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 🖤

Well.. it’s snowing. Colorado always surprises us every year.

With the cold temps it’s very difficult to open some of our larger attractions. We are hopeful it will start to warm up this afternoon. If you’re curious about the status of our rides, click the link in our bio!

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

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
