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!

Parking sucks - did not enjoy it at all - had someone who was having alot of problems breathing due to smoke in the air the day of our visit - should have been able to drop her off closer to the building

It's an amazing attraction. I went when I was a child and I was ecstatic to be able to take my son to see what I saw when I was his age. The tour guide was amazing, the view is amazing!!

The discovery tour is great if you want to spend about 30-40 minutes exploring the cave. Do not choose the lantern tour unless you are ok with touring in the dark (lantern only). Be prepared to stoop often as the clearance is low so if...More

Hi Sherlb! Thank you for asking. The average time to do the Discovery Tour and all of the rides would be about 2 - 2.5 hours. However, if you plan on coming in the summer, specifically July, it could take closer to 4 hours... More
