Cave of the Winds

Cave of the Winds - Things to do in Colorado Springs! Make sure to bring some Naked Juice along to fuel your adventure! Bruce & I live in a touristy state. There are so many fun things to do and see in Colorado that people from all over the world come to do! It is so fun to live in a beautiful place – we always have fun places to eat, local places to shop, beautiful hiking year round, easy access to the mountains, and lots of fun activities at our finger tips! Cave of the Winds is a local attraction here in town. I remember going in the early 90’s on a field trip but Bruce had never been before. Isn’t that how things go sometimes when you are a local? You save your money and experiences for vacations and out of town trips when there are so many experiences near by that you forget about!

So this summer we are Pressing Play on new adventures nearby – like the one of a kind Terror-Dactyl ride at Cave of the Winds that dives off a 200-foot cliff in Williams Canyon and goes at speeds up to 100 mph! AHHHHH. Don’t worry. They record you as you drop so you can literally see me screaming as we plummet (see embedded Youtube video below 😉 ) I saw the ride on The Today Show and it instantly was added to my bucket list!

Bruce and I snuck away for a Friday night date night after work. We wanted new, local, and adventure so we ended up at the Cave of the Winds. We went on an hour tour through the caves & learned all about some local history (which I cannot get enough of!) and we also went on the Terror-Dactyl ride where I “pre-screamed” and almost peed my pants 😉 We brought along some of the new Naked Cold Pressed Juices to fuel our adventures and hold us over until dinnertime. Each Naked Cold Pressed Juice is made with ready-to-eat, high quality fruits and vegetables that are cold-pressed right into the bottle- shipped fresh & packed with all good things!

We thoroughly  enjoyed ourselves and loved being tourists in our home town! We played in the golden light and watched the sun peak behind the mountains before we drove back down for dinner. If you’re near or if you’re far, Cave of the Winds should be an adventure on your list. So should the other adventures near you. And bring along Naked Juice to fuel your adventures.

PS: If you are wondering why we couldn’t ride together in the videos it is because they have strict rules about weight #safetyfirst. The difference between Bruce and I was too much and would have resulting in too much spinning! Instead we both rode with the same employee!

  • I love being a “tourist” in my own town but there are still many things we’ve missed! I lived in Chicagoland for 20 years but I still haven’t been to the top of the Sears aka Willis Tower. I’ll need to remedy that during one of our visits home.

    • Oak & Oats

      Yes! Totally! There are just some things we forget to do! Funny thing, I’ve been to Chicago once and I’ve been to the top of the Sears tower! haahah!

  • Soooo much fun! This is going on my list for my next trip to Colorado.

    • Oak & Oats

      Yes! Add it. Right now. haha!

  • What a fun date night!!

    • Oak & Oats

      It was such a blast!

  • Beth! That looks so scary! I do not think I could do that – props to you! I am so afraid of heights and I wish I wasn’t, but that looks like a big drop!

  • We live in a touristy state as well, Florida, but other than the beach and mini golf, we don’t have fun outdoorsy type things. This place looks like so much fun! We are the outdoorsy family who likes to hike and explore, so this is right up our alley!

  • Oh my gosh, that ride! I’m not sure I can even handle watching the video. But yay for y’all for exploring locally and braving a drop like that!

    • Oak & Oats

      hhahah! I love that! Thanks so much Abby!

  • We went to Cave of the Winds last summer when we visited Colorado. My grandma was with us and about had a panic attack just watching strangers ride the Terror-Dactyl ride. I was too much of a chicken to actually try it. It looks like you guys had a blast!

    • Oak & Oats

      That is so fun! And yes, I told Bruce we were doing that before we got there and once we went back and saw it I was like “maybe not” but by then Bruce was like we already have tickets! hahaha! IT was absolutely terrifying but a blast!

  • SO MUCH NOPE!! hahaha!!!!
    I really enjoy being a tourist in my own place. We just moved from Michigan to Oklahoma, and it’s so fun exploring!!

    • Oak & Oats

      hahah! Maybe you would like it!! 😉

      And wonderful! Have so much fun exploring!

  • I would be way too scared to do this! haha. I hear you on the local adventures. Michael and I used to live in a small town that didn’t offer much, but now that we’re relocated to Charleston there’s SO much to do all the time. It’s a little overwhelming at times.

    • Oak & Oats

      haha! I know. I felt crazy!

  • i can’t wait to just breathe in the colorado air! <3

    • Oak & Oats

      I can’t wait for you to be here with us!
