twice only to be told they only took in 20 at a time... More

One of the best views of the valley I've ever seen. Lots of fun stuff to do at the top. We had a group of seniors and everyone found something to do. Amazing, be sure not to miss this!

This place is great. The Alpine slide is my favorite ride. The cave beats Cave of the Winds in Colorado Springs hands down!! Even the restaurant is perfect!!

Today I visited the Glenwood Caverns. We went in both caves and our guides, Nick and Kay, were FANTASTIC! They were knowledgeable and entertaining. However, we ran into an issue when we were ready to leave. Due to weather,the tram was closed. When asked about busses to get down the mountain, the young girl responded with "we're not sure "....

This place doesn't have a lot of huge rides, but the thrills that the rides offer are exaggerated by the views surrounding them. When I rode the basic swing going in circles, I had no idea it was going to fly me directly over a cliff. It took my breath away (and my husband's hat)! We greatly enjoyed the alpine... More

We visited this attraction just for a tour of the Caverns. Headquarters - Tram station was easy to find with a little help from MapQuest. Free parking at the station. Spectacular ride up the tram. Great views from the top. Very good food & beverage service available at the top. There are 2 caverns. Each tour takes about 45 minutes.... More
