Buried deep within the walls of the infamous Nightmare Factory is a hidden passage that descends two levels into Gordon Cottingham's Hospital for the Mentally Insane. Recently discovered, and deeper and darker than the previous levels, the damp and musty corridors are infested with spiders, rats, snakes, and other vermin. The eerie atmosphere is amplified by the endless screams of the tortured and damned souls that met their demise within the walls of the hospital. From the creators of the 13th Floor haunted house and Nightmare Factory, the Asylum features new frights for in-your-face terror.
Cinebarre combines a slate of first-run movies with a courteous, alcohol-enhanced atmosphere and crave-worthy kitchen concoctions. The menu features items with movie-inspired names, allowing cinephiles to pick a dish that aligns with their preferred genre or favorite Bill Paxton performance. Take teeth to the made-from-scratch pizza playground with the Chicken Run, topped with grilled chicken, caramelized onions, cheese, and barbecue sauce ($13).

Elvis Cinemas invites wide-eyed audiences to plunge into the ocean, soar above the clouds, and traipse across stretches of barren desert, all from the comfort of a theater seat. Its trio of theaters shows Hollywood blockbusters but keeps ticket prices down by playing them slightly after their initial release, when the characters have learned from their mistakes and changed their movie’s plot accordingly. Unlike the massive movie corporations whose theater complexes pop up in every city and shopping mall, Elvis Cinemas is Colorado owned and operated and focuses all its attention on just three theaters.
Sprouting from rock 'n' roll roots, Rockabillies fuses the reverberating echoes of classic guitar riffs with handcrafted, half-pound burgers and a menu stocked with comforting eats. Guests inaugurate noshing sessions with sizzling starters such as buffalo chicken rolls—a symphony of grilled chicken, buffalo sauce, and blue cheese crumbles held in tune by crispy spring rolls. Next, dining duos or foursomes set aside air guitars to wrap hands around a Memphis burger, which is served balancing tiers of applewood-smoked bacon and a cloak of sweet barbecue sauce. Burger baristas outfit the cool rider with jalapeños and cream cheese, and crispy fries piled atop the Route 66 encourage groups to melodiously crunch to the beat of their own drum or the drums of on-stage performers.
