We got our first taste of winter in Glenwood Springs, Colorado, last night as snow made its way through the state. That doesn’t stop the fun at Glenwood Caverns Adventure Park, which is open year-round.
During the winter months, you can spend a day at the Adventure Park for $30 with a Funday Pass. That gives you a round-trip ride on the Iron Mountain Tramway and unlimited access to the Alpine Coaster, 4D Motion Theater and Laser Tag Arena. You can add a guided Cave Tour for just $5 more. That means a family of four can play at the park and have lunch at the scenic Lookout Grille for less than $200.
The Alpine Coaster, which is the longest one in the state, is fun all year long — even in the snow. (This picture is from last winter; we don’t have that much snow on the ground yet this year!) At the 4D Motion Theater, you can enjoy three films: “Journey to the Center of the Earth,” “Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs” and “Night at the Toy Store.” The Laser Tag Arena offers the latest in wireless laser technology in an Old West setting, and is great for groups and birthday parties.
Our winter hours take effect on October 30: Open Friday through Monday each week from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., and closed Tuesday through Thursday. The Adventure Park will offer extended hours over the holidays. During Thanksgiving, the park will be open 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily from Nov. 16 to 26, except for Thanksgiving Day. It will be also be open daily Dec. 21 to Jan. 7, except for Christmas Day. For more information about the park, visit www.GlenwoodCaverns.com or call 800-530-1635 or 970-945-4228, ext. 0.
