*I was given free tickets to the fun park but all opinions are my own. This past summer we got the chance to spend a few days in Breckenridge, CO and we had the best time. We stayed at Beaver Run resort, and you can check out this post about how much we loved it and we will stay there again.
Not only was the hotel amazing but the activity park in the heart of Breckenridge was a highlight. If you’re like us, it might be snowy outside but we are already making plans for this summer. Some of our friends came along on our trip and they all had so much fun they want to do it again this summer.
If your thinking about going to Breckenridge this summer you HAVE to check out their fun park. They had stuff for little kids, bigger kids and even adults! The men in our group really wanted to take the Segway tour.
Below I am going to give you a few tips on how to navigate the fun park to have the most fun possible.
Like most vacations, you want to sleep in and not be on a tight schedule but take it from me, getting your tickets early is a must! We got to the ticket booth around 10 and the line was insane! We had to wait about an hour and with lots of kids, they got antsy. If I would have known I would have gotten up early and grabbed them before they even woke up
I think you can even buy them online but they don’t have it set up yet since summer is still a few months away. So check this website closer to the date.
If you don’t live in Colorado like we do, you might not know the weather can change very rapidly. The picture below was taken at about 1 pm in the afternoon and as you can see, a storm was rolling in. We got to play at the park for about another hour but most of the activities can not get wet because they could be dangerous like the Alpine slide. My advice would be to get to the park when it opens in case the weather changes. I thought the staff did an excellent job in deciding when to shut down the park. Even though we wanted to stay, we were thankful they were looking out for us.
Also you can check the weather on the day you want to visit and if it seems bad, just try the next day!
There are so many things to do at the activity center. We used to only vacation in Colorado in the winter but after experiencing the park, we would go back during the summer for sure! There is so much to do, you have to start early to get it all in. Here is everything they offer:
Alpine Slide, Scenic chair lift, Gold Runner Coaster, Breck Flyer Zip Line (one for adults and one for kids), Mountain Biking, Guided hiking tours, Segway Tour, 4X4 tours, mini putt putt, Gemstone panning, Mineshaft Maze, Climbing wall, bungee trampoline, bounce house, duck races and ropes course.
It was so much fun hopping around from one thing to the other since we had the unlimited passes.
We stayed at Beaver Run and it was so nice. We could load up our whole crew and go everywhere together. They gave use the number to the shuttle hotline so anytime we needed to go somewhere or be picked up, the shuttle was at our service. Since we are from Colorado, we know the city pretty well. But this is a nice service if you are not familiar with the town.
And just so you are aware, you can park at the gondola parking lot and get your tickets for the fun park at the ticket center. And you can ride the gondola up and down for free. That was one of my kids favorite parts. We even saw a moose!
Once your done with the activity park, ride the gondola back down to the town. You can walk to the town easily from the gondola. The kids favorite store is this toy store below. It has every fun toy imaginable, a candy bar and a small play area in the back for smaller kids.
I would also suggest planning your trip around something fun the town has going on. For example we got to hit up the farmer’s market and they also had a music festival going on.

*I was given this item to facilitate my review but all opinions are my own.
I was sent a Zyliss Easy Pull Manual food processor and challenged to come up with a dip in honor of the Broncos making it to the AFC championship game this year! My husband loves football and I love cooking for football games so I whipped up 1 sweet and 1 savory dip for you today!
And the dips I made were so easy to make with the help of my Zyliss food processor. Sometimes the longest process of making dip is chopping up the ingredients. I wanted to see how it would chop a fruit and veggies and it did both with ease. I was afraid the fruit might just get mushy but it chopped it up perfectly! The blades chopped the food easily and evenly.
The first dip is my Colorado Sin dip…it’s so good it’s a sin! It’s so easy to make and everyone will love it. Plus it’s the Broncos colors with the orange dip and blue corn chips!
I used the handy Zyliss food processor to mince my onions then I added them to the mixture.
Add a few dashes of hot sauce then put into an oven safe bowl. Top with a little more hot sauce and cook for 1 hour at 350 degrees and serve with blue corn chips.
This is what you will need:
3/4 cup sugar (I used powered stevia)
4 tsp cinnamon
1 package blueberries
1 Tablespoon butter
Bake in a 350 degree oven for 10 minutes, then make the rest of our chips.
I used Stevia in the raw since we are trying to cut down on white sugar but you can use either.
Add about half the cantaloupe and blueberries and top with rest of cinnamon sugar. Then put more blueberries and cantaloupe on top. The cinnamon and sugar will merry with the fruit if you let it sit in the fridge. I left the fruit on top without the sugar but it was just for looks 😉
Now I left the blueberries whole for the picture, but I think they are better scooped with these chips cut up. You can also cut these up in your food processor just be very careful not to turn them to mush. You can also cut them in half.
