Is it time to plan your next family vacation? While you’re researching plane tickets, comparing lodging prices and looking into different attractions, there are a few additional things to consider for your getaway to Estes Park.
Take a look at the events calendar. Sure, there are many Colorado-specific activities that you want to experience, but have you considered the smaller, lesser-known events that may be going on while you’re in the area? Take a look at the Estes Park events calendar to find local markets, festivals and classes that may interest your family.
Purchase tickets in advance. Depending on what your itinerary looks like, you may need to purchase your tickets in advance. Some places, including the Rocky Mountain National Park, require timed entry passes. Once you decide what you’d like to do, be sure to purchase tickets as necessary to keep your trip flowing seamlessly.
Bring layers of clothing. Mountain weather can be unpredictable, and dressing in layers can help you be prepared for any type of weather you encounter while on your trip. During the winter season, be sure to bring heavy jackets, hats and gloves to keep yourself warm. If you’re traveling during spring, summer or fall, a light jacket hoodie may be sufficient and necessary.
Be prepared to see wildlife at all times. If you aren’t used to seeing wildlife regularly, you’re in for a treat! Estes Park is encompassed by protected lands that offer abundant habitats to an array of wildlife. It is common to see animals while driving through town. Be ready to snap a picture at any time!
How long you plan to stay. There is so much to see in and around Estes Park! If possible, staying a full seven days is advised. Between the outdoor activities, hiking adventures and local events, your trip to Colorado may need to be your big yearly vacation. If staying a long period of time isn’t possible, a long weekend will do—as long as you begin planning your next getaway to Estes Park soon after.
One thing you absolutely won’t want to miss out on is a trip on the Mustang Mountain Coaster. It’s a thrilling, scenic adventure that the whole family will enjoy!

Having fun is an innate desire for humans and animals alike. As long as species have been around, they have been inventing games, contraptions and devices to help them stay entertained—and the drive to have fun is also what spawned the invention of the mountain coaster.
Mountain coasters, also known as alpine coasters, have been around since 1996 and have been changing the way people have fun ever since. Below, we will be looking at some of the history and unique traits of mountain coasters so you can study up before you come and experience the thrill for yourself.
The first mountain coaster (trademarked as an alpine coaster) was invented by a German company called Brandauer and opened in Austria in 1996.
They were inspired by the popularity of bobsled coasters but decided to use rails instead of a trough for the track. To this day, Brandauer is known for its single-tube aluminum design, and its alpine coasters can be found throughout towns in the Alps.
While the original Brandauer design was constructed with a monorail-style track, some mountain coasters are built with a double-track system that is similar to a roller coaster.
Regardless of the single or double-track system, alpine coasters are beneficial in mountainous areas because their design allows them to run year-round and not be hindered by snow or ice.
Mountain coasters are not only a lot of fun, but they are also an interactive experience for riders. Riders can control their speed using a lever brake system on their cart, but there are still anti-collision measures in place to prevent any dangerous riding.
Today, the longest mountain coaster in the world is 17,400 feet, according to the Guinness Book of World Records! It is located at the Naturlandia resort near Sant Julià de Lòria, Andorra.

Putting together a birthday party is such a fun activity regardless of what the overall plan is but planning a destination birthday party is something that is so special! Whether you are throwing a birthday party for a child, a close friend or another family member, a destination birthday party is something he or she is sure to never forget.
While the logistics of a destination birthday party are a bit more difficult to think through, with this helpful guide, you can be certain you have prepared for everything that needs to be considered! From picking the right place to ensuring that the event goes off without a hitch, read on for everything you need to know.
Start by picking the perfect location. Before you decide on anything else, picking the perfect location is a must. Finding a getaway that is easy for your guests to get to and has plenty of activities to see and do throughout your stay will be the easiest way to be certain that everyone has a blast.
Give guests plenty of notice. While many people think of “save the dates” as solely being for weddings, they are a smart idea for a destination birthday party as well! That way you can be certain that your guests get plenty of notice for the occasion and are able to plan their travel out accordingly.
Think through your itinerary. While it is not necessary to plan out every moment of the occasion, it is important to give guests a general idea of things to do when they arrive! Planning out dinners and activities while leaving the rest of the time open is a great way to give people time to recharge and explore on their own while also keeping things structured enough to omit confusion.
Plan one thing that is unforgettable. The whole event will be one to remember, but do not forget to plan something that will really wow your guests (and your guest of honor). Something like a Mountain Coaster Ride would be a fantastic option to give everyone a unique and unforgettable experience.
If you are interested in celebrating a birthday with us, we would love to chat! Contact us today to learn more about our birthday party accommodation options.

As you plan your trip, allow us to suggest a few fun family-friendly adventures in the area that you are sure to enjoy. Some of these will be open seasonally, while some you can enjoy all year round.
Since 1958 Sombrero Stables has been offering trail rides in the Estes Park area. While much has changed since 1958, you can still experience the Rockies just like the first settlers did with these beautiful horseback tours. From their short thirty-minute walking tours to their longer two-hour tours that feature views of Big Thompson Canyon, the Continental Divide, and Estes Valley there are options for everyone even if you are short on time.
We can't say for certain, but you might want to start these rousing, off-road adventures with your back in good condition. Backbone Adventures is a rental company specializing in the rowdiest of rides, from ATVs to snowmobiles. You can rent the ride of your choice, then spend the day on a recommended trail, guided by a nifty navigation tablet. Of course, you could take a leisurely ride—but why would you?
Some days, you might prefer to roll serenely along, taking in the scenery and admiring any wildlife you encounter. In this case, look into a scenic drive through Rocky Mountain National Park, like the twenty-three-mile loop of Bear Lake Road. Open year-round, this beautiful drive will take you by Sprague Lake, Glacier Creek, and, of course, the stunning Bear Lake. If you take this drive don't forget to stop at the Moraine Park Discovery Center, a “must do” if you are going through the park!
Of course, we can't forget our own adventure. Mountain Mustang Coaster combines scenic views with adrenaline-pumping speed as you sail downhill on a coaster that follows the contours of the landscape. We'll be open very soon, and we hope to see you here!
