This is of those places which you really don't expect. It is hidden away up in the mountains overlooking Glenwood Springs and access is only via a cable car. However, when you get to the top there is a small but perfectly formed theme park with some great caves to explore. We had a very happy time up there for... More

Small park set up on top of a mountain. You have to take a gondola up/down (room for about 6). Not that many rides but they do have cave tours so that sucks up some time and also keeps you cool if it's a hot day. The view is stunning and can be enjoyed from some of the rides, and... More

Fun, especially for kids. The caverns were quite interesting and we had a great guide on the Kings Row cave, Dave. He was very knowledgable and fascinating to listen to. I would recommend getting on his tour if you can, you won't be sorry! :) Lots of different rides are offered, gift shops, goodies and you get to take the... More

My family and I bought the day passes. I feel like the prices were way to steep for the amount of attractions offered. Not to mention the cafe charges an outrageous amount, offered no refills, and the cafe staff were downright rude. That being said, my kids had an absolute blast and that was really why we went there.

This is a fun and unique amusement park with views that can't be beat! It has the U.S.'s highest elevation roller coaster (very compact with lots of twists and turns) and a great alpine slide/roller coaster that goes down the side of the mountain. It's not huge, but it's fun. I would have been content to just sit at the... More

The gondola ride was a little stuffy on the way up but I think I was just nervous. Our family reunion ranged from 2 to 75 years of age. One ride was simply a circular swing and looked mild enough for the whole family. We didn't realize it swings out over the canyon. Holy Moly! The kids laughed and us... More

We were referred to the local paper for a free pass to ride the tram after 5:30 at the adventure park. We figured a beer at their place would fit the bill. We had a great time at their park. Lots to do and a clean and friendly place. Oh, the beer was cold and the views amazing. Not crowded... More

The tram ride up offered the opportunity to see downtown Glenwoood Springs from a great new perspective. At the top is a wide selection of rides for the kiddies, some rides for adults, and a mediocre restaurant with a respectable beer selection and talented local entertainment.

Not a lot of planning required due to frequent tours of caverns. Just the way I roll. Nice ride in the gondola. Easy, relaxing, and pretty cool. Many other things to do here with kids too.

We went to the park on Saturday morning. The park was busy and we had to wait in line for the Gondola for about 45 minutes. the wait was well worth it! Once we got to the top we bought tickets for the Alpine Coaster. We ended up going on the Alpine Coaster twice. It was one of my favorite... More
