Denver - Things to do with your Team - Travel - Hotels4Teams

Thrills await at Elitch Gardens, Denver’s primo adventure park featuring 53 rides, including high-speed coasters like the 7-story high, looping Brain Drain or the Mind Eraser, a feet-dangling ride that dives and double-corkscrews at more than 50 miles per hour.

The latest addition to the park is the Star Flyer, one of the tallest rides in Colorado at 17 stories high. You’ll sit in an open-air seat as you’re swung around and around at breakneck speed while enjoying the views of the Denver skyline as much as the adrenaline rush.

Admission to the park includes access to the water park, where you can scream down the 65-foot tall Acapulco Cliff Dive free-fall slide and get spun around and swallowed up on the fierce Slidezilla, a 6-story monster slide that’ll get your adrenaline flowing. 2000 Elitch Cir, Denver, CO 80204


12 Mile Stables

About 25 miles southwest of Denver you’ll find 12 Mile Stables, offering scenic trail rides atop  tame horses. You don’t need any riding experience to enjoy the one to two hour guided rides, where you can channel your inner cowboy or cowgirl and commune with nature.

With over 27 miles of trails on over 3,000 acres, there’s something to see over every hill and around every corner. The Sunset Dinner Ride is a local favorite and offers a perfect vantage point for enjoying the colorful Colorado sunset over the mountains, followed by plates piled high with barbecue beef brisket, chicken, cowboy baked beans, and potato salad. It’s a delicious ending to a hard day of adventuring. 5547 S Parker Rd, Aurora, CO 80014

Denver Mint

The Denver Mint is a fascinating place, and you’ll definitely want to go behind the scenes on a free guided tour. Watch in wonder as the precision machines cut, stamp, count, and bag coins so efficiently that they can produce millions of pennies, nickels, dimes, and quarters every day.

Make a reservation online in advance to be sure you get a place on the tour, and remember, this is a heavily-guarded Federal facility where cash money gets made, and they don’t just let people in willy-nilly.

There’s a list of things you can’t have on you during the tour, including purses and bags, and you’ll go through a security screening complete with metal detectors and x-ray machines, which can be a pretty interesting experience in and of  itself.

However, the requirements to enter are well worth getting a firsthand look at the inner workings of one of the most interesting and storied institutions in the history of the country. 320 W Colfax Ave, Denver, CO 80204


Red Rocks Park

Denver is a fun, exciting metropolis, but it’s surrounding landscape is weird and wild enough that you won’t want to miss the opportunity to explore it.

Red Rocks Park, just 25 minutes from Denver proper, is home to the world-famous Red Rocks Amphitheater. It also offers a number of exciting hiking trails, including the Trading Post Trail, a short, hour-long loop hike that takes you past 10 of the ginormous red rock formations the park is named after. You’ll traverse mountain meadows and enjoy scenic bluff overlooks that offer sweeping views of the Front Range, and if you keep an eye peeled, you might see a family of red foxes or a herd of mule deer.

The nearby amphitheater is naturally formed and well-known for its amazing natural acoustics, and you can wander around pretty freely if there’s not an event going on. Daily scheduled tours of the facilities give you a fascinating behind-the-scenes look at how a major concert venue works, from the sound booth to the stage. 18300 W Alameda Pkwy, Morrison, CO 80465
