Seasonal Attractions: What’s Open & When

We have a crowd-pleasing assortment of rides at Glenwood Caverns Adventure Park. Our high elevation thrill rides are among the most heart-pounding anywhere. Along with our spectacular cave tours and fun family attractions, rides including the Alpine Coaster, Giant Canyon Swing and the Haunted Mine Drop are perennial visitor favorites. To perfectly plan your Adventure Park visit (and avoid disappointment), we’ve created this seasonal guide to understanding which rides, attractions and cave tours are open every season of the year.

"Great time, excellent rides I can't believe I forgot to do a review of this place! We visited last October and had a great time. Due to the time of year (I think) and the fact it was bitterly cold; there were not many people at the park. The rides were open on a time basis so that half would be open and then they would close and the other half open. We had no issues in getting on all the rides we wanted to though. The Alpine Rollercoaster is one of the best rides I have ever been on. MY six year old daughter was screaming in delight the whole way down. The cavern tour was very informative and enjoyable. Our guide was very amusing. Unfortunately we only had time for one of the two tours though. The food was good and reasonably priced Throughout the park the staff were very friendly and helpful. Hopefully we will have a chance to visit again when we are next in the USA."
