Adventure Pass

The library's Adventure Pass program provides free access to explore cultural and recreational attractions in the community. Passes can be booked by anyone with a valid Westminster Public Library card, however, some reservations are age restricted. With the exception of the Colorado State Parks pass, all passes are virtual. When you book a reservation, you will receive an email confirmation that includes a link labeled "View Pass Info." The page that displays after you click/tap that link is what should be presented at the ticket desk. Please note: Some venues require a printed version of the pass, instead of a digital version. Please read the pass type description carefully.

Important changes to Pass Use

  • Registration processes vary by institution and additional registration steps for timed entry may be required. Please read the procedure for each attraction carefully, as library staff are available only during limited hours to provide phone support.
  • Not all attractions are available for booking at this time.
  • Reservations may be booked only two weeks in advance.
