Family Friendly Attractions

Not Too Wild. Not Too Tame.

Family Oriented. These Adventure Park rides and attractions are perfect for every member of the family. Whether you’re a tot, a teen or all grown up, you can share experiences together as a group and make memories to last a lifetime. These rides and activities are fun and engaging for all ages.

  • For amazing views, board the Mine Wheel, a Ferris wheel style ride.
  • The Wild West Express is a gentle mini roller coaster with just the right amount of ups and downs.
  • Get your game on and hit your target in the Laser Tag Arena.
  • Feel like you’re in the movie, not just watching it, at our 4D Theater.

Rides can be closed due to maintenance, weather or the winter and spring season. Check our rides and attractions status to see that your favorite rides are open. Family-friendly rides and attractions are part of the mountain-top fun at Glenwood Caverns Adventure Park.

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. One waiver per person is required. Riders younger than 18 must have a parent’s or guardian’s signature on the waiver.

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.
