Creepy to Cozy: October in Glenwood Springs

October in Glenwood Springs is a season of contrasts—from Halloween haunts to hayrides.

Scary shows. "Feed me Seymour!” The acclaimed comedy theater Glenwood Vaudeville Revue, is up to some new tricks and treats this month with its presentation of the Broadway hit The Little Shop of Horrors. Shows are every Friday, Saturday and Sunday through Oct. 29 (no show Oct. 15). Doors open at 6:30 for dinner and drinks. Tickets are on sale now.

Eat your heart out. On Oct. 31, Halloween, the spookiest night of the year, enter the Phantom’s Lair at the Riviera Supper Club. Join past Phantom of the Opera cast member, Tim Martin Gleason and guest artist Alexandra Trosper for an unforgettable evening as they regale diners with songs from one of the most celebrated musicals of all time. A seven course meal will be served, complete with perfectly paired wine selections. The event is sure to be a sell-out. Tickets and more information are available through the Riviera Supper Club.

Lively ghosts. Gunslinger and card shark Doc Holliday died in Glenwood Springs, but he and his cemetery cohorts make a ghostly appearance for three weekends, Oct 13 & 14, 20 & 21 and 27 & 28, during the Frontier Historical Society’s annual Ghost Walk. Tickets are on sale now.

Amusing festivals. Ahh…fresh air and blood-curdling screams. Nothing says fall like a tractor-driven hayride followed by a 110-foot drop into a pit of darkness. That’s Glenwood Caverns Adventure Park’s Fall Festival, going on through Oct. 29. Partake in family friendly, fall-themed games and activities, then brace yourself for scream-worthy thrill rides, including the new Haunted Mine Drop. 

Heavenly heat. Get lost in the clouds—the clouds of steam that coalesce above Glenwood’s geothermal waters—at Glenwood Hot Springs Pool and Iron Mountain Hot Springs. Or, follow a dimly lit underground passageway at the Yampah Spa and Vapor Caves into the “Healthful Hades,” as it was once called, for an all-natural steam bath.
