Sadly the park closed for good on June 30. If you like a smaller (but still lots of fun) amusement park, you’ll enjoy Heritage Amusement Park (18301 W. Colfax Ave.) in Golden. (Little kids will especially like it because of all the kiddie rides!) Frugal families will appreciate its weekly special, every Tuesday and Thursday, the park offers unlimited rides for $12 (reg. $15) — through August 16.
They’re open weekdays from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. for the summer. (You can upgrade to an Unlimited Fun Pass for $20, which includes unlimited rides, go-karts, mini-golf and boats.) To check out the rides, including physical requirements, click here.
Even better, you can bring in your own food and drinks, as they offer designated family picnic areas for FREE — available on a first-come, first-serve basis. (No alcohol, bottles or BBQ grills are permitted.)
