Things to Do in Denver in September, October 2017

Denver Skyline

Fall is a special time in the Mile High City. It’s a time of transition, a time where we post the last of our “Climbing Pike’s Peak” pictures, while deciding which slopes we should hit once some good powder comes down. Luckily, we also have a great variety of fall activities to fill the time!

Here at Funtober, we’ve compiled a list of some of the best activities for fall in Denver. After you conquer what’s here, you can still check out other farms for apple picking, corn mazes and pumpkin patches, other haunted houses, and other festivals and Oktoberfests, both in the Denver area and throughout the state!

City of the Dead & Asylum - Henderson, CO
Now one haunt with double the thrills.  Asylum and City of the Dead will not be open this fall.  City of the Dead & Asylum Haunted House is located at the Mile High Flea Market. They are moving to a new location for 2021.  Explore where the dead and lost souls roam. Enjoy your travels through City of the Dead, known for being a forgotten area filled with decay and filth. Few still inhabit this town, and those that do are hardly alive. Then, explore the grounds of The Asylum and its many recreational amenities to put your mind at ease during your stay. However, we must warn you that guests are advised to stay in-bounds of the facility, or risk being lost in the abyss of The Asylum’s most delusional patients.  They also have food, Pepsi products and serve Coors light products.

Creepy Walk in the Woods - Loveland, CO
Sorry folks but to keep everyone safe the owners have decided to not open this fall.  They hope to see everyone next year.  Hard to beat a scary walk through the local Savage Woods for fright fun.  This is not your average haunted house and it’s not another corn maze. In fact it’s not in a house or corn field at all. Just west of Loveland, at the base of Devil’s Backbone, you will find Savage Woods, home of the most vile, hideous creatures our world has ever seen. This once sacred land, now cursed with creatures so haunting they could never be contained indoors. These Woods are so horrid that our own minions (staff) won’t enter.  It’s a terrifying, unguided exploration deep in to the Woods to experience the immoral degenerates, native only to the Savage Woods.  Some will live to tell the tale, some will never be seen again, some will be forever changed…
