Q. How should I dress for the walking cave tour?
A. If you’re going on a cave tour you will want comfortable walking shoes. The cave is 52 degrees year-round.
Q. Can I take pictures and video in the cave?
A. Yes, you can. However, in order to protect the caves, no tripods are allowed.
Souvenir Photos are taken of you when you ride on the Alpine Coaster, the Cliffhanger Roller Coaster, and when you go on the King’s Row Cave Tour.
Q. Can my infant go on the cave tour?
A. Yes, we even offer front packs up top that you can borrow to carry them. Back carriers are not allowed. If you are worried the infant will disrupt the tour, stay toward the back.
Q. Can I take my food, water, and backpack in the cave?
A. No, these items are not allowed. There are places in the cave where a backpack will scrape against the cave and damage formations. These restrictions are for the protection of the cave. Storage lockers are available near the start of the cave tour where you can store your items for a quarter.
Q. If I only have time for one cave tour, which cave tour should I do?
A. Of course both 40 minute guided tours are special in their own way but here is some information that may help you decide. The Historic Fairy Cave leads you through a 1/4 of a mile underground stroll with occasional narrow passage ways and a brief visit outside on Exclamation Point with panoramic views of Glenwood Springs. King’s Row takes you into the wide-open Barn with 150 stairs down into the most highly decorated cave room in Colorado featuring stunning formations! Just remember, you’ll have to hike your way back up the stairs.
