Thrill Rides

The sky’s the limit!

At America’s only mountain-top theme park, you’ll experience rides that quite literally take thrills to new heights. Glenwood Caverns is situated at an elevation of 7,160 feet above sea level! Not only will our thrill rides have you clinging to the edge of your seat and screaming with delight, but with the exception of the Haunted Mine Drop—the world’s first underground drop ride—every ride at Glenwood Caverns Adventure Park also showcases stunning panoramic Colorado views.

Occasionally rides are closed due to maintenance or weather. Check our rides and attractions status to see that your favorite rides are open. Also, for the best value, we recommend purchasing the Funday pass online which includes tram rides, cave tours and unlimited turns on all the rides and attractions!

Thrill Rides & Loose Items

  • Loose, unsecured items such as cameras, cellphones, hats, purses, and scarves are not allowed on all thrill rides.
  • We recommend you store these items securely in your pockets or secure them in lockers located throughout the park.
  • If you get to the front of the line upon entry to the ride, we have a few baskets where you can leave these items, but the baskets are not always secure.
  • We are not responsible for lost items.

A 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.

  • Some rides and attractions are seasonal.
  • Rides may be closed at any time due to weather or maintenance. Please check at Tram Base before purchasing tickets.
  • Guests with molded casts or a brace will be restricted from riding certain rides where the cast or brace may present a hazard to the Guest or others or prevent the rider from maintaining proper riding position throughout the ride. Please see our FAQ page for exact ride details.

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.
