Spark City Bus Tour

he Spark City Bus is a beautiful 40-foot school bus that has been converted into a mobile children's museum! Three parts of the "city" are showcased on the bus-- the farm/orchard, the grocery market, and the cafe. Children can pick fruits and vegetables at the farm, sell them to the market, and prepare and serve meals in the kitchen and cafe. This act of role-playing teaches young children valuable social and emotional skills, critical thinking and problem-solving skills, gross and fine motor skills, science, math and art skills, and most importantly-- instills a lifelong love of learning through play.

Corn Maze at the Denver Botanic Gardens!

Wind your way through the corn and help Farmer Green find his lost animals. Life-size animal cutouts are hidden throughout the maze for fun photo opportunities. The maze can be viewed from two 15-foot tall illuminated bridges. Visitors under the age of 10 can explore the mini-maze. Tickets include one hayride, barrel train ride (for children 12 and under) and unlimited jumping on a giant pillow. Pony rides and hamster balls are available for an additional fee. An array of food vendors sell favorite fall foods such as funnel cakes, hotdogs, freshly squeezed lemonade and kettle corn.
