Are you looking for a dash of adventure in Glenwood Springs, Colorado, this summer? Nothing tops Glenwood Caverns Adventure Park, America’s only mountain-top theme park. The park is open year-round, but our favorite time to go is in the summer. The park has everything for thrill seekers and families: fun rides, great food, special events, cave tours, and breathtaking views.
Glenwood Caverns Adventure Park is most famous for its six daring thrill rides, including the Haunted Mine Drop, the Alpine Coaster, the Giant Canyon Swing, the Soaring Eagle Zip Ride, the Cliffhanger Roller Coaster, and the Glenwood Canyon Flyer. The Haunted Mine Drop is the park’s newest ride while the Glenwood Canyon Flyer provides incredible views of the Colorado River from high up above. True thrill seekers should take a ride on the Cliffhanger Roller Coaster, which is the continent’s highest elevation, full-sized roller coaster; like its name implies, it truly does hang right over the edge of a cliff, affording even more stunning views of the river below.
If you get hungry during your visit, grab a bite at The Lookout Grille, which, in addition to having fantastic food, is a great lookout point (go figure) for the world below.
