“Kings Row was incredible!”
Reviewed 9 December 2013

We did both tours. Fairy Caves was very interesting and we were glad we did both, but Kings Row was incredible! Some day we would like to do the crawling tour.

“Park on the mountain.”
Reviewed 25 November 2013

The caves are spectacular and easy for all to do. The guides are very knowledgeable and helpful. The Park has lots of things to do, especially for young people and families. The food service is the only downside but it is a great place to have a cocktail and watch the sun go down on Sopris and Glenwood. You could easily spend several hours there.

“Fun day for kids”
Reviewed 18 November 2013

We just had our second visit to the Canverns and it was an enjoyable experience. I would have loved a more informative and educational tour of the caves; the tour guide focused primarily on how cool the "Wild" tour is, the history of the cave and pet names for random formations. The adventure park was basically deserted and lines were non existent. We had a good time playing laser tag with new friends, watching 4D movies and doing the Alpine Coaster. Make sure to bring gloves and hats for the Alpine Coaster in the cooler months!
Customer service is highly variable at the Caverns- James, the supervisor, was amazing with his knowledge, enthusiasm and competence; a few of the other employees were lacking in those qualities.

Dear boomtime,

We're glad you and your kids enjoyed your day at the park! We agree with you; bringing hats and gloves during the winter months is always a good idea (especially when you're flying down the mountain at full speed!). We are sorry to hear the cave tour fell short of your expectations and that you found the customer service variable; our mission is to make people smile, and we are glad James was at least able to do that!

We really appreciate you taking the time to write this review, and we hope you can visit again soon. Thank you!

“Okay for off season”
Reviewed 14 November 2013

Although a lot of the rides were closed it was still a fun time. We rode the alpine coaster 4 times, 1 game of laser tag, 4D movies, and the cavern tour. It was very empty and no lines so that was a plus.

“Warning: It's a Ghost Town this time of year”
Reviewed 12 November 2013

Unbelievably, there is no warning at the base where you purchase your full-price tickets. No clue given that 9 out of 10 rides are shut down, despite how warm and sunny the day is. Very disappointing. The only thrill ride open was the Weigand carts which are very fun.

One bright spot: they have an outstanding cave tour guide. Wish I could recall his name. He's a tall, slender African American, maybe in his mid to late twenties. He's a riot. Very well informed and an extremely talented performer. Brought the cave to life.

Dear Douglas,
We're glad to hear that you enjoyed your cave tour with Mark. He certainly does bring the cave to life!

During the winter, the tram, alpine coaster, 4D theater, laser tag arena, cave tours and Lookout Grille are open. We let guests know which attractions are open with the signage located next to the ticket window. We're sorry if this was confusing. You can also check to find out what's open on our website at Glenwoodcaverns.com, on our Facebook page or by giving us a call at 800-530-1635.

Thank you for your visit and for taking the time to share your review. Your feedback is important to us and we'll share it with the management team so that we can continue to improve our customer service.
