Glenwood Caverns is a beautiful historical area to visit and fun for the entire family. Located in Glenwood Springs, this mountain top adventure offers a guided tour of the Glenwood Cavern and Historic Fairy Cave as well thrill rides, scenic tram rides, restaurants, kids' activities, and more.

Visitors will find several different types of cave tour from which to choose ? the Walking Tour, Adventure Tour, and Wild Tour. The Walking Tour, easy for people of all fitness levels, takes you on a scenic journey through the caverns and out to Exclamations Point, a balcony on the cliffs. The Adventure Tour takes you through some more difficult parts of the cave system where in some places you will actually have to crawl. It is a fun experience, and you will get to see some interesting underground formations ? but expect to get dirty. The Wild tour is a trip through the caves that is more difficult still. This three-hour tour takes you deep into the caves, through some incredibly tight spaces less than 18 inches high. You will be able to see parts of the cave system that most people will never even know exist.

The adventure park also features various thrill rides such as the Canyon Flyer, which is an alpine coaster where you control the speed. You travel 3,400 feet down the mountainside, around corners and through the forest in a coaster car either alone or with a friend. At the end of the ride, the coaster car brings you back up the mountain where the ride began. The Swing Shot launches you at 50 miles per hour out above the Colorado River, giving you incredible views of the valley far below. The Bungee Trampoline allows you to safely jump, spin, and somersault all with the safety of a bungee harness. All these are great fun for those who want to get the adrenalin going.
