Halloween is quickly approaching, which means it’s time to start planning fall activities the whole family can enjoy. Finding activities that aren’t too scary for the little ones, yet entertaining for older children and adults can be a bit challenging. Therefore, we’ve gathered a list of some great Halloween Activities for the entire family:
Boo at the Zoo – Gather the family and visit the Denver zoo for a unique trick-or-treating experience. Taking place the weekend of Halloween, 20 treat stations and creepy crawly animal demonstrations will take over the zoo during the daylight hours. In the evening, however, the zoo will offer spooky trick or treating for the more adventurous older kids.
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 Arkansas Valley Adventures‘ 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 kid-friendly aerial bridges, it’s easy to find a route through the course that suites how much adrenaline you’d like to get pumping.
Skiing at Arapahoe Basin – A-Basin already has one trail open for the season with many more to open soon. Why not dress the kids up and take a ski trip on Halloween? With intermediate terrain currently available and ski school opening soon, drop the kids off and spend some time on the slopes donning your own fabulous costumes.
