Beginning October 2018, Glenwood Caverns is replacing the tramway that carries guests from the floor of the Roaring Fork Valley to the top of Iron Mountain making it a 4300-foot-long ride. The new tram will include 44 detachable, six-passenger cabins that increase capacity to 1,000 people per hour. The current tram, with 18 cabins, transports 300 an hour.
Visitors of all ages will enjoy the 5-minute scenic ride inside six-person, fully-enclosed gondolas with large clear windows. The gondolas will be wheelchair-accessible, including motorized wheelchairs.
After visitors unload the tramway gondolas, they can take a cave tour, eat at the mountain-top restaurant, Lookout Grille, try exciting thrill rides, or simply enjoy the expansive views.
