Thrill Rides at Glenwood Caverns



ALPINE COASTER
open  


8-29-14: USA Today named the Alpine Coaster at Glenwood Caverns Adventure Park one of the
"10 Best Roller-Coaster Rides of Your Life."!

Think of everything you love about roller coasters-- the exhilarating speed;
racing around tight turns; flying over bumps and waves.

Now imagine that you are in full control of your speed, you are riding alone or with a friend in your own individual car, and you are cruising down an alpine slope surrounded by Colorado’s gorgeous scenery.
Welcome to the the first alpine coaster
in the United States!

Unlike typical alpine slides, you can't fall out of the Alpine Coaster. The Coaster is affixed to its track, can make hair-pin turns, and it can operate year-round due to its track system.

The Alpine Coaster will race you down 3,400 feet until you gradually come to a gentle stop. While you are pulled back up the 1,000 feet to the starting point, you can relax, enjoy the surrounding wildflowers, and think about your next rip-roaring trip down the mountain!
