The tram was really bun to ride up. We walked around and saw great views in many directions. We were lazy so we did not take in all that the place had to offer, and there is much there. But the ride up and views alone were worth the trip.

What a great place. We brought kids ranging in age from 5-10 and everyone had a blast. They have plenty of rides for all ages...two roller coasters and the swing were so fun! We did the cave walk too which was really cool. Check the Internet for coupons and they will apply it to the full day pass. We highly recommend it!!!!

Take a tram to the top of the mountain, and there you will find several unique rides and a cave to tour. The giant canyon swing is a thrill not for the faint at heart! The alpine slide is also fun. While the cave tours are guided by geologists and are actually quite interesting. The views are awesome from every corner of the park.

The views from this park are amazing!

We took our five kids to the Glenwood Caverns Adventure Park and had a fantastically fun day. The Alpine Slide was great. The zipline was fun. The Canyon Swing might be the best ride I have ever been on. My kids are 10, 8, 5, 3, 1 and they all had fun. Laser tag was fun. The little ones loved the ferris wheel and the 4-d movies. The staff was very friendly.

The upper cave tour, "The Fairy Caves," is kind of lame but the lower cave is spectacular.

We were there from opening to close. There are picnic tables and small lockers ($3 as of June 2013). We simply put our food in a small cooler that wouldn't fit in the locker and put it on top. Nobody touched it.

Note: If your child is under 48 inches tall, don't pay. Little ones can't really ride much.

I was pleasantly surprised to see that that there wasn't a massive crowd like I expected. We arrived around 3 pm, each ride had about a 20 minute wait, much less late in the day around 7 when we left. We got to do each ride multiple times and enjoyed them all. The new coaster is quite a hike to get there, but worth it. I'm glad to see they are including the cavern tours in the day pass now. We skipped that last time we were there, but it was very interesting and a really nice break from the heat too.

Dear retro21,

We're happy to hear you enjoyed so many different aspects of the Adventure Park! The cave tours are always a nice break from the summer heat, since they stay at 52 degrees year-round. Thanks so much for this great review. We hope you can visit again soon!
