“Ended up being okay...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2012

We were told by several people to go see the Caverns in Glenwood Springs. We took the tram to the top of the mountain and were quite surprised to find this to be an amusement park type place. Luckily, it was towards the end of the day and not crowded--had it been, I think we would have left and considered our $40+ a loss. But, grudgingly, we stayed until our tour time and actually ended up enjoying the caverns. They aren't too big, but they are quite unique and beautiful. This is a great area for families and amusment park buffs--it is not natural, wild Colorado scenery.

“Good fun”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2012

I am not very good with heights but enjoyed the cable car ride up to the park and the great views.
We went on the cave tour which was very interesting and the tour guide was excellent.
For anyone more adventurous the rides looked like they would be a lot of fun.
The visit was well worth the money.

“Amazing, stunning, must see!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2012

2nd time in the caves and different tour guide so we learned more and different information and saw new things we missed on the first tour. Also you get an amazing view of the crazy swing ride from the Adventure Park!
