^ I did hit up Rock Bottom in Downtown Denver and had their chocolate beer, quite tasty!
As far as getting the other credits, honestly I could have done everything in one day if I just whored it out. With Elitch closing at 9pm and Lakeside closing at 11pm, it would have been totally doable. Basically had I known then what I know now I would start out at Santa's Workshop at the 10am opening, 90 minutes max if you ride the flats and walk around, next I would hit up the flea market, in and out in less than 30 minutes, quick drive the Heritage Square, maybe 30 minutes for both coasters and another 30 for the Alpine Slide. At that point, it should be about 4pm, hit Elitch for 4 hours, quick 10 minute drive to Lakeside and close out the night.
I actually really liked Lakeside, the nostalgia, the ride signs, it all just fit. I hope they don't change.
Next time I'm in town, and there will be a next time, I'll hit up the Fort Collins Tour!
