5 Ways to Maximize Your Winter Funday Ticket

Our Winter Funday admission is just the ticket. Plan your Colorado vacation to make the most of all Glenwood Caverns Adventure Park has to offer.

A winter day on the Alpine CoasterVisiting Glenwood Caverns Adventure Park is always a peak Glenwood Springs experience, but with a little helpful insider information, you can max out your day at the mountaintop theme park! If you want to do it all, a Funday ticket is your best bet. By bundling all the essentials, a Funday ticket is the park’s best value admission. It includes the Glenwood Gondola to the park entrance, unlimited rides on the Alpine Coaster, admission to attractions, as well as to ongoing and special events.

  1. Bright Lights Coaster

The Alpine Coaster was Glenwood Caverns’ first ride and continues to be the number-one-rated ride by park guests. It only becomes more thrilling in winter. We guarantee you’ll feel alive with all your senses firing as you fly down a snow-covered Iron Mountain. What’s the best time to ride? It depends. The Alpine Coaster is a south-facing ride so daytime hours make the most of sunny winter weather and stunning views of the Roaring Fork Valley. After dark, the ride offers added thrills with stars overhead illuminating the heavens and twinkle lights lighting up the track below.

  1. King's Row is a spectacular sight and included with your Funday ticketCave Deep Dive

You might be surprised to learn that in winter the caves at Glenwood Caverns Adventure Park can be warmer than the outside temperature. If the thermometer is hovering around the freezing mark, take a deep dive underground where the ambient temperature is a steady and comfortable 52˚F. Not only will you warm up, but the sheer beauty of the caves will knock your socks off. Both cave tours are included with your Funday ticket. The King’s Row tour showcases stunning cave formations and requires visitors to walk up and down a number of stairs. The Fairy Caves are gorgeous, with historical artifacts, a gazing pool and an overlook of Glenwood Canyon. Choose this tour if you’d rather not negotiate steps.

  1. Play Make Believe

Play a game of laser tag at the Adventure ParkWho says make-believe is just for kids? Your Funday ticket lets you play no matter your age at family-friendly winter attractions. Get in a game of laser tag with youngsters but be warned, they have a knack for racking up points and coming out on top in this action-oriented activity. When was the last time you had a laugh-yourself-silly experience at the movies? While at the park be sure to take a seat at the 4-D theater. Put on a pair of special glasses and sit tight as you experience an animated film like never before.

  1. Feel Good Fridays

In addition to all the great things to do at the Adventure Park, top-notch entertainment is also included in your Funday ticket. If you plan to visit on a Friday, stick around for FAC or Friday Afternoon Club. A great way to kick off the weekend, the event showcases a lineup of talented local musicians. To ensure you don’t go into the weekend on an empty stomach, the Lookout Grille offers an array of delicious food and drink specials.
