Rocky Top Glide leverages the energy-conserving powers of the Segway Human Transporter, allowing tour-takers to effortlessly travel city blocks to explore landmarks such as Confluence Park, the Denver Art Museum, and the State Capitol in one fell swoop. Riders follow their guides on a path that snakes toward Coors Field in lower downtown, alongside the streams of the Cherry Creek Trail, and through the central business district's money fields before landing back at the starting point. Meanwhile, the knowledgable guides provide backstories and anecdotes for the sights and sounds that their followers experience.
Denver Bike Bar takes going out to bars to a whole new level.

Though guests cannot drink alcohol aboard the bike, they can imbibe during frequent stops at local microbreweries in LoDo.

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.
When guests cross the threshold into MorbidNights Colorado's Nut House, they enter the tormented minds of history's most notorious serial killers. Inside the 20 rooms that occupy the 12,000 square-foot fear factory, brazen voyagers come face to face with some of the most homicidal humans ever to walk the earth, and shudder with fear as the criminals reenact their notorious crimes or a favorite dance number from South Pacific. Those brave enough to risk the madness do so for a great cause, however, as the haunt donates a portion of its yearly proceeds to worthy causes including the Weld Food Bank or UNC student radio.
Running counter to the belief that the art of model railroading is dead, the Colorado Model Railroad Museum at the Greeley Freight Station keeps bringing in more and more visitors each year. At its center is a lifelike sprawling model train layout that captivates every nearby onlooker. Beyond it, there are more than 600 rail-related artifacts to look at and to never, ever try to eat.
Eye Catcher: The museum's centerpiece, a 5,500-square-foot model railroad so vast and detailed it prompted the senior editor of Modern Railroader magazine to proclaim it "the finest model railroad I've ever seen." Visitors can walk around and through it, admiring the handmade trees, the realistic landscaping, and building replicas made from scratch.
Permanent Mainstay: The collection of artifacts includes a brakeman's lantern from the '40s, antique and operational Union Pacific and Sante Fe clocks, and what staffers dub the World's Smallest Train, with an engine about an inch long.
Don't Miss: a fully restored wooden C&S Caboose, which visitors can explore inside and out
Hands-On Experiments: Kids can play The Eye-Spy game: as they walk around, they seek out the location of dinosaurs, yeti, and the occasional Ewok hiding out in the layout
