Overview

New Owners as of August 2015. ESTES ARK is an amazing must see experience: Noah's Attic which has many ark novelty items and books and activities. Our Rainbow Curve Raceway nostalgic slot car race track a flashback in time (There are rental fees that include the car and control racing 1/24 scale cars). Business was established in Estes Park, CO in 1984 offering an adventure in shopping and fun on 3 levels. Over 10,000 stuffed animals featuring collectibles, antiques and many stuffed animals of all species, nostalgic games, candy and just plain fun items. Animals range from miniature to life size and exotic to National Park species. Newly added Sluice Mining on the deck. You get to pan for gems, fossils and arrowheads to bring home in a bag. Sluicing is open only in spring, summer and fall when weather permits. We are a National award winning store. Stop in for a visit, we would love to meet you!

There are new owners, and they plan to have more variety in the future. For now, there are still a lot of stuffed animals. The basement has a neat slot car track. And, of course, it's neat to see the building from the outside, as...More

I thought this place was an attraction. It is a stuffed animal store in a building that looks like Noah's Ark. If you like stuffed animals and have 30 minutes to spare, take a look.

Return visit. Hadn't been here in several years. Mostly stuffed animals for sale but some games for kids too. The wooden ark building itself is amazing and worth a visit. (The store has been for sale for a couple of years.)
