Glenwood Caverns Adventure Park is celebrating fall with a family-friendly Octoberfest Sept. 30 through Oct. 29, 2017. Daily fun at the mountain-top theme park includes a pumpkin patch, fall photo opportunities, along with food and drink specials every day. There’s even more fun on Saturdays from noon to 5 p.m. with hayrides, games and prizes for kids, face painting and pumpkin decorating. Pumpkins for sale for just $3 each! We’ll even have a scavenger hunt with a drawing for one child’s Annual Thrill Pass.
The newly opened Haunted Mine Drop is an added attraction this year, with ghostly thrills perfectly suited for the season. On Oct. 14 and Oct. 21, the local band Alpine Echo takes the stage in the plaza from noon to 4pm. The band features Bill Rill on drums and vocals; John Pataky on accordion, drums and vocals; Joe Pologar on horns and vocals; and Gerhard Rill on strings, keyboards, accordion, horns, drums, bells, and vocals.
The Lookout Grille will serve fall favorites all month, including bratwursts and sauerkraut, seasonal beers, spiked apple cider and fun, fall drinks for kids. The popular Bloody Mary Bar will be open and stocked with dozens of garnishes so that guests can come up with their own creative concoctions. The General Store will add pumpkin to its selection of homemade fudge including pumpkin flavors.
