There’s a great way to explore two of Glenwood Springs’ most popular destinations – Glenwood Caverns Adventure Park and the new +Iron Mountain Hot Springs. The Ride & Relax Combo Package allows you to save on admission to both! It includes one visit to each during a 7-day period. That means you can do it all in one day or spread it out during your visit to the Most Fun Town in America. #hotsprings #GlenwoodSprings #deal #thrillrides

Thanks to #travel writer +Irene Thomas for this great story about visiting the Roaring Fork Valley. #GlenwoodSprings #Colorado #hotsprings  
Down-valley towns offer plush accommodations and top restaurants, while towns like Basalt and Carbondale have off-slope activities.

As much as we like to make people smile, we also like to make them scream. These two gentlemen can attest to that fact! The Giant Canyon Swing here at Glenwood Caverns Adventure Park has been called "the scariest ride in the world" by many a rider. You can now take home memories of your ride, if you're brave enough to try it. We're located on top of Iron Mountain in scenic Glenwood Springs, Colorado.

Overall a fun place to spend with family. Lots to do and friendly staff. Caves & Alpine coaster are awesome. However, our visit didn't start off good at all. Going up the mountain in the gondolas they seemed to get stuck. I know this stuff happens which is why I usually don't complain much. But, my family and I along with other families were up there for about 50 min. in 80-85 degree weather. They never tried to tell us what was going on & when we tried calling different managers not one answered. Like I said, I usually don't complain, but to have people hanging that high off the ground in that type of heat is unacceptable especially if the people in charge can't even pick up their phones. It is very pricey as well and there seems to be long lines for everything, not sure if we'll be back anytime soon.

We had an amazing time for sure at the park as the caverns are just gorgeous, plus we had an AMAZING tour guide. I initially caught her name, but it escapes me right now. She had blonde hair, sang some Led Zeplin, had a batman signal for her flashlight, pointed out a bunch of awesome fairies, and was crazy knowledgeable. Definitely going back for a longer tour with her!!! The only thing I have to complain about is the amount of money we paid to be there for the day and how we only utilized 2/3s of what we paid for. The tram was sporadically down due to the wind, which is beyond the control of the people operating it- however, that meant we did not get to ride it going up nor down so we had to take a bus both times. What would have been honest and fair was the park being upfront when we bought our tickets about the wind advisory atop the mountain and how that would affect our experience and then provide us with another option for the day. In total we spent $150 on all day passes for 3 people and technically lost out on $50 divided between the three of us for not being able to ride the tram at all. They should really create a package that is a bit cheaper if people decide to do an all day pass but they want to ride the bus only or the weather forces them to. OR tell people if that is even an option b/c we were told that the tram is the ONLY way to get into the park when we bought our passes. BUT, that is just a friendly suggestion. Overall, we had a blast on top of the mountain.

There's 2 ways to enjoy this amusement park. Either you can buy tickets, and just hit a few of the rides, or you can get a day pass with full access to everything. I recommend getting the full day pass. When I went the park was a little slow, so I was able to ride most of the rides as many times as I wanted in a row. The cave tours are nice, and make sure you remember to tip your guides. You can usually get a package deal for the Adventure Park that includes admission to the Iron Mountain Hot Springs, since they're both owned by the same people.

We bought our tickets to the Adventure Park at 2:30 for 4pm. By the time 4pm came around, there was a flash flood and lightning storm rolling in and they shut down the tram up the hill. They offered us a bus ride as a replacement and an hour after our scheduled time, we finally started our cave tour. The tour was ok - kinda weird seeing all of the man-installed lighting and stuff - it didn't feel very adventurous, but rather more like a museum where you're looking at relatively interesting things. I have no beef with the tour - in fact, I'd recommend it for anyone with children who like stories and pseudo-geological information. Once the cave tour finished, we were ready to go home. 3 hours later, we made it back down the mountain. Our 4-5:30 afternoon turned into 4-8:30. It was an incredibly terrible experience being stuck up on a mountain with no way back down on the only day we had in Glenwood Springs and I wouldn't wish it on anyone. That said, I feel like under normal circumstances, it would have been a pretty cool experience. That's the only reason they have 3 stars instead of 1. They can't control the weather - but it does suck that the weather can affect the experience that much.

My family and I went to the glennwood cavern adventure park today for one reason, and one reason only: to ride the big swing. We paid the $15 EACH to ride the mandatory gondola up to the park. It was a sketchy ride up, we all were a bit scared as the car swung back and forth and we went up the mountain. Once we got up to the top, we bought our tickets for the ride: $12 each. My father and I got seated on the ride and the locking mechanism on the seats continued to malfunction. The ride operator had no idea what he was doing and was not helpful when we vocalized that we were now scared to ride this dangerous ride. He could not make the seat lock so he called the maintenance guy. As soon as the maintenance guy got there he instantly had an issue that we wanted a refund for the tickets we had bought for the ride. He gave us a very hostile attitude explaining that a 15 minute fiberoptic fix would make the ride go again. Though that didn't ease our minds about allowing this machine to propel us over the side of a mountain. We still wanted a refund that they didn't want to give us. That is when they called the "manager" John. He immediately approached my father in a belittling fashion when my dad asked for a refund. They both then walked up to ticket building. Leaving me and my mother by the ride, where we over heard the maintenance people making fun of us, one even accused us of "breaking the ride." My mom and I finally made it up the hill to the ticket building right as my dad and John were coming out. He had reluctantly granted us the refund for the ride but was refusing to give us a refund for the gondola. My dad was trying to explain the only reason we had spent the $45 to get into this place was for that ride and that ride had failed. John then called my father and "unreasonable customer" that's when I chimed in with and angry "are you f*ing serious?!" He then said because I used profane language that he didn't need to help us anymore. The only way down the mountain was by gondola, so down we went. Once at the bottom of the mountain we asked to speak to a manager, but were pawned off on Brittany Kotie because the manager was "on break." She had already been informed about us via phone and knew us by name. She did NOTHING to be helpful when we requested information or asked her to call the manager. She just said there and said "ok, ok, ok, yeah I know..." She did take my fathers information asking for the manager to call to discuss how poorly we were treated today. (Which I'm sure she threw right into the trash) Obviously she refused us a refund. This was the worst experience I have ever had at any kind of "park." I have never seen "customer service" treat guests so poorly. Their dangerous thrill ride malfunctioned with us on it creating fear in us, enough for us to not want to ride it. That is not our fault. We should not have been punished, called names or been treated they way we were. They handled this situation very badly, if I could give less than one star I would.

Very disappointing experience. We were really looking forward to the canyon flyer and the alpine coaster. We arrived a little before 9am and saw a sign that the canyon flyer was closed for maintenance. When the ticket window opened they confirmed the flyer was closed for the day. We decided against paying $50 each for the daily pass and just pay the single ride fee for the alpine coaster and the required $15 fee for the Tramway up to the park. The lady then told us the Tramway was not working so they would take us up to the park in a bus. That was fine until she still charged us the $15 each just for the bus ride. Seriously??? They wouldn't budge so my family walked away. I cannot and will not recommend Glenwood Caverns Adventure Park.

A pleasant surprise! We were in the Aspen area and wanted to find something for the kids. We almost didn't go because of the cost for a 1 day pass (4 people) but don't regret it at all! The cave tours were outstanding. We went into both caves, very different and each very cool. Both guides were excellent. Then we went on some rides, saw "4D" movies, did laser tag and just explored the park. Many attractions were closed for the season, but we still had a great time. Kids had tons of fun. Highly recommend!

Great place on the mountain top. We couldnt see most of it due to the time we went up and due to kids. But there was great music playing that just gets your feet dancing. The alpine coaster was great and my 4 yr old had 4 rounds on it! The view was great on the viewing deck.
