Glenwood Caverns Adventure Park, located just 80 minutes west of Summit County, offers fun for the whole family: tram rides, cave tours, thrill rides, gemstone sluice box mining, a climbing wall, bungee trampoline, mechanical bull, train ride, mountain-top restaurants, souvenir shop, and more. IRON MOUNTAIN TRAM
A state-of-the-art European pulse-gondola design, one of the first ever installed in the US, takes visitors to the Glenwood Caverns Adventure Park. Visitors experience a towering panoramic view of the spectacular Rocky Mountain scenery as they skim over treetops, up to the top of Iron Mountain and the entrance to Glenwood Caverns and Historic Fairy Caves.
The 4,300-foot-long tram ride originates at Iron Mountain Station located in Glenwood Springs, Colorado. Visitors of all ages enjoy the seven-minute scenic ride inside six-person fully enclosed gondolas with large clear windows. Wheelchair accessible.
Located at the top of Iron Mountain in Glenwood Springs, Glenwood Caverns & Historic Fairy Caves offers one of the leading family cave tours in the country. There are three tours available.
The Cave Tour is a 70-minute guided walking tour appropriate for most people.
The Wild Tour is an extreme three-hour, guided, on-your-belly tour that gives you the opportunity to explore the rarely visited areas of Glenwood Caverns.
The 90-minute, guided Adventure Tour is less strenuous than the Wild Tour and allows cavers to explore new areas of the cave.
Hop on the Canyon Flyer, Colorado's only alpine coaster, with individual cars on tracks that race 3,400 feet through the trees and down the mountainside. Ride alone or in pairs. You control your speed as you travel over bumps and waves and around hairpin curves.
