Glenwood Caverns Colorado Adventure Park features several scream-worthy thrill rides, along with a variety of kid-friendly attractions and activities perfect for the entire family.

Major bucket list item: Caverns Tour

No visit to this Glenwood Springs Colorado adventure park would be complete without a tour of the Glenwood Caverns. Explore the underground landscape millions of years in the making. Learn about the living cavern that’s home to thousands of formations, including stalactites, stalagmites, soda straws, cave bacon, and flowstone. Experience the amazing King’s Row, the most highly decorated cave room in Colorado. There are two 40-minute walking tours appropriate for most ages that depart throughout the day. No reservations are necessary for the walking tours.

Longer Wild Tours are available with advance reservations. Parking is available at Iron Mountain Tramway Station.

Glenwood Caverns Rides

Most rides and attractions are seasonal and may be closed at any time due to weather or maintenance. Please check directly with Iron Mountain Tram personnel at the base before purchasing tickets.

Iron Mountain Tramway

Panoramic views of Glenwood Springs, Mt. Sopris and the Roaring Fork Valley are the highlight as passengers ride 4,300 feet up the side of Iron Mountain in fully enclosed gondola cabins.

The world’s first drop ride to go underground. Hold on tight! You’ll hear ghostly mining tales and, when you least expect it, you’ll drop 110’ down inside Iron Mountain. Voted USA Today’s “Best New Amusement Park Attraction of 2017.”

Wild West Express

A train-themed, family-friendly roller coaster, and the Mine Wheel Ferris wheel are perfect for the wee ones. Kids love the Old West shootout in the state-of-the-art laser tag arena. The 4D Motion Theater is fun for all ages, combining thrill-ride action with digital animation to make viewers feel like they’re actually inside the movie! There’s also a climbing wall, a giant maze, a gemstone sluice box and more.
