Water has never been more thrilling — because Glenwood Hot Springs Resort is in the final stages of a complete make-over of our west-end pool section. We have replaced the existing waterslides, kiddie pool, and miniature golf course with the Sopris Spash Zone, an all new area with water attractions for the whole family.
The Sopris Splash Zone will offer you and your family new ways to splash your way to happiness, with:
  • Now open - Shoshone Chutes: A whitewater river tube ride that plunges you downhill with plenty of twists and turns and screams. You'll feel like you're riding down a mountain creek in Colorado—with lush landscaping, cascading tiers, and boulders.
  • Now Open - Sopris Splash Zone: A new children's play area with mini-water slides, interactive water features, shallow play areas, and shade structures for sun protection
  • Now Open - Grand Fountain: A water feature that acts as a kid-friendly splash pad by day — by night it becomes a lighted fountain that can be seen by pool-goers and Glenwood Springs visitors strolling across the pedestrian bridge
