Coors Brewery Tour

Denver is home to the biggest single-site brewery in the world: Coors Brewery. Take a tour around this famous site and learn something new! In only 30 minutes, explore the brewhouse, malthouse and packaging complex. You can see the process first-hand of how over a hundred work teams make one of the most popular beers in the world. Sample some of the product and get your very own commemorative glass. Finish up at the gift shop and get a hat or shirt to complete the experience.

Elitch Gardens Theme & Water Park

Celebrating 130 years of fun, Elitch Gardens is both a theme park and a water park! Easy to get to from the Denver area, there are 54 rides and attractions to choose from.  There are themed adventures, thrilling roller coasters, an entire water park and special events, namely the Fright Fest in October when the entire park becomes a Spooktacular trip. There’s so much to try- if you have the guts! The Mind Eraser is a brutally fun suspension coaster that rises 10 stories and then drops at over 60 mph. The Half Pipe is short but intense as it takes 60 seconds to project 17 victims/visitors up and down its great height whilst spinning in their seat. If you’ve survived all that, why not try Elitch’s XLR8R? The world’s highest free-fall swing. Strap in and go flying across the park, almost touching the ground before shooting back up into the sky. To call this an exciting day out would be an understatement.
