It’s clear that a mountain is ideal for many things – hiking, skiing, hang gliding; but it’s not the most logical location for a theme park. Yet, situated 7, 100 feet above sea level in Glenwood Springs, Colorado, the Glenwood Caverns Adventure Park is America’s only mountain-top theme park. How exactly did Glenwood Caverns Adventure Park end up there?
The Fairy Caves has quite a history. A nagging curiosity to explore a little-known cave in Glenwood Springs more than two decades ago led to the re-opening of Glenwood Caverns and the Historic Fairy Caves in 1999. The popularity of the cave tours led to very long wait times, and owners Steve and Jeanne Beckley started adding attractions so that guests would have something to do while waiting for the tour. Now there are more than a dozen attractions atop Iron Mountain, and the Park has become a place where the thrills run deep and the sky’s the limit!

Iron Mountain Hot Springs.
Iron Mountain Hot Springs, Glenwood Springs’ newest wellness destination, opened in 2015 on the bank of the Colorado River. Choose from 16 soaking pools or a freshwater family pool and jetted spa. Iron Mountain has a rich history that dates back to 1896, when travelers came from far and near to soak in the therapeutic thermal mineral waters on this site. You can enjoy the same benefits of relaxing in the riverside hot springs pools, with modern-day amenities you’ll appreciate.
Step into one of 16 soaking pools filled with pure, thermal mineral water. A quiet zone surrounds these pools to ensure a peaceful setting. Each pool is a little different, with temperatures ranging from 98 to 108°F, and all are tucked into the riverbank with mountain views that soothe and inspire.
