“fun place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 26, 2012

Marvellous drive to get there,really interesting rocks and really funny little animals running around looking and begging for food. There is a lift 100 feet inside the mountain that goes about 184 feet up to the top of the rock which must be one of the longest rides without a break, great to do with a lovely little shop and view at the top.

“Best close up view of the Colorado Mountains”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2012

Going up the falls is the hard part, but it is worth it. Once you get to the top, there are trails and the longest one (about an hour) was the best one. You get to sit at the top and look at the mountains across from it close up and it overlooks almost all of Colorado. It is amazing.

“Beautiful waterfall scenery”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 23, 2012

The Seven Falls are located in a canyon, not very far from Colorado Springs. As mentioned in other reviews, be prepared for stairs and if you are afraid of heights this may not be the ideal attraction. However, once you get closer to the top of the ravine the scenery is beautiful, not only the falls as such but also the surrounding area with many birds. If stairs are a problem there is a viewing platform that can be accessed via an elevator. On the top of the falls there are nice trails for an extended hike.

“They Charge for This?”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 17, 2012

Seven Falls is okay, but it's nothing you can't see off the side of I-70 to be honest. Sure, you can walk up the stairs and get closer to the water or take the elevator up to the observation deck, but I'm not sure that's worth $10. It's not Niagara Falls. If you want to see water falls up close, take the road from I-70 through Berthoud Pass or go up to Rocky Mountain National Park. The first option is free, the second option is worth so much more than the cost of a park sticker.

“Unique in its own right”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 14, 2012 via mobile

after a long journey we reached the canyon. " the most beautiful canyon in the world" sign is fairly humorous but it is a beautiful deep and narrow box canyon. For the untrained viewer the falls are probably spectacular in the right seasons and the sequential steep pools are something to see. The park has been transformed for tourists 180 steep stairs will take you to a viewing platform. There are two viewing areas, platforms my husband and I only summited one, Wear the right shoes! Strange Lutheran influence takes away from natural glory of the falls. The park was founded early in Colorado history and that makes it kind of whimsical. Not my first recommendation but hard to say its not a nice park ;)
