“Kids had a great time - fantastic views”
Reviewed 21 July 2012

my wife and I brought our 4 and 7 year old to this park and we got a day pass. Cavern tour was a bit long for them but they loved the rides. Lines were very reasonable and they got to ride as much as they wanted. Views were great. Price is better than Breckenridge although I like both. Staff was friendly. Certainly didn't feel like there were gouging like other amusement parks. Fee parking. Food options were reasonable.

“Tram ride from hell”
Reviewed 20 July 2012

We had an ok visit. Saw a storm coming so we decided we should get out. The staff around 20 years old allowed us to get on the tram,myself and my 5, 3 and 9 month baby sat on this tram for an hour and a half swinging in 30 mph winds and they didn't bother to contact us or let us know what was happening. I thought we were going to die swinging in the wind on the mountain ridge.
So not worth the ride up there

We are sorry to hear that your visit to the park did not end well, and we appreciate you taking the time to share your thoughts. Our mountain-top location puts us at the mercy of Mother Nature. We use state-of-the-art weather-tracking technology to monitor high winds and lightning, but weather in the mountains can be unpredictable. Our highest priority is the safety of our guests, and sometimes the safest course of action is to stop the tram until the storm has passed. As parents, we can appreciate how difficult the wait must have been; please know that we were doing our best to keep you safe. You will also receive a personal note with information on how to contact us directly to discuss your experience.

“A must see!”
Reviewed 19 July 2012

The Caverns are a "must do" for anyone in the area. Impressive for people of all ages, the caves themselves as well as the history surrounding them are simply fascinating. We've been twice and plan to go each time we get to Beaver Creek / Vail.

The Cavern was beautiful and our tour guide was knowledgeable, friendly and fun! We got amazing pics.

Also, we did the Coaster - super fun!

And we ate in the cafe and were surprised by the reasonable prices!
