A guided walking cave tour will take you through the cave system to see places like Kings Row, the most highly decorated cave room in Colorado and the Barn, the second largest cave room in Colorado. The Park also includes rides like North America's first Alpine roller coaster, and a Screamin' Swing called the "Giant Canyon Swing", which swings riders out over the edge of Glenwood Canyon, looking down at the Colorado River 1,300 feet below. The most recent addition to the park is the cliffhanger roller coaster. This coaster, added in 2013 is located near the top of the mountain and sits near the edge of a cliff.
