Wild West Express

Thrill Ride

Fun for the Whole Family

Ride included with Funday Ticket

May to October

When you’re looking for a fun day out with the family, Glenwood Caverns Adventure Park delivers enjoyment that everyone can share–including the new Wild West Express, our latest coaster. Join your family as you enjoy the twists and turns of a thrill ride at a slower pace, more suitable for younger riders or those who don’t love the sharper drops often found on theme park rides. At Glenwood Caverns Adventure Park, we’re dedicated to activities that kids and adults can enjoy together.

The Wild West Express is a slower-moving roller coaster that the whole family can enjoy together. You won’t have to leave half of the family sitting by the sidelines with this roller coaster! On the Wild West Express, you’ll enjoy shorter hills, lighter thrills, and a slower speed that everyone can enjoy. It’s a great first roller coaster for kids who might be reluctant to dive in on a bigger thrill ride or for older family members who are looking for a more relaxed experience but still love roller coasters.

At Glenwood Caverns Adventure Park, you’ll find plenty of activities that the whole family can enjoy. The Wild West Express is just one example of the exciting adventures we can offer. Check out the Alpine Coaster, visit the trolls, or explore the Fairy Cave or Kings Row Cave for more fun with your loved ones while you’re on at the park.

Ride Requirements

While the Wild West Express is designed to offer a lower-intensity experience appropriate for many different ages and ability levels, it’s still important to meet a few safety requirements.

Riders must be 48″ tall at minimum to ride alone or 36″ to ride with a supervising companion.

Riding with someone under four feet tall? You’ll need to be at least sixteen years of age or older to be considered for appropriate supervision.

The Wild West Express is included in the Funday Pass, so you and your family can enjoy it over and over again when you visit Glenwood Caverns Adventure Park.

If you have questions about the experience or our ride options, talk to our attendants to learn more.
