Vail Thrill Rides

Are you looking for the ultimate adrenaline rush? The Vail Valley offers great white-knuckle thrill rides like the Alpine Coaster, the Swing Shot, Zip Lines adventures, bungee trampolines, rock climbing walls and an alpine slide. All of these activities are safe and loads of fun, but they are not for the faint of heart. Younger kids can enjoy all the thrills of the Wild West Wagon Ride at Glenwood Springs Adventure Park.

The historic mining town of Leadville, Colorado is only a short, scenic drive from the Vail Valley. Here you will find spectacular views and volumes of living history. Winding through this breathtaking, historically rich landscape is the Leadville, Colorado & Southern Railroad.


Originating in "the highest incorporated city in North America," the LC&S takes passengers along the old Denver, South Park & Pacific and Colorado & Southern lines to the Continental Divide. This ride is full of breathtaking panoramas across the Arkansas River Valley and informational narratives about Leadville's storied history. Mining and railroading were a large part of the local history, and today's passengers will find it easy to step back in time on the Leadville, Colorado & Southern. Throughout the summer months the Leadville Co. & Southern Railroad offers themed rides such as murder mystery rides or wildflower viewing rides. Call ahead for their schedule of summer offerings.
