The oddities of Estes Park include the world-famous Stanley Hotel and Estes Ark. The Stanley Hotel was the inspiration behind the movie "The Shining". The Stanley Hotel was built in 1909 and has a history of being haunted. The next oddity you should see in Estes Park on your road trip is Estes Ark, the antique store shaped like a boat. Estes Ark is 100 feet long and 50 feet wide and looks just like Noah's Ark.
