At the top of your Colorado Bucket list should be the only mountain-top theme park in America: Glenwood Caverns Adventure Park! Perfect for adrenaline junkies, fairy lovers, cave explorers. and anyone who loves a good view.

When you arrive take the 5 minute gondola ride to the top of Iron Mountain enjoying the spectacular view of the Rocky Mountain scenery along the way. As you reach the top you’ll see the entry to Glenwood Caverns and Historic Family Caves.

Spend the day at Glenwood Caverns Adventure Park with their all day FunDay Pass. Enjoy everything the park has to offer. Tour both the Historic Fairy Caves and King’s Row Caves. If caves and adventure are your thing you should also take the 2-hour guided Wild Tour. See Glenwood Caverns much like spelunkers did when they explored the caverns for the first time—squeezing through tight spots and emerging into hidden rooms all by the narrow beam of a headlamp. The Wild Tour takes you deep into Iron Mountain to rarely visited areas and chambers for an exhilarating, on-your-belly and crawling experience you’ll never forget.
