Release of Liability Waiver (Exención Por Actividades) must be signed prior to enjoying all rides and attractions. To save yourself time, please download, print and bring this waiver with you.

Weather Policy

The weather in the Rocky Mountains can change quickly. In the spring and summer months it is not uncommon to experience thunderstorms which brings wind and lightning. If we experience high wind or lightning in close proximity, the gondola will slow down and sometimes stop. We may also close the gondola for a period of time until the weather passes; typically, these storms move through in 45 to 90 minutes. Please plan accordingly for these delays as there is no alternative means of transportation. We appreciate your patience and cooperation.

“We rode the swing three times in a row. We didn’t even want to get off!”

Diane & Emily - Circle Pines, Minnesota

"This place is fantastic! The rides were awesome. The mine drop was by far the scariest for me but it’s over before you know it so who wouldn’t want to go again and again. The alpine coaster is probably the best one I have been on so far. Zip line is super cool. The is a giant pendulum swing which takes you out over the cliffs edge and you see the beautiful Colorado river waaaaayyyy below…excellent! This place is a definite must do if you are ever in Glenwood Springs."

“We could ride the Cliffhanger Roller Coaster every single day!”

Casey & Emily - Palisade, Colorado

"You are literally soaring like an eagle!"
