  • I used to love this place. We brought our daughter here when she was little to enjoy the shops and restaurants and rides. We also have some wonderful memories of great car shows here. So sad to see it...  read more »
  • Well Heritage Square is not what it used to be. The only thing left are carnival rides best suited for kids. The grounds were neat and clean. There is one fast food type lunch stand with several choic...  read more »
  • A few rides, a carousel and some cotton candy is all that is left. Even the Alpine Slide is being torn down. Not much to see or do there now. Hopefully, another attraction will eventually take its pla...  read more »
  • Took my son and his friends their for his birthday. The bathrooms have been re-done and are very nice. A misnomer is that the park is closing. It is actually leased through 2039. The amusement park will staying open but the Alpine Slide is already closed. I definitely recommend this for kids of all ages. Even my four year old had a blast.
  • Only amusement park and a cafe are open now. Train, shops, and theatre are closed forever. Rides are fine for five year old and younger. Most rides would be too mundane for older folks, except: go carts, small zip line, paddle boats, mini golf, Ferris wheel (about 40 feet tall). Best deal is $20 per kid for unlimited rides ($25 if you also want to include the go carts). Rides for kids under 48 inches require only one paying person (an adult). 19 tickets cost twenty dollars, and most normal rides cost three tickets. Avoid the arcade unless it's extremely hot and you need shade and flashing lights for young kiddos.
  • A lot of deconstruction around the park, buildings and old rides are being torn down. Not a lot of shade for hot sunny days. Pond for paddle and bumper boats smells bad. The rides were fun for the kids, geared for younger children, under 10. There's an all day pass so they can ride all rides over and over, but not a large selection of rides. You can bring your own water, etc.
  • This has to be one of the worst amusement parks I've ever been to! Not only have they torn down the best parts but the lines for the rides are ridiculous. But that wasn't even the worst part, the worst part of this experience was having the rude little b$%ches that do the horse back riding tell me 10 and 8 year old nieces they were too fat to ride the pony's!! I was told there was an 80 lb weight limit, which I completey understand but what I don't get is a. Why there are no signs what so ever posted about a weight limit (mind you they did have a full grown horse as well as pony's) b. Why I saw SEVERAL children that were definitely over 80 lbs riding both the ponys and the horse and c. Why the hell the dumb little twit felt the need to say my nieces were too big RIGHT IN FRONT OF THEM!!!! I just had to explain to a crying 8 year old that she is not too fat to ride horses ( a dream of hers) thanks a lot!!
  • Just went by today, 11 July 2016, to see if we could ride the Alpine Slide. It was only 5:10 PM and was informed by a staff member that they were closing in 20 minutes, which we believed was still enough time to ride the slide. But were then told that the slide is closed permanently. Train is shut down as well. Only a few of the kiddie rides are left open among the deconstruction of this once quaint theme park that has been in and out of operation since 1957. It was designed by the same people that created Disneyland, hence the authentic looking Victorian building that are now being dismantled. So unless you want to take some young ones on a couple of kiddie rides, or see the sad remnants of a once Denver mainstay avoid going. It's just too sad.
