Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    The drive up was fun with plenty of wildlife to gawk at. The top is difficult to describe except to say that the views are spectacular.

    Highest paved highway in North America- so you gotta go on it! Wonderful scenic sights with lots of pull off so you can go at your own pace. Echo lake is a wonderful sight on this byway as well. Take your time and enjoy the ride!!

    We did the Luminova Lights at Elitch Gardens on a trip to Denver. It was fun but not worth what we paid honestly. We spent about an hour there walking around looking at the lights. Some displays were really cool but some was repetitive. We got hot chocolates and hot ciders that were good, but definitely SKIP the Bavarian pretzel—it was $10 for a disgusting, old hard pretzel. Ended up taking one bite and threw it away. Was worth one time to see what it was all about but wouldn’t go back.

    We had a blast! The story was creative and unexpected. There were hidden panels and…well, I’d better not give it away. 😉 Ando was awesome! She was so helpful and made the storyline a lot of fun. My son (15) wanted to go back the next day and try another room. The price for a private room was excellent! Definitely recommend!!

    So much fun! Very nice axe throwing facility. Our coach spent a lot of time with us showing us techniques and critiquing our throws. He taught us different games we could play and we had a blast! They had a nice selection of beer and the space was clean and large. Highly recommend!

    Myself and my 3 kids (14,12,9) have done over 30 escape rooms and this was one of our favorites. There were mini puzzles (unique to this company) as well as the room puzzles. They were just different enough that we hadn't seen them before and kept everyone thinking. Love the ambiance of the house and Lucas was super friendly! Will definitely be back and would recommend to anyone.

    Oxotic is a great time if you are someone who likes to drive high performance cars. Its really fun to actually drive the car as opposed to just take it on a few laps around a track. Everyone there takes great care of you and you get to have a first class experience.

    We had 15 people from our company and vendors. It was well organized and each person got a practice lap and two races. The top 10 people then had a 12 lap race for the championship. We had a private room and catered in food. They also offer food in their restaurant and there are many beer, wine and liquor choices.

    Kind driver, clean car, on time. Very careful with our suitcases and supplies, offered water and chargers, and a comfy safe drive! Good advice on the airport itself and the area as well.

    We had such a great time with Sid and Campbell doing the zipline course. They were funny, patient, and definitely made you feel safe. We had a large group but they kept things moving without feeling rushed. We had Aldon (Taldon) for rafting. He was sooo knowledgeable about the area and such a happy person to be around. The scenery was beautiful and the class 3’s were super fun!
