The Broadmoor Adds Restaurant and "Soaring Adventure"
THE BROADMOOR SEVEN FALLS, RESTAURANT 1858 AND THE BROADMOOR SOARING ADVENTURE
Resort Restores Natural Beauty of Historic Attraction; Adds Restaurant and “Soaring Adventure”
From the time it opened to the public in 1873, people have always been attracted the natural beauty and wonder of Seven Falls. Now, The Broadmoor
, a Forbes Five-Star, AAA Five-Diamond resort, is pleased to announce the re-opening on August 13, 2015 of a new experience at this storied site: a newly restored park, including not only the sights and sounds of the falls; Restaurant 1858, a unique dining experience, and The Broadmoor Soaring Adventure, a series of two unique zip-line courses situated on 1,400 acres adjacent to the park.
Known as “Colorado’s Grandest Mile of Scenery,” Seven Falls
is one of the oldest attractions in the Pikes Peak Region and is the only one in Colorado to make National Geographic’s list of international waterfalls. The historic falls cascade 181 feet and are nestled at the end of a spectacular 1,250 foot natural box canyon.
The delicate nature of the ecosystem at Seven Falls was severely damaged by flooding in September 2013 and forced the closure of this popular attraction. In order to rebuild the integrity of the park’s environment, Seven Falls is now a vehicle-free zone, except for continuous an on-site park shuttle for those choosing not to walk its wondrous canyon floor.
At the base of the falls, guests can now enjoy traditional Colorado fare at Restaurant 1858, honoring the start of the Pikes Peak Gold Rush. The restaurant features a menu that showcases traditional Rocky Mountain flavors and takes its cue from the heritage of the Old West, blending low-country style with early frontier cooking. The menu’s wide array of German, French, and Creole cuisines is inspired by the immigrants who traveled west to seek their fortunes in the gold rush, making Restaurant 1858 the culinary melting pot of Cheyenne Canyon.
Open for lunch and dinner, Restaurant 1858 offers a menu that changes seasonally and features many local Colorado growers and ranchers, including Broadmoor Farms, Bio Herbs and More, and others. All seafood featured on the menu is sustainable, while Colorado-raised meat is served whenever possible.
