The best view doesn't always have to come after the hardest climb. Sometimes it's just a gondola ride away. ⁠

Another Colorado Winter Activity Tip: Take a caverns tour at GlenwoodCaverns Adventure Park. The park is open Friday through Sunday during the winter and makes for a perfect family adventure without snow. 😉 Consider a ride on the Alpine Coaster or Hunted Mine Drop after your caverns tour! #PlanForVacation 💪⁠

A winter visit to the Nation's only #mountaintopthemepark is easy with our Winter glenwoodcaverns Adventure Package. Grab a hot cocoa and wander through 750,000 twinkling lights at #winteronthemountain. The views from atop Iron Mountain are worth it alone. 🏔🎄🎢⁠

This view was exceptional! We took a gondola up to Glenwood Cavern Adventure Park where we explored 2 caves. At the back of one of the caves was an opening to this amazing view! This was my #1 pick on things to do in Glenwood Springs 🖤

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

You guys should totally get flyin’ on the Glenwood Canyon Flyer at Glenwood Caverns Adventure Park in Colorado! Imagine circling right over the edge of the cliffs, and staring into the gap of the canyon…Seriously, the most exhilarating and rad experience ever! At first, the kids and I were a bit nervous and unsure, but we ended up going back over and over again…I counted up to 10 then I lost track of how many times we actually rode this amazing thing! 😆💙🤘🏼🌎 glenwoodcaverns visitglenwood

One more photo from King’s Row, the most ornate cave room in Colorado…this time illuminated in blue. We took a tour while visiting Glenwood Caverns Adventure Park and really loved it. It was a rather warm and sunny day outside and we weren’t quite prepared for the cool 52 degrees inside the cavern…But I am sure glad we were brave and went in! The awesomeness of this place made us forget any chills we might have felt! glenwoodcaverns
