Colorado is definitely known for its high-octane winter pursuits, but summer and fall gatherings with plenty of adrenalin junkies won’t be disappointed with options such as these.

Aerial & Zipline Adventures: Captain Zipline Aerial Adventure Park, a Euro-style aerial park, is located in a canyon near Salida with nine different courses and 120 elements. A bit farther east and recently rebuilt after major impact from a forest fire, Royal Gorge Bridge & Park near Cañon City is back with attractions like the brand new jig-back Poma Tram and Zip Rider Zipline, now North America’s highest zip line. Fortunately, America’s highest suspension bridge was not damaged. Also, Steamboat Zip Line Tours opened this summer on Rabbit Ears Pass with lines ranging from 700 to 1,200 feet in length, and the Broadmoor Soaring Adventure is launching this summer and fall with two zip-line courses featuring five lines each at Seven Falls.

Alpine Coaster & Slide: Located at the base of Peak 8 in Breckenridge, Gold Runner Alpine Coaster offers 2,500 feet of elevated alpine track. When riding Winter Park’s Alpine Slide, expect a 610-foot vertical drop on the 3,000-foot-long alpine slide, Colorado’s longest.

Hair-Raising Rides: At Cave of the Winds in Manitou Springs, TERROR-Dactyl is an aerial dive ride that sits on the edge of a 200- foot cliff in Williams Canyon and launches riders at nearly 100 miles per hour. Likewise, the Giant Canyon Swing at Glenwood Caverns Adventure Park in Glenwood Springs is perched on a rock precipice and sends riders out a terrifying 1,300 feet above the Colorado River at nearly 50 miles per hour. On the Front Range, Elitch Gardens’ water park in Denver has added SlideZilla, a six-story water slide that involves going into a 24-foot bowl, dropping 57 feet and heading up into a fourstory-high tornado wave.

Kevin Hubschmann is a New Jersey-based comedian who has been making people laugh for most of his life. But after not finding as many opportunities to perform live even before the pandemic, he started hosting popup comedy shows in New York City in 2019 under the business name Laugh.Events (pronounced Laugh Dot Events).

 

In the wake of a total global crisis, the Meet Minneapolis team got to work. 

Connecting the Community

Last summer, as communities across the state reeled, the CVB launched the “We Need Us!” campaign as a rally cry and reminder on the importance of supporting the businesses that make Minneapolis so unique.

“It really came from this question of, ‘How can we support our community that’s hurting in so many ways and make locals feel comfortable making those choices?’” says senior vice president of destination branding & strategy Courtney Ries.

 

Your team may have worn out the Zoom happy hour, but these virtual team-building options offer ways to connect and engage on a whole new level.
