Halloween is quickly approaching which means it’s time to start planning fall activities the whole family can enjoy. Luckily for those residing near the city of Denver, there is an abundance of spooky Halloween themed events to enjoy. Here are just a few things to do near Denver this Halloween:
Boo at the Zoo – On October 29-30, gather the kids and visit the Denver zoo for a family-friendly trick or treating experience. With 20 treat stations and creepy crawly animal demonstrations, the daylight zoo hours offer a fun environment for the young and the young at heart. In the evening, however, the zoo will quickly become “haunted” with night time trick or treating suitable for the older crowd.
The Denver Botanic Gardens Corn Maze – As one of the most attended corn mazes in the country, The Denver Botanic Gardens’ 8 acres of corn maze is sure to impress. Kids (and adults) young and old can wander through the maze in search of Farmer Green’s “lost animals”. Families can also enjoy hay rides, pony rides, and a variety of fall food vendors while visiting the maze.
Starlight Zipline Tour – Experience the spooky fall night life while zipping under the light of the stars with Colorado Zipline’s Starlight Zipline Tour located in Idaho Springs. Guests will get to experience six different ziplines built into an Idaho Springs Cliffside. With an optional free fall and other aerial features, the starlight tour is sure to get your adrenaline pumping and ready for a night of Halloween fun.
