Colorado’s Tiny Town and Railway is Reopen to the Public
After being forced to close its gates for 20 months, Colorado's Tiny Town is back open to visitors for the 2021 summer season.
Located in Morrison, the small-scale set-up features a miniature town that's complete with realistic businesses and residences. Tiny Town has grown a lot over the years and now includes more than 90 buildings. There's also a railroad track with five train engines that tote guests around the park, plus takes people to areas that are not accessible by any other way.
The attraction has faced several hardships throughout its 106-year history. Because it runs on volunteers and seasonal employees only, the business was ineligible to receive any government assistance during the recent pandemic. Fortunately, Tiny Town was able to raise more than $30,000 in donations, which greatly helped to pay the bills in 2020. Besides being closed during the COVID-19 outbreak, the park also survived the Spanish Flu pandemic in 1918. Before that, multiple floods and a disastrous fire damaged portions of the property. Throughout the despair, much restoration has taken place during the park's century-long existence, to make it into the booming attraction it is today.
Tiny Town is open 7 days a week, through Labor Day (September 6).
Ticket prices are $5 for adults, $4 for kids between the ages of 2 to 12-years-old, and free for kids under the age of two. Train rides are an additional $3. Park hours are 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. For more information, visit https://www.tinytownrailroad.com/.
