“Our mission is to make people smile”

Everyone loves swings. There's something about soaring back and forth through the sky that's more than a little freeing. Glenwood Caverns Adventure Park has taken that feeling and multiplied it by a thousand. How? By creating a gigantic, pneumatic swingset that doesn't just send you even further into the sky...it does so over a cliff overlooking the Glenwood Springs Canyon. Whoa. Unlike the playground swings you're used to, the Giant Canyon Swing at Glenwood Caverns Adventure Park sits right on the edge of the canyon, 1,300 feet above the Colorado River and sends up to four riders soaring 112 degrees above the horizon at fifty miles an hour. I won't mince words...it's actually kind of terrifying. It's so scary, in fact, that the man who came up with it, Steve Beckley, has only ridden it once and says he won't be swinging again. In Glenwood Springs you can explore stunning caverns and formations... in Colorado's largest showcave. Fly down the mountain on Colorado's first alpine coaster. And you better hang on to your seat in Colorado's first 4D Ride Theater. Fly through the air high above Glenwood Springs, out over scenic Glenwood Canyon in our Giant Swing. Glenwood Caverns (formerly called the Fairy Caves) is an extensive cave system located in Glenwood Springs, Colorado. The Caverns are now part of the Glenwood Caverns Adventure Park, a popular Colorado tourist attraction. The caves are accessed by a 4,300-foot (1,300 m) cable car ride which takes visitors to the top of Iron Mountain. The park offers a 70 minute guided walking tour suitable for all ages. The caverns are well lit and there are well-maintained walkways with safety hand railings but no elevator or wheelchair access. The Cave Tour is approximately half a mile (800 m) in length and includes 127 stairs. Accompanied by a knowledgeable guide, visitors learn about the history, geology and legends of Colorado’s largest show cave open to the public.

The drive here from Denver was sunless, wet, and winding, but as soon as I laid eyes Glenwood Springs, I felt a rush of life. The area's shapely mountains, lush greenery, and converging rivers can... Read more
