TripAdvisor has released its 2018 top 25 lists for both amusement parks and water parks in the United States, and two Colorado parks have made the cut.
Colorado's own Glenwood Caverns Adventure Park (Glenwood Springs) and Water World (Federal Heights) were recognized by TripAdvisor as the top amusement and water parks in the country! The two parks were named among other large attractions, including Universal's Island of Adventure, The Magic Kingdom at Walt Disney World, Busch Gardens, and SeaWorld Orlando, among many others.
Glenwood Caverns Adventure Park was named the 20th best amusement park, while Water World ranked as the 13th best water park in the U.S.
The rankings were determined on the number and quality of user ratings on TripAdvisor.
Glenwood Caverns Adventure Park
Between the park's cave tours, thrill rides like the Mine Drop and Alpine Coaster, various events and specials, and so much more, it's no wonder it was named as one of the best amusement parks in the country. Not to mention, the views of the Roaring Fork Valley and surrounding mountains are pretty spectacular.

Get ready to take the plunge! At Water World, there are an array of fun attractions that'll be sure to keep you cool all summer long. And definitely make sure you check out the new Glacier Run thrill ride, which sends you straight down a steep mountain at about 25 mph through icy-blue flumes and glaciers!
