Glenwood Caverns Adventure Park received approval from state and local officials to reopen with new COVID-19 safety procedures in place. The mountain-top theme park in Glenwood Springs, Colorado, opens to the public on June 8.
“It’s important for us to meet or exceed the guidelines set forth by local, regional, state and federal agencies for operating in a COVID-19 environment,” Glenwood Caverns Adventure Park co-owner Steve Beckley explained. “Our leadership team and managers have worked diligently to develop and implement plans that allow us to do so. Simply put, we’re doing everything we can to keep our guests and employees as safe as possible while still providing the Colorado-style hospitality and entertainment that they love. We ask that our guests do their part as well by staying home if they’re sick and adhering to our new protocols.”
There are many changes that guests will notice on their first visits. For everyone’s safety, park employees and guests are required to wear face coverings. Guests will need to follow the city and county guidelines at the time of their visit. Employees receive daily health screenings and enhanced training. Touchless transactions are used whenever possible. Plexiglass sneeze guards at registers, additional hand-sanitizing stations and social distancing markers have been installed. Employees are cleaning and disinfecting common touchpoints throughout the property frequently.
“The most noticeable and important change is reduced capacity,” added Beckley. “We control the flow of people into the park with a limited number arriving at reserved entry times. The park covers 10 acres, so there is plenty of room for people to spread out and enjoy their visit without feeling crowded. Our fresh mountain air and breathtaking views are a welcome relief for those who’ve spent so much time sheltered in place these past few months.”
