Overview
More
Discovered in 1881, Cave of the Winds has been a premier Colorado attraction for more than a century. Explore amazing caverns, experience total cave darkness, and marvel at the beauty of formations hundreds of thousands of years old. Then step outside and walk on the wind on the Wind Walker Challenge Course, fly like a bat on the Bat-a-Pult Zip Line, and dive into Williams Canyon on the one of a kind aerial dive ride, the TERROR-Dactyl. Lots of family fun, amazing views and memories to last a lifetime!

My whole family enjoyed this, even those of us who don't like tight spaces. We were visiting from Texas and if we are in the area again I want to do the lantern tour next time!

It was the first visit to Cave of the Winds for my grand children -- ages 5, 9 and 11 and they absolutely loved it! Next time they want to do the lantern tour and the zip line!
