What to expect

Coronavirus in Colorado Springs

2020 changed everything.  The pandemic was unprecedented and we all pivoted to make the best of a bad situation.  Anybody else sick to death of those three words?  Us too!  

There are some words however that we’re not quite over.  Namely social distancing, limited capacity and masks. We’ve come a very long way from where we were in 2020, but unfortunately we’re not quite ready to go back to business as usual.  

Masks are still required in public indoor spaces if you have not been vaccinated.  Most public transportation will require a mask regardless of vaccination status

Above you’ll find all the info you need to make sure you don’t miss out on any of the fun.  We’ll keep mask and reservation requirements updated, along with who’s open, and if we have to, who’s closed.


Other safety precautions to keep in mind:


Some of our attractions will be gathering contact info from a designated person for each group. That contact info will be saved for up to 15 days.
Many attractions are encouraging people to buy tickets ahead of time so there’s less interaction at the front gate. You can find tickets for many of them here: Online Tickets


One of the easiest ways you can help slow the spread of COVID-19 is right in your pocket! CO Exposure Notifications is a free and voluntary service available on both Google and Apple devices that can notify you of possible exposure. Go to the State’s website for more info. Exposure Notifications


Expect to see hand sanitizer and even portable hand washing stations all over the place. Wash them early, wash them often. It’s the simplest thing you can do to keep us all happy and healthy.


Expect to keep some distance between your group and others nearby. A minimum of 6 feet is required between social groups (families or small groups of people who regularly socialize with each other.) All of our attractions are at a limited capacity this year to help with social distancing. Please help them out with a little patience and some space between you and your fellow travelers.
