Steamboat Springs attraction to have bumper boats, climbing wall


STEAMBOAT SPRINGS After meeting with the Planning Commission Thursday, Greg Gallavan realized he may not have needed a conceptual review to get bumper boats and a climbing wall approved for Amaze’n Steamboat.

The Planning Commission had few concerns with the proposed development, which is off of U.S. 40 behind the Steamboat Springs Chamber Resort Association building.

Gallavan wants to place a 3-foot-deep bumper pool next to the human maze at the fun park and possibly add a 24-foot climbing wall with an automatic belaying system. The fun park draws 15,000 to 20,000 guests each summer with a human maze and an 18-hole miniature golf course, according to Gallavan.

The bumper boats, if the permit is approved, should be in place by next summer. Planning staff brought up issues of child safety in regards to Fish Creek, which runs about 40 or 50 feet from the fun park.
