We were really looking forward to seeing the caves and stories . We were told not to touch the rocks because it would kill the caves, but once inside they told how they excavated areas to accommodate more people. So didn't the kill the cave.

Ok, so we only went to ride the Terror-Dactyl so don't read any further if you're curious about the caves themselves. We loved the ride...but the price for a 5 minute ride is kind of steep. After the ride, they provide picture and video, we...More

The cave was great but I came down with altitude sickness in the middle of the tour. They could not have been nicer or more helpful.

This was one of our stops on our anniversary trip weekend and I have to say it was the best part of Colorado Springs. We went on the lantern tour and it was definitely worth the extra cost.

What is a safe amount of time to allot for Cave of the winds now that they have added new attractions. We have other things planned so want to make sure to allow sufficient time for Discovery tour, and rides, and obstacle course?

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
