“This is such an exciting time for all of us at Glenwood Caverns Adventure Park. After last year’s rough ride, the summer of 2021 is certainly looking up,” Nancy Heard, general manager for Glenwood Caverns Adventure Park, said. “The Cliffhanger Roller Coaster is back, better than ever. We have musicians and new entertainers lined up, and a new restaurant opening soon.”

The new Smokehouse restaurant is expected to open on Saturday in the plaza area at the top of the Glenwood Gondola. Live entertainment is included with park admission or a $38 annual Gondola Pass.

Rides and attractions will remain open through Halloween. Guests are still encouraged to buy their tickets online in order to save time at the gondola base.

Officials still recommend guests wash their hands regularly and maintain social distancing. The park also has plexiglass barriers at indoor cashier stations.
