I loved the Fun House at Lakeside, wasn't scary to me at all. Especially liked the "monkey cage" inside that everyone grabbed the center pole and then it spun around and threw you against the sides. Best view of Denver from Lookout Mtn was inside of Sam's with a pitcher of beer in your hand. The drive down the hill, not so much fun.

Going to Casa Bonita was punishment. Had friends working there when it opened. Loved to tell me about spitting in food and getting groped in the grotto. I remember when it did snow and the snow would be dirty from cinders instead of Magnesium Chloride and sand. Six to eight inches was just "oh, it snowed." Now one inch is news for days. Went to concerts, baseball and football games in Bears stadium. Chubby's wasn't built yet.

I was in Denver 2 years ago and saw this. Lol. Awesome place to visit. I'm from Nova Scotia. I got to see the Broncos whip the 49ers and saw Manning beat the all time TD record. I hope to return in the near future

Now living in Europe this brought nostalgia to my heart and tears to my eyes having grown up in Denver in the 60s through the 80s. Corny but true. \U0001f602
