420-Friendly Halloween Events in Colorado Springs (2020)
This year's holiday season is quite a bit different than ever before due to the prevalence of COVID-19 across the state. While lots of events have been changed or canceled altogether, there are still several Halloween events happening in and around Colorado Springs this year. If you're looking for a few local events to check out while you get into the spooky season spirit with your favorite cannabis products, check out these local 420-friendly events.
Hellscream Haunted House - Hancock Ave
There is no better time to enjoy a high dose of edibles than 20 minutes before checking out a new haunted house. Colorado Springs has been home to Hellscream for over 11 years. This haunted house has earned countless awards and been named one of America's best haunted houses thanks to its fully custom movie-quality special effects hand-curated by film, TV, and SFX professionals. This multi-story, multi-attraction haunted house features lots of live actors, escape rooms, and more to help you wet your horror whistle. Enjoy a good smoke sesh before you go for best results. Hellscream is open until November 1st. Learn more or purchase tickets here.
Boo at the Zoo - Cheyenne Mountain Zoo
The zoo is always a magical experience on its own, but it can easily be elevated into a festive spooky event when coupled with cannabis. Edibles and terp pens are a great way to medicate before checking out Boo at the Zoo, either alone, with friends, or with your family. Boo at the Zoo takes place at Cheyenne Mountain Zoo on the weekends of 10/23-25 and 10/30-31 between the hours of 3:40 and 8:30 PM with the last admission at 7:20 PM each night. The event offers a handful of treat stations, live animal exhibits, a haunted house, and a lighted pumpkin patch, making it an excellent choice for local Halloween fun for people of all ages. Tickets must be purchased online though, so check it out here.
Ghouls and Stools - Bear Creek Dog Park
If haunted houses and scary movies aren't really your thing, you may have a better time enjoying some edibles or smoking some Epic Remedy flower and heading to the dog park for a doggy costume contest and clean up to help keep our pets safe and our outdoor spaces clean. Bring your pups to the park in their best costumes for the chance to take home the grand prize in categories like best TV/movie costume, scariest costume, most original costume, and best matching costumes. Bring your kids for the golden stool treasure hunt. The event takes place on Halloween from 9 to 11 AM, making this a great event for families. Learn more here.
Haunted Mines - Palmer Park blvd
If you're in for a real scare and a one of a kind local mystery, check out the Haunted Mines found at Palmer Park and Academy. For over 10 years, Haunted Mines has been attracting guests from all over the country to experience this unique attraction and incredible Halloween performers. The mines used to be a non-profit and still continue to donate most of their proceeds to charities across the pike's peak region. Last year they took a break to redesign their haunted house, and this year they're back with over 28k square feet of terror for you to explore, including private tours, a theater, and several escape rooms. You'll definitely want to be on a high dose of edibles or capsules for this one. Bring your friends for an added scare factor. The Haunted Mines are open until November 1st.
