Park Profile


Since then, it has grown to include thrill rides, family-friendly attractions, live music, shopping, dining and, as of this year, the new high-speed Glenwood Gondola that can transport 1,000 people per hour up and down the mountain. “We never imagined that 20 years later we’d be


operating the only mountain-top theme park in America, with roller coasters and a giant swing and concerts under the stars,” co-owner Jeanne Beckley says. “It’s been such an incredible process. Our boys have grown up here, and the park has become this special place where families can have fun, learn about nature, experience this spectacular cave and create memories together.”


Mountain-Top Adventure To celebrate its 20th anniversary, the Adventure Park threw a Party Like It’s 1999 celebration on May 18. Paizley Park, a costumed and choreographed Prince tribute act, rocked the stage that evening. Earlier in the day CaveSim, a crawl- through electronic cave simulator with 60 feet (18 m) of passage to explore, was available. It was decorated with artful reproductions of real cave formations. Education was a primary goal of the Beckleys when they


first opened the cave in 1999. According to Steve, “We were, and still are, so overwhelmed by the beauty of this world beneath our feet that we wanted to share it with as many people as possible while still protecting the natural resource.


Teaching our guests about the history and geology of the area, the life forms within the cave and the importance of conservation has always been at the forefront of our business.” Since that first tour, more than a million people have toured


Glenwood Caverns and the Historic Fairy Caves. The park offers affordable field trips for thousands of students every year, providing the opportunity to share the science and experience of exploring to even more young people, many of whom might not have the chance to do so otherwise. Located in scenic Glenwood Springs, Colorado, midway


between Aspen and Vail, Glenwood Caverns Adventure Park offers a one-of-a-kind mountain-top adventure. The Adventure Park features a gondola ride, walking and wild tours of Glenwood Caverns and Historic Fairy Caves, dining, and year-round attractions including the new Haunted Mine Drop, Alpine Coaster, 4D Motion Theater and Laser Tag Arena. Seasonal offerings include the Giant Canyon Swing, Glenwood Canyon Flyer, Cliffhanger Roller Coaster, Wild West Express family coaster, a climbing wall, gemstone sluice box mining, a Ferris wheel ride and a holiday light display. Glenwood Caverns Adventure Park also operates the new Iron Mountain Hot Springs on the bank of the Colorado River in Glenwood Springs.


Glenwood Gondola opens There’s a new gondola in the Roaring Fork Valley to transport guests to Glenwood Caverns Adventure Park. The Glenwood Gondola from Leitner-Poma replaced the park’s former Iron Mountain Tramway. Owners Steve and Jeanne Beckley took the first ride. The park saved the original tram cabin number one, which is now located at the base for photo opportunities.
