I don’t really recall how the Glenwood Caverns thrill rides popped onto my radar, but all it took was one look at the Giant Canyon Swing and I knew I’d be Colorado bound sooner rather than later.
Being at an elevation over 7,000 feet, swinging 1,300 feet over the Colorado river at speeds up to 50 miles per hour seemed like the ultimate quick rush.
It took me a little over an hour though to get up the nerve to sit in the seat. Once I did, the quick and rapid breathing started……
Then the screaming started, and got louder with each swing that took us higher and faster. It only lasted sixty seconds, but the thrill stayed with me the rest of the day.
Let’s do it again!
