Add even more mountaintop adventure to your family ski trip with a scheduled play day at Glenwood Caverns Adventure Park in Glenwood Springs, Colorado
It’s March and that means spring skiing in Colorado has arrived! People around the country are packing their mens ski helmet , ski boots, and goggles ready to hit the slopes. A month when visitors will be pouring in for a final opportunity to schuss the state’s fabled slopes before they close. Located in Glenwood Springs, Colorado, near seven ski resorts, Glenwood Caverns Adventure Park is an ideal destination for a one-day, one-off spring break adventure. It’s America’s only mountaintop theme park.
Whether you’re skiing at Aspen, Aspen Highlands, Buttermilk, Snowmass, Sunlight Mountain Resort, Beaver Creek or Vail, Glenwood Caverns Adventure Park is within an hour’s drive of all of them. As exhilarating as a week of skiing can be, midway through you may be ready for a break from the lift lines and crowds.
Since you’re already in the vicinity, why not add another Colorado peak experience to your itinerary – a day at the Park – Glenwood Caverns Adventure Park. Named by Elevation Outdoors as Colorado’s Best Kid-Friendly Outdoor Destination of 2016, the Adventure Park is just the ticket for families and any non-skiers in the group.
Over spring break, many of the Adventure Park’s rides will be open including the Alpine Coaster, the Soaring Eagle Zip ride, and — weather permitting — the Giant Canyon Swing that launches riders out over scenic Glenwood Canyon. With a 4D motion theater, a Western-themed laser tag arena, scenic gondola rides from the valley floor to the top of the mountain and awe-inspiring cave tours; it all adds up to an epic day of thrilling fun and adventure for the entire family.
Compared to a day on the slopes, where a single lift ticket can run close to a couple hundred dollars, the Adventure Park is also a money-saver for families. At just $40 per adult and $35 for kids 3 – 12, a family of four can spend a day spring at the park — and enjoy lunch — for less than $200. Lunch options at the Lookout Grille include daily specials, burgers and hot sandwiches, vegetarian options, appetizers, kids’ meals and more. The Adventure Park is open daily. Hours are Monday – Friday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Saturday and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.
