MINI Family Weekend: Drive out loud

Summer is quickly coming to an end and the kids are getting ready to head back to school. So why not take your MINI out with your family and enjoy one last ‘Drive Out Loud’ weekend?

Do your kids want to see a tiger up close? What about run through a 5,000 sq. ft. warehouse while playing laser tag? If they’re older, why not have them swim with some sharks?

Get ready for an adventurous weekend, because here’s our guide to the best weekend your kids will every have. Pack some snacks, bring your camera, and enjoy one last school-free weekend with the family.

The Wild Animal Sanctuary

Sure, Colorado has the Denver Zoo, but how about seeing a tiger so up close that even your jaw will drop? Set on 720 acres of rolling grassland in Keenesburg, CO, The Wild Animal Sanctuary is a safe haven for large predators like tigers, bears and wolves who have been mistreated, abused and found neglected. A large walkway takes you up and over some of the habitants of the sanctuary to a 4,000 sq. ft. observation deck. By visiting The Wild Animal Sanctuary, you’re helping save the lives of these animals and you can also learn where they came from, what they like to eat, and see them play.

Loveland Laser Tag

Sometimes your kids just need to tire themselves out by running through 5,000 sq. ft. of darkness, an Egyptian room, and a maze. Loveland Laser tag let’s your kids be kids, and it’s also fun for adults. The two-level facility is filled with fog, lasers, and flashing lights. It’s basically an interactive haunted house that’s less scary and your kids and the ones chasing you instead of a chainsaw man. Loveland Laser Tag also has a laser maze, a climbing wall, and an arcade. Go have some fun.

Downtown Aquarium

Alright, so you might not have a huge drive ahead of you for this adventure, but this is one of our favorites. Suit up in a wetsuit, put your snorkel on, and get ready to swim with a nurse shark, giant groupers, and rays. And yes, moms, it’s safe. Kids (and adults) six years old and up can jump in the water and be seen by Aquarium visitors as they explore the “Under the Sea” exhibit.
