Fifty feet tall, perched at an altitude of 7,160 feet and hugging the side of Iron Mountain, the Cliffhanger edges out all other coasters on the continent. A crowd-pleaser, its cliff-side curves and heart-stopping drop offs make it a must-ride attraction for coaster aficionados and thrill-seekers. From the ride’s pinnacle are views of the Colorado River in Glenwood Canyon, 1,450 feet below!
Fun fact. The Cliffhanger Roller Coaster opened at Glenwood Caverns Adventure Park on June 15, 2012. The Italian-made coaster was purchased from an amusement park in Branson, Missouri. To reassemble it required 1,400 new bolts, including 700 special bolts, 14 inches long with metric threads, used to hold the sections of track together. The same weekend the Cliffhanger debuted, the Mine Wheel, a ferris wheel ride also opened at the park.
Important note. 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 gondola rides, cave tours and unlimited turns on all the rides and attractions!
