My 4 year old daughter loves trains, and I figured this would be right up her alley, and it was! Great scenic ride to see the sights. They also said that they run the trolley for broncos game days to transport patrons.

This trolley ride is a good way to kill some time. The conductors are super friendly and knowledgeable. They give you an oral tour while you ride. It isn't honestly the prettiest ride and is very short (about 25 min round trip), but the commentary...More

You see little of significance except Mile High Stadium. Although it goes past and stops at the Aquarium so nice if you're visiting there. The young children love the ride. However, it's a waste of $5.00 for an adult. Yes they give a little history...More
