Giant Canyon Swing
Ready, Set Go!
To say this pendulum thrill ride is an adrenaline rush is an understatement. It was named by USAToday as one of the most extreme rides in the United States!
According to the article, “The Giant Canyon Swing at Glenwood Caverns Adventure Park moves four passengers back and forth, takes them nearly vertical at the height of each swinging arc, hits a top speed of 50 mph, and delivers potent, tummy-tickling, negative G-forces, all perched at the edge of a cliff on top of a mountain,” That cliff is 1,300 feet above the Colorado River.
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.
