Gravity Roller Coaster – Need we say more… Glenwood Springs Adventure Park is a unique family attraction located at the top of Iron Mountain in historic Glenwood Springs. To reach the Adventure Park, simply step aboard the Iron Mountain Tram, located adjacent to the The Hotel Glenwood Springs. Upon reaching the tram summit you’ll have a variety of attractions and thrill rides to choose from including Tours of the Historic Fairly Caves.
Think of everything you love about roller coasters–the exhilarating speed; racing around tight turns; flying over bumps and waves.
Now imagine that you are in full control of your speed, you are riding alone or with a friend in your own individual car, and you are cruising down an alpine slope surrounded by Colorado’s gorgeous scenery. Welcome to the Canyon Flyer, the first alpine coaster in the United States!
The Canyon Flyer will race you down 3,400 feet until you gradually come to a gentle stop. While you are pulled back up the 1,000 feet to the starting point, you can relax, enjoy the surrounding wildflowers, and think about your next rip-roaring trip down the mountain! Unlike typical alpine slides, the Flyer can make hair-pin turns and can operate year round due to its track system.
Ready for a screaming thrill ride soaring above Glenwood Springs? Launch yourself out into Glenwood Canyon, 1,300 feet above the Colorado River, on the Swing Shot! If you’re brave enough to open your eyes, your views of the Canyon and Glenwood Springs are breathtaking as you soar through the air at speeds up to 50 miles per hour. The Swing Shot’s safety harness can accommodate up to four riders at a time, so you can share the adrenaline rush with friends.
Coming this summer! Jump, twist, and soar through the air on our bungee trampoline! Once you’re strapped snugly into the safety harness, start to jump as you would on any trampoline. The bungee cords allow you to jump higher and higher, adding somersaults and back flips, then returning back to the trampoline with each bounce.
