It is a great place for both the roller coaster amusement park and a water park. They are combined together. It is a traditional place as well ... it's been around a very long time it's a local favorite and it's downtown Denver so you can eat dinner downtown if you spend the day at elitches. Two tips: go to King Soopers for a cheaper ticket and if you don't want to spend the money on the food in the park just pack a cooler and you can eat in the parking lot ... I believe they still have the picnic tables or sometimes we just eat under one of the trees.

Must Read Tips
When traveling around remember these tips: Mountain driving requires you to pull over in a shoulder or scenic site spot to let cars behind you pass when there is more than 3 and when two lanes open up to stay in the right. Also, always travel with layers for cold, wind, and rain. Colorado weather changes fast so be prepared by taking a backpack with coats and sweatshirts for a wise way to protect yourself when it changes. It's true when they say wait five minutes. If you are traveling back from the mountains on I70 on a Sunday, leave before 11 or after 7 because the traffic down is aweful.

Exploring The Mountains
Gas up before you go, pack a backpack with coats, water bottles, sun screen, sunglasses, sweatshirts, and hats. It is wise to add towels and extra shoes for the car In case you get wet when exploring in the mountains. Wear either hiking boots or in summer waterproof heavy Teva types, especially when tubing the rivers in Ft Collins down the Poudre or the Boulder Canyon. Both are fun.

MUST READ: ALTITUDE SICKNESS
It's a real thing when you come to visit. You won't be able to drink nearly as much alcohol as you do at home. It will hit you harder and faster. Give yourself a day to acclimate, and another when you go higher. We have oxygen bars so take advantage of those if breathing becomes difficult. Go down if you start feeling sick, It means you went too high too fast. Going down will correct that. Bring gum to chew to help your ears pop as you go high. Especially for kids, it can hurt like in a plane.
