Denver Inside and Out

admin May 22, 2011 0

Denver Inside and Out is a combination walking tour and scavenger hunt with a twist.  Participants will become accessories in Denver’s most famous robbery: the 1922 Denver Mint Robbery.  While helping to unravel one of Colorado’s most clever crimes, participants will learn about Denver and visit many of the city’s landmarks.

Along the route, participants will find themselves meeting many of the colorful characters involved in the heist. This is live street theater at its best and something that the whole family will enjoy together.

How does the tour work?  Participants follow clues that will point them to the next mystery location where they can find more clues.  During the hunt, guests will meet characters who will help them with clues or point them in the right direction.

Advance purchase of tickets is required to attend the event.  You can purchase your tickets online at .  If you wish, you can contact “Mr. Big” for availability at 303-3309871 or by email at [email protected] Tours are self guided and cover about 2 miles of the downtown Denver area.  Most tour participants can complete the tour in about 2 ½ to 3 hours.  Tours begin every 20 minutes starting at 10 am to 12 pm, but you do need reservations to participate.  Denver Inside and Out tours are free for kids ages 5 and under.  Tickets cost $35 for kids ages 6 to 11 and $40 for children and adults over age 12.

“Mr. Big” does have some rules that all guests must abide by: reservations must be made within 48 hours of the tour start time; each tour must have between 4 to 10 guests; and no changes are allowed 72 hours before tour time.  Since “Mr. Big” and his group are keeping a low profile, you will be contacted about a day before the start of your tour with information.  No worries–everything is really on the up and up!

Tours go on rain or shine.  Because of this, it is important to dress appropriately for the weather.  As Mr. Big says, “wait 15 minutes and you may like what you get”.  In other words, the weather changes often in Denver.  Complimentary drinks and snacks are provided on the tour, but you may want to bring along water or snacks for the younger members of your group.
