The Haunted Mine Drop at Glenwood Caverns in Glenwood Springs, Colorado was named the Best New Attraction in 2017 by USA Today!
If you’ve never heard of the ride, the Haunted Mine Drop is a drop tower that is located in a shed that looks like it was an old mine company.
What is so unusual is that this ride is at a small adventure park. The park has rides, but it isn’t a traditional amusement/theme park.
The ride plays a show at the beginning and then quietly removes the floor under you.
People say that you can ride it 20 times and you still don’t know when it is going to drop!
The ratings have been great and this ride which opened in July of 2017 has drawn much more people to the park. The park wouldn’t release the total number of guests that visited, but they said that it was record-breaking for them.
The ride is the first drop ride to go underground dropping 110 feet with 4G acceleration!
This drop ride is like no ride we have ever seen!
