“Great Activity for the Family!”

This was so fun! We did the cave tour and the wind walker/zip line attraction. Our tour guide was fun and informative, and seeing the inside of a cave was a cool experience!

Discovery Tour

An Ideal Family Tour! Explore the electrically lit portion of the Cave of the Winds on a 45 – 60 minute guided walking tour which includes 15 rooms, a 1/2 mile of concrete walkways, and 196 stairs. On this family-friendly tour, you will learn about the history and geology of the cave while being shown some of its most beautiful formations.

Lantern Tour

A Thrilling Adventure! Explore, by candlelight, the mysterious and unimproved Manitou Grand Caverns on a 90-minute guided walking tour nearly a mile long. Like the adventurers of the past, you will navigate dark narrow tunnels, low passageways, uneven stairs, and rooms with muddy, original floors. You will learn the history of Cave of the Winds as well as the frightening folklore, scary ghost stories, and unexplained phenomena of the Manitou Grands.

Caving 101

Take An Exciting Cave Trek! Explore the wild, undeveloped depths of the Manitou Grand Caverns on a 2 – 2.5 hour guided tour that involves an assortment of crawling, climbing, and walking through wet and muddy passages of various sizes. On this tour, you will crawl/climb/walk for nearly a mile while learning basic spelunking skills as well as the history and geology of the cave.

Frontier Zip Lines

Try out our two zip lines totaling over ¼ mile long and 80’ above the canyon floor! Zipping at Cave of the Winds Mountain Park is our newest addition to our aboveground adventures!

Magic Lantern Virtual Reality Theatre

Journey into a virtual world in our Magic Lantern Virtual Reality Theatre! Experience soaring aerial views, speed and the excitement that thrill seekers crave!

Via Ferrata

You won’t need nerves of steel for this experience, but you will need an adventurous spirit for outdoor climbing fun! The excitement of vertical canyon walls and amazing views will make for a perfect Colorado Adventure!

The Bat-A-Pult

Take to the skies on the Bat-a-Pult, an epic 1200-foot aerial attraction high along beautiful Williams Canyon. Our ride leaves from its roost high in the rafters of our Pavilion and doesn’t end at the bottom. Instead, our unique system pulls you back to the nest!

Wind Walker Challenge Course

Thrill-seekers of all ages will be harnessed to our maze of steel beams, ropes and ladders. Sitting on the rim of a 600 foot drop into Williams Canyon, the views are spectacular! But no fear, it’s safe and fun for the whole family!


The first of its kind anywhere in the world, the TERROR-dactyl sits on the edge of a 200-foot cliff. Those brave enough to ride will be launched 150 feet into the canyon at nearly 100 miles per hour! “By far the best I have ever ridden!”
