Choose Between Two Options
- $41 for a half-day raft trip for one with Performance Package rental ($69 value)
- $33 for a High Adventure zipline and ropes course for one ($55 value)
Ideal for beginners and intermediate rafters—including families—the half-day rafting trip sends you powering through the Shoshone whitewater rapids. You’ll catch glimpses of the rugged scenery around the Colorado River, including Glenwood Canyon. The Performance Package rental includes a wetsuit, booties, and splash jacket. You should also bring a swimsuit, change of clothes, sunscreen, towels, and water from home.
The High Adventure begins with your ascent up a 40-foot climbing wall. Once you reach the top, guides will strap you into a belay system before you an embark on a ropes course that features multiple towers and bridges. At the end, you’ll sail through the air on a zipline, gliding back and forth over the Colorado River, catching glimpses of rafters paddling furiously through the water’s rapids.
Customers receive complimentary round-trip transportation between the Glenwood Springs office and the course or river. Purchase both options in the Groupon and schedule a full day of fun. This deal does not cover the required 8% fee for land use ($6.32/person).
Colorado Adventure Center
Visitors to Colorado Adventure Center explore much of its terrain suspended above the pine trees—specifically, hanging from eight ziplines that span almost a mile and reach heights of up to 65 feet and speeds up to 40 miles per hour. Harnessed up into a pulley system, riders glide over Clear Creek as it glimmers in the sunlight or, at nighttime, in the bright beams of their headlamps—which can also be used to spot teenage woodpeckers vandalizing trees with lovers' initials.
Clear Creek’s waters are also the setting for rafting and kayaking expeditions, during which guides lead paddlers down the rapids of the Arkansas and Colorado Rivers during outings and spring break trips. On solid ground, adventurers hit the trails of the Vail Pass and Glenwood Canyon on scenic biking trips, pedaling along paths lined with trees and rivers with options for bipeds of all skill levels. During spring months, zipliners can soar through newly blooming trees and flowers for a scenic treetop adventure.
