The swing! I almost lost it! But fun, friendly, family-oriented place. I would recommend to visitors and locals alike!

The Alpine Coaster is amazing and the swing over the canyon will terrify even the most fearless among us! 4-D movies are lots of fun and laser tag kept our little ones entertained all day. The cave tour was fabulous and very educational but required waits of almost an hour. The only reason this wasn't a five star rating is... More

We went yesterday on a sunny Saturday afternoon. We didn't do the caverns tour. Just took gondola up and down. Truly amazing! Saw Glenwood Hot Springs pool during the ride. Also saw two rivers come together. When we got to the top, we took a walk and admired the view of Glenwood Springs. They have a restaurant, which we didn't... More

Kids from ages 2-15 were with us & everyone had fun! We spent the entire time they were open on Sunday exploring & having a great time at the Adventure park. The roller coaster on the side of the mountain was a favorite. The swing is great to watch but a little intimidating for me- being afraid of heights I... More

Adventure park was tons of fun - little expensive, look around the hotels and the local restaurants for coupons in maps, books, and advertisements. Take a camera for sure the views from the top can be spectacular. The gondola ride up is beautiful, friends rode the Swing over the valley – I was too chicken but they had a blast... More

Your visit to Glenwood Caverns Adventure Park begins with a tram ride 1500 feet up Iron Mountain. Once at the top, the park is loaded with fun rides for every member of the family (there are some height restrictions on some rides). In addition to the rides there are two caverns open for guided tours. They are AMAZING! Our tour... More

Adding the Adventure park to our agenda was an easy decision. At first it felt a bit weird since we were the only couple without kids, but hey - we had fun regardless :-) The big swing over the canyon is definitely an adrenaline rush. The roller-coaster is quite fun too. We also visited both of their caves: Fairy and... More

Some of the workers there were a bit rude and abrupt with the little ones and some areas were a bit run down

We had visited before for the cave tours, but this is the first time that we purchased the Funday Pass and rode some of the attractions. Some of the rides are focused more on the young crowd, but a couple, including the Canyon Swing, are terrifying enough for almost any thrill seeker. Beautiful views, pleasant and friendly staff, good food... More

Glenwood Caverns Adventure Park is truely a wonderful adventure. The rides take you down the mountain(the slide), zips you up like an eagle to a very high point before returning you safely, and swings you over the side of a mountain(almost impossible to keep your eyes open 100% of the time. The roller coaster on top of a 7100 foot... More
