Mountain-top Easter Egg Hunt

Celebrate Easter with Glenwood Caverns Adventure Park’s annual mountaintop Easter Egg Hunt. The Easter Bunny is going to hide 3,000 eggs around the park, including six golden eggs with two Annual Thrill Passes tucked inside. The hunt will be divided into three age groups, with two Annual Thrill Passes tucked inside the eggs for each group. The hunt begins at 1 p.m., and the Easter Bunny will be hippity-hopping around the park for photos from 1 to 3 p.m. This is a popular event so please arrive at the base by noon at the latest. Tram ride and park admission cost $13 for adults, $8 for kids ages 3 to 12 and free for children younger than 3. Annual Thrill Pass and Annual tram Pass holders ride the tram for free.
