Escape Room

While you’re staying with us, head over to the Breckenridge Escape Room to test your mind. Locked inside a live-action escape room, you have 60 minutes to find the clues and solve the mystery to make your escape! Your team of up to 8 people, which may be whomever you choose, will test your problem-solving skills to escape the locked room. As you arrive you must choose a difficulty level (room). There are three rooms to choose from, all with different and exciting story lines.

Beginning at medium is the Hollywood Murder room. In this room, you are taken back to the 1950’s and wind up in a Hollywood actress’ dressing room and come to realize she’s been murdered. How? By whom? It is up to you to solve the riddle and find the clues.

Bump up to the hard level and find yourself inside the office of a secret agent, who has disappeared after being accused of a crime. Hidden inside the office is her location, which you and your team must find. But there’s a second challenge: someone placed a bomb inside her office and the timer is set for 60 minutes. Have no fear: if you have what it takes, there is a code for the bomb hidden in the room, as well.

Finally, you can step up to the very difficult room, which has only a 40 percent success rate. A nasty pirate, by the name of Captain Steelhook, has taken over your ship and locked you and your crew in the brig. With only 60 minutes until his return, you must find his treasure trove before he returns, or you’ll wind up swimming with the sharks.

So, do you think you have what it takes to make it out of a room? Perhaps all three? Head on over to the Breckenridge Escape Room, located at 233 South Ridge to find out. Discounted rates are available for owners. Check it out!

Train Rides

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to take a majestic train ride through the Rocky Mountains? Now is your chance to enjoy all the Rocky Mountains have to offer. Whether you decide to plan ahead or the day-of, train rides and tours are at your fingertips. Enjoy a scenic ride, add on a mine tour, or enjoy a relaxing dinner train ride.

Take a ride on the Leadville Colorado and Southern Railroad above the Arkansas River Valley – through pine forests, aspen groves and high alpine meadows. Bring your camera to try and capture a picture of an eagle. Children will even have the opportunity to meet the engineer!

Another option along the I-70 corridor is the Georgetown Loop Railroad. This train is less than one hour from Breckenridge and is a great way to take in stunning views. Enjoy a ride through Clear Creek Canyon, passing by remains of gold and silver mines; then, take a tour of the Lebanon Silver Mine! Travel 500 feet into a mine tunnel from the 1870’s and learn about the history of early-day mining. The pumpkin train is hosting rides in October and the Santa train is also right around the corner!

Fly Fishing

Take a relaxing day with family and friends, and spend some time on our local waters, loaded with Kokanee Salmon, Arctic Char, Brown Trout, and Rainbow Trout.

Whether you are just beginning or are more advanced, guides can cater to any level of fishing skill. Try either a full-day or a half-day trip with guides providing all the necessary equipment, including fishing rods, flies and transportation. The only thing you need to bring is a fishing license (required for ages 16 and older).

Book a trip with The Mountain Angler, located on Main Street Breckenridge and learn the art of angling, or improve your skills in some of the best fishing waters available. Being permitted on every stretch of water in a 50-mile radius means they will get you to the ideal spot on any given day.

If you are an experienced fisherman, Cutthroat Anglers, located in Silverthorne, are a wealth of information, providing water flow statistics, fly recommendations and helpful details about specific spots in the area.

Colorado has some of the best fishing in the nation, so make sure to get out and enjoy casting a line during your next stay in Breckenridge!
