Kiddie Rides

For Our Littlest Park Goers

Glenwood Caverns Adventure Park welcomes our youngest guests with play areas, rides and activities designed to engage and delight children.

  • Like riding a pony, the Giddy Up bounces kids up and down for lots of giggles.
  • They’ll feel the wind in their hair on the gentle, but exciting Wild West Express.
  • Slow and steady, the Mine Wheel takes kids to new heights in Ferris wheel style.
  • Go for the summit on our Climbing Wall which features routes of varying degrees of difficulty.
  • Playing in the dirt has always been fun, but never more so than when panning for gemstones in our
    giant sluice.
  • Dinosaur fossils have been found in the Roaring Fork Valley, kids can also dig them up in our Fossil Dig Sand Box.

Encourage kids to explore, create, challenge themselves and push their boundaries with Glenwood Caverns’ assortment of play experiences and activities.

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.
