Denver Airport Conspiracy Theories

Denver Airport Conspiracy Theories

Despite being the country's sixth most trafficked airport, DIA is shrouded with mystery and intrigue. Since opening in 1995, a growing list of conspiracy theories have emerged surrounding Denver Airport's construction, artwork, and association with the Freemasons. Certain parties believe that secret messages from the Illuminati fill the concourses and that a series of secret bunkers run beneath Denver International Airport. Additionally, some conspiracy theories suggest that DIA's iconic murals contain enigmatic imagery of the New World Order's takeover.

Do any of these conspiracy theories hold true? That's for you to decide. Check out this fantastic video to differentiate fact from fiction at Denver International Airport!

Denver Airport Horse

While various conspiracy theories surround Denver International Airport, the cryptic horse statue just outside of DIA garners the most intrigue and attention. Designed by artist Luis Jimenez, the 32-foot sculpture depicts a blue mustang with demonic red eyes, standing on its hind legs. Affectionately known as Blucifer, the mysterious equine was erected in 2006 and is widely regarded as an ominous omen on the DIA tarmac. As you arrive at Denver Airport, take a look at (or a selfie with) the allegedly evil horse to see what the buzz is all about!
