Staged on lakes that have no competing boats, tubers or power turners, Mile High Wakeboarding’s lessons give students smooth waters to practice basic, intermediate, or advanced techniques. Professional instructors teach students of any level by pulling them with cables attached to boats or the cable park’s overhead cable apparatus. Each class has an average ratio of one instructor for every three students, resulting in one-on-one interaction. The cable park has an air cable for practicing tricks and learning how to ride and a slider cable for attempting jumps off aquatic obstacles, such as a 62-foot fun box. Friends and family members can cheer on students from the cable park’s surrounding beaches or any blimps they've rented for the day.

During summer vacation, students ages 10–18 can opt for wakeboarding day camps in Colorado and Texas. Mile High Wakeboarding also offers wakeboarding boat charter rentals, houseboat trips, swimming lessons, and private group events.

Water is a powerful compound. It can carve deep canyons, power hydroelectric plants, or even give people superhuman abilities. The latter feat is accomplished aboard Rocky Mountain Flyboard Colorado's water-propulsion flying machines. Nozzles strapped to hands and feet lift pilots up to 40 feet in the air, let them dive into the water, or allow them to perform advanced tricks such as back flips.

Slate Entertainment's Down Under Comedy Club (a rare breed in northern Colorado) elevates spirits with standup showcases five days a week. On weekends, touring headlining comics fill the bill, while weeknight open mics put budding gutbusters through comedy boot camp. Monthly cabaret burlesque shows add a little va-va-voom to the usual har-de-har.

Meanwhile, mason jars hold super-sized drinks, which tend to feature neon-colored liqueurs that won't sting if they get up your nose. They're paired with a menu of flatbread pizzas, sandwiches, and bread bowls filled with soup or salad.

Each batch of Syntax Spirits Distillery’s vodka, whisky, and rum is made by hand using stainless-and-copper fractionating stills, Colorado Weld County wheat or American Molasses, and Cache La Poudre River whitewater. The result of these curated elements are incredibly smooth, complex spirits versatile enough to be sipped or mixed.

At the distillery, visitors are filled in on the process that brings these drinks to life and can taste the fruits of the facility’s labor. Along with its signature spirits, the distillery boasts housemade infusions that range from bourbon vanilla to citrus flavors. Guests can sample the different infusions as chilled shots or in a signature cocktail at the cocktail bar in the industrial-style tasting room where neon signs and antique light fixtures illuminate each sip. When guests aren’t mid-pinball game or sampling drinks at the 40-foot-long concrete bar, the staff leads complimentary tours of the distillery’s manufacturing area, where Laverne & Shirley imitations are prohibited.
