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: #1 Giant Canyon Swing (S&S Screamin’ Swing) This was easily my most anticipated flat ride of the trip cross country and it did not disappoint. There’s nothing like flying 1,300 above the Colorado river, just staring down. In contrast to rides like X-Scream and Insane at the Starosphere, which rely 100% on their setting, Giant Canyon Swing offers some good butterflies and positive gs. Even located in a regular park, Screamin’ Swings are fun. Put one on the edge of a cliff and you have a truly special experience. #swing #glenwoodcavernsadventurepark #glenwoodcaverns #cliff

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

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

In the heart of Glenwood Springs, ride the gondola up the mountain where you can take in the views and experience America’s only mountain top theme park. This Adventure Park has pretty thrilling rides like the country’s highest-elevation rollercoaster🎢 or a giant swing off the top of a mountain or you can go explore caves inside the mountain. We took the kids into the cave tours, which were so interesting and informative! The kids learned about rock formations, stalagmites, stalactites, and bioluminescence. Check out the caves in our stories! Which mountain adventure ⛰ would you choose – heights with the coasters or depths with the caves? •
