The Mine Wheel

As you head to Glenwood Caverns Adventure Park for a day of family fun and excitement, the Mine Wheel is one of the top attractions that often comes to mind. If you love viewing the park from up high, the Mine Wheel is one of the best options for enhancing your fun. Even better, it’s part of the Fun Day Pass, which means you can enjoy it multiple times throughout the day. 

About the Mine Wheel

The Mine Wheel is a Ferris wheel-style ride that takes guests around in secure “mine carts,” allowing them to get a look at the park from up high. The Mine Wheel spins around several times, giving each guest plenty of time to take in all the views and see everything the park has to offer. Up at the top, you can get a clear view of gorgeous Iron Mountain as you breathe in the mountain air.

You must be at least 51″ high to ride the Mine Wheel alone. Our guests under 51″ can, however, ride with a supervising companion of at least four years of age. 

What Else is Include in the Fun Day Pass?

Are you thinking about checking out everything Glenwood Caverns Adventure Park has to offer? The Fun Day Pass could be the best option for all your needs. Start with a gondola ride to the mountain top: the only way to reach the top of the mountain. While you’re there, visit with the trolls and take in seasonal music and events. The Fun Day Pass also includes: 

  • The Alpine Coaster, a fun little coaster with a minimum height of 38.”
  • The 4D motion theater, which includes moving seats, surround sound, and fantastic special effects as you take in the thrills of the show
  • Laser tag, Wild West style, which is a fun and exciting experience for the whole family

Choosing the right attractions is an important part of making sure that your day at Glenwood Caverns Adventure Park shines bright. Carefully evaluate your options as you choose the right pass for your family.

Important Information You Need to Know

If you’re thinking about paying a visit to Glenwood Caverns Adventure Park, there are several key things you need to take into account. First, note that the Glenwood Gondola is your transportation into the park, complete with incredible scenic views. However, the weather in the area can change abruptly, including afternoon thunderstorms that can bring on considerable wind and lightning. 

In case of those high winds, the gondola may need to slow down or stop running for a period of time in order to keep our guests as safe as possible. 

Children under age 3 do not have to pay admission to Glenwood Caverns Adventure Park and can ride any rides that they meet the requirements for. 

There’s something for the whole family at the park, so you’re sure to find something everyone will enjoy–including your little ones!

You may be asked to sign a waiver when you reach the Glenwood Gondola. Plan this time into your schedule so that you can enjoy the rest of your day!
