Situated in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains, the sprawling grounds of Gateway Park Fun Center roll out captivating activities for racers, putters, and gamers. Visitors caper about 18 holes of miniature golf winding through a pastoral outdoor garden, the arched bows of the trees blocking the mischievous sun from blinding eyes and deftly snatching overenthusiastic shots from the air. Players wait their turn on stone benches, admiring the plentiful shrubbery and the soft ripples of the course-lining babbling creeks. Hopping into double- or single-seat go-karts, drivers zip around a 2,100-foot track without having to stop at intersections for families of crossing orange cones, and a separate kiddie track caters to young motorists.
Twenty arcade tokens jangle merrily in pockets with the anticipation of games of skee-ball, Tower of Power, and Wheel of Fortune. Strips of tickets skillfully wrestled from the machines can be turned in for a variety of fun prizes to reward a day of expertly executed fun.
Gateway Park Fun Center
Located at the base of the Rocky Mountains, Gateway Park Fun Center combines the splendor of its natural backdrop with a variety of manmade attractions. Fresh mountain air courses through the two 18-hole mini-golf courses and whips the hair of go-kart racers on a track more than 2,100 feet long. Guests with unstable hairdos can retreat inside, where an arcade loaded with games such as skee-ball and NFL Throw—along with a batting cage, driving range, and human maze—make the park a year-round destination.
