Fort Collins seems like a normal town. At first glance you might not think that there is all that many things to do in Fort Collins or its neighboring cities like Loveland or Greeley.
However that is simply untrue!
There is a lot of things to do in all of these towns!
From going out with your friends to see the Colorado Ice Indoor Football games to just grabbing a beer at Washington’s bar then taking a stroll through Old town there are a lot of things to do in Fort Collins and its surrounding cities.
I think one of the most fun things to do in Fort Collins is to take a little trip down the highway to go and see the Colorado Ice Indoor Football games. The season is just getting started right now and most of the games are actually on the weekends so you can go to the game, grab some Dippin’ Dots and head in for an afternoon of football and fun!
The games themselves are fast paced and fun to watch, this last weekend the Colorado Ice took on the Pueblo Steel is a preseason match up. It was a blast watching the Ice dominate the Steel! The Colorado Ice won the game 100-7…
They simply destroyed the Pueblo Steel!
Another great thing about this particular thing to do in Fort Collins is that there are a ton of activities and interaction for your kids.
When you go to an NFL game there isn’t a chance of getting down on the field with the players and getting to meet them. That is not the case with Colorado Ice Indoor Football! After every game the kids can go down onto the field and meet the players and get autographs.
There are NFL scouts at these games too, so it is possible that you could get an up and coming stars autograph while you are out for your afternoon with the kids!
There are cool games for adults and kids alike during the short periods where the players actually take a break. Things like eating contests and a game where the crowd directs someone to win a prize.
The event coordinators put a blindfold on a lady and she was supposed to find the Perkins banner that was laying on the field.
The crowd was told to direct her by yelling when she was going in the right direction and getting quiet when she was headed away from the banner, as she was wondering around she found that all she needed to do was point in a direction and if she pointed in the right direction the crowd went wild and if she was pointing in the wrong direction then the crowd got quite.
She won the Perkins Gift certificate!
Every ball that goes into the crowd is given to the person who catches it. This happens a lot more when the Colorado Ice Indoor football team plays than when you’re at an NFL game.
The balls are kicked or thrown into the crowd on almost every play and there are about 75 balls or so given away every game!
The mascot is continually playing with the crowd and the children.
The whole experience is one that should not be passed up!
Keep in mind that the Colorado Ice Indoor football team is a professional football team too. You’re not going out to see a bunch of amateurs running around a field. These guys are being watched by the NFL scouts for a reason…They’re good!
Now I am sure that you’re thinking, “This all sounds good but how much does it cost to go to the games?” The games are super inexpensive. There is a range of prices starting at ten dollars a seat for a single game or as little as seventy dollars per seat for the entire season!
The season tickets include:
1. The 2014 Preseason Game and 7 Regular Season Home Games.
2. Seating preference at your chosen ticket level.
3. Season Ticket Holder Preseason Party – Tickets will be issued at this event.
4. Season Ticket Holder Gift Per Seat.
5. First right of refusal for 2014 Post Season Tickets.
6. First right of refusal for 2015 Season Tickets.
Sure there are a lot of different things to do in Fort Collins but none of them are as interactive or as fun as continuing your NFL football craze right into the IFL season. I mean this will actually let you watch football all year around and spend quality time with your kids!
You can start right at the beginning of the season watching the Colorado Ice Indoor Football team take on the Sioux Falls Storm, watch all of the games and finish by watching the IFL version of the Super Bowl!
