If you’re all thumbs when it comes to internet acronyms, let us decode them for you: In Case You Missed It (ICYMI), Friday Afternoon Club (FAC) at Glenwood Caverns Adventure Park (GCAP) is The Place to Be (TPTB).
Already midway through the summer season, with five weeks left, there are still plenty of opportunities to unwind at the end of the workweek with fun, food, friends and more! Every Friday from 5 – 8:30 p.m. through August 18, Glenwood Caverns Adventure Park hosts FAC at the Lookout Grille, an indoor-outdoor venue with the hands-down best views in Glenwood Springs – including jaw-dropping sunsets over the Colorado River.
Each week features a different band, all playing danceable sets which could include anything from rock-and-roll to reggae and hip-hop. In addition to a mix of upbeat music, Glenwood Caverns’ FAC is famous for its drink specials that switch at regular intervals throughout the evening. With the spin of the wheel – similar to the Wheel of Fortune – the drink specials change every half hour. Enjoy wine, beer and cocktails at happy hour prices, from $2 – $4 per drink, with $2 Coors Light on tap all night.
The Park’s FAC also includes a free tram ride with a coupon that appears in the Post Independent printed and e-edition on Fridays. One coupon is valid for free tram or bus rides for up to four people starting at 4 p.m. Guests can also enjoy the Park’s rides and attractions during the FAC events. A Funday Pass, just $38 with the free tram ride, includes both walking cave tours and unlimited access to all of the Park’s rides and most attractions. The outdoor rides are open until dusk; the Laser Tag arena and 4D Motion Theater are open until the park closes at 9 p.m.
There are only five FACs left! Don’t miss a single one. Here’s what’s coming up:
Friday, July 21, Starcher Hutsen: Known for classic rock, Starcher Hutsen performs originals and covers from noted artists such as James Taylor, Snow Patrol, Eagles, David Gray, Beatles, Damian Rice, Kenny Wayne Shepherd, and more many more. Sponsor: Big Horn Toyota.

B4YKI, it will be over; CU at GCAP for FAC!
