Have Fun While Learning History!

Here at Denver Terrors, we strive to give your students a frighteningly great time with us while also giving them some valuable historical information.
All of our stories are based on historical fact and have been thoroughly researched. Each personal account has been verified and scrutinized before use on our walking tours, and although names may have been changed, they are based on real people who lived here.

Students will be enthralled by the stories their guide relate as they tell the horrid histories that Denver has built up over the years. The legacy of exploration and invention that pervades Denver are all brought alive by memorable ghost stories. The Frontier adventures that ended in disaster and the tales of early civic life in the Mile High City.

The tour brings students to the actual sites of the hauntings, but it doesn’t stop there. Through engaging, incredible stories, we show them a side of these places that isn’t in their textbooks. Being there helps lodge history in young minds and increases recall.

For educators, the following section has answers to some frequently asked questions about our tour.

If you have any other questions, comments, or concerns about the nature of our tours, please feel free to contact us.

 

Frequently Asked Questions

 

“Denver Terrors” sounds unsettling. Is your tour appropriate for all students?

Don’t let the spooky name fool you: our tour is appropriate for students of all ages, grade levels, and backgrounds. We can accommodate K-12 students and college groups alike.

 

How can a ghost tour also be good for early grades?

As we’re well aware of our tour’s potentially frightening nature, we can adjust what stories we tell, and in what detail, for groups of smaller children.

We want your students to enjoy our tour as much as we enjoy it—not be so scared that they can’t focus.

 

What’s the educational value of this tour?

Unlike the stereotypical ghost tour, our tour isn’t all scare and no substance.

We cover, in detail, the historical background of every location we visit. In the interest of accuracy, the stories on our tour are also backed by research. We strive to balance educational content with entertainment—we don’t tell merely tall tales, but fact-based accounts.

During tours, our guides provide the right balance between learning and excitement. They don’t lecture, nor do they over-act.

At Denver Terrors, we share your passion for your students’ education. We want your students to leave our tour having had a fun and memorable time, having learned more about the history of Colorado’s capital and knowing more about the characters from our history in the process.

 

What about the actual stories? Is there any disturbing subject matter?

Please rest assured: regarding content, our tour does not cover any material more sensitive, upsetting, or disturbing than what’s already discussed in most history textbooks. We do not go to great lengths to sensationalize the history of the sites we visit; it’s dramatic enough as it is.
