all the natural beauty and things to do outside like camping, hiking,
fishing, and skiing it is a wonder locals have any time left to enjoy
man made attractions in the region. However, there are a host of national
and local companies working hard to make sure you can have a good time
in this area. The state fair is held annually in Pueblo with a carnival
and several concerts spanning almost a week. Several theme and water parks
are poised with roller coasters, ferris wheels, and water slides at the
ready. And there are a host of other shows, rodeos, concerts, and the
like that don't make this short list. We have chosen to show you some
of the Roller Coasters and other attraction parks to take the kids for
a Coney Island style time.
Until recently, Elitch Gardens was located on 38th street and was one
of the original amusement parks in the region. It was recently aquired
by the Six Flags entertainment group. The new owners have relocated the
park downtown adjacent to the new Pepsi Center and across Interstate 25
from the new Invesco Field at Mile High Stadium. The transformation came
complete with larger than life rides and a host of new attractions. The
heritage hasn't been completely lost, with impressive gardens similar
to their progenitors still dotting the landscape.
