Have been visiting here ever since I was a little kid. No matter what, I always have a good time! Great for all ages, and something that definitely needs to be seen. The caves are an experience you don't want to miss.

– Nikki Ferry

Reasonably priced with tons to do for families! Laser tag, 4D movies, caves tours, roller coasters, and other one-of-a-kind amusement park rides. Plus, outstanding food with an amazing view of Glenwood Springs! We had three kids with us and spend almost 8 hours there!

– MandM Kruk

Such an amazing gem in the mountains! A quaint little amusement park featuring fun rides, short lines, friendly staff, and the cafe makes a tasty lunch for a reasonable cost. The cavern tours are very well done. Overall, it is an adventurous way to spend the day in GWS!

The Top 5 Rides at Glenwood Caverns: #4 Haunted Mine Drop (Soaring Eagle Drop Tower)- The world’s only underground drop tower is a highly themed drops riders 120 feet into a mine shaft. Throughout the queue line riders are told the story of a corrupt corporation that is sneakily sending workers to their doom in the haunted mine. The drop gives a good pop of air on the way down. At the bottom of the drop you can feel that you’re actually underground with cool, moist air. #droptower #glenwoodcaverns #glenwoodsprings
