“Cave of the Winds Tour”

Cave of the Winds Mountain Park
Certificate of Excellence
More attraction details
Attraction details
Recommended length of visit: More than 3 hours
Owner description: Discovered in 1881, Cave of the Winds has been a premier Colorado attraction for more than a century. Explore amazing caverns, experience total cave darkness, and marvel at the beauty of formations hundreds of thousands of years old. Then step outside and walk on the wind on the Wind Walker Challenge Course, fly like a bat on the Bat-a-Pult Zip Line, and dive into Williams Canyon on the one of a kind aerial dive ride, the TERROR-Dactyl. Lots of family fun, amazing views and memories to last a lifetime!

This cave was so unique, astonishing, and interesting. Our tour guide, Jay, was so knowledgeable and taught us so much of what we were seeing and the history of what we viewed.

I was very excited to take my son here. I was pretty dissappointed at the tour. The sights were pretty but our guide seemed like she would rather be anywhere but giving a tour. She talked fast and in a very rehearsed and uninterested way. There were a lot of funny jokes that were included in her speech that she never paused for so no one laughed. We were at the end of the group trying to keep up and she would often be talking before we all got into the room do we missed the info and what she was pointing to with her flashlight. It was a real bummer. After the amazing Glenewood Cavern experience we had last year, I would never return for this.

This was not at all what I remember from my trip here as a young girl. The cave is not very well preserved. Alot of brokenness. If you want to see a great cave & awesome tour, check out the Glenwood Caverns cave tour in Glenwood Springs. We were there in the last 6 months and their tour way outshines this over advertised place and is very well preserved. Bummer! The added adventures are fun but skip the short cave tour. My guess is the longer more expensive tour is the tour I saw as a child & it was their original tour. (much better in the late 1970's)

Tickets weren't priced too bad. Enjoyed the tour and learning about the history of the cave. Tour guide was very good. You have to walk up and down stairs quite a bit and there are some narrow and short openings to go through. Wasn't a problem for us but just a warning if you are over 6ft or of larger stature.
