Most people in Colorado have been to the Stanley Hotel at least once. If you have not been yet, cancel your weekend plans and make a trip.

Estes Park is one of my favorite places to visit in Colorado. Estes Park is gorgeous, filled with Elk, and is home to the hotel that inspired Stephen King's novel The Shining.

The Hollywood Reporter announced that the horror studio that made movies such as Get OutHalloween, Insidious, Paranormal Activity, and countless other movies will be creating a new exhibit at The Stanley Hotel.

The horror studio is Blumhouse, and it is one of the best studios in the world.

About the Exhibit and When It Will Open


This exciting exhibit will be in a 10,000-foot space. If you want to go soon, we have bad news for you, you're going to have to wait for a bit. According to The Denver Post, this exhibit will cost $400 million to curate perfectly. Governor Polis is even involved.

Yes, you read that right. $400 million.

I am ecstatic to see what this exhibit will entail. I will admit, I am not the biggest fan of horror movies. It is nothing against them, I am just a bit of a baby.

I will have to brush up on the Blumhouse catalog to enjoy the exhibit as much as possible. Thankfully, I have some time.

I have visited The Stanley Hotel in Estes Park. Below are some of the coolest sights I saw.

Stephen King stayed in this hotel in the 1970s, and he was inspired to write The Shining, one of the best horror novels of all time. Many believe The Stanley has paranormal activity.
