What's Really Going On At The Denver Airport?

Denver International Airport in Colorado is weird. DIA (as locals know it) has gained fame due to its unique interior and some ominous donations, but mainly because of the magnitude of conspiracy theories surrounding it. Opened on February 28, 1995, this airport is the second largest in the world with a runway length of 16,000 feet. It is also the largest employer in the state of Colorado and thanks to its 35,000 employees, it has serviced 215 destinations. This makes DIA one of the busiest airports in North America.

Aside from its grand proportions, Denver International is certainly not your typical airport. Something that many people have not been shy in pointing out questionable funding during its construction. While some believe this is made up of New World Order individuals, others find nothing out of the ordinary, especially since large construction projects involve varying state, local and federal donations.The 26-year-old building screams eccentricity with its red-eyed cerulean mustang sculpture (also known as Blucifer) and odd expressions gargoyles protecting the baggage claim. Instead of diverting conspiracy theories, former CEO Kim Day, has decided to have fun by stating there may or may not be aliens, lizards and the 1% meeting in those abandoned tunnels below. DIA has dozens of theories in its wake, spanning from underground bunkers to apocalyptic artwork, but of all the reasonable and irrational suspicions, here are our favorite five:

The airport was built by the New World Order with ties to Nazism.

  • The theory even goes so far as to say that the airport’s runways are built to resemble a swastika from above.

  • Airport’s dedication marker credits an organization called The New World Airport Commission for building it.

  • People have also noted “strange” markings on buildings, which are believed to be connected with the New World Order, as well. In reality, many “mysterious” building markings are actually references to the Navajo language or periodic table of elements

The Giant Blue Horse Sculpture Is a Nod to the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse

  • People point to the statues glowing red eyes as a nod to the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse, though the artist once said that the red color was in honor of the “wild” spirit of the American West.

It Contains the Illuminati Headquarters

  • This theory may have stemmed from a time capsule buried on the property, which bears symbols from the FreeMasons, which are “linked” to the Illuminati.

  • One of the main reasons why this conspiracy theory has so much staying power is because the airport was much more expensive than originally projected. Conspiracy theorists point to Illuminati money, which some believe was used to finish DIA’s construction in exchange for the secret society using the property

  • Rumors say that the first few buildings on the property were not built properly, but instead of demolishing them, the airport simply buried them and built more buildings on top, giving the Illuminati its own “underground lair.”

Its Underground Tunnels Have Bunkers

  • Rumors surrounding the apocalypse are probably some of the biggest conspiracy theories about the airport. Yes, there are underground tunnels in the airport, including a train that runs between concourses and a defunct automated baggage system

  • Tunnels also contain underground bunkers (possibly built by Lizard People or aliens) that will serve as a safe place for the world’s elite during the apocalypse

  • Other theories say that the tunnels directly lead to the North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD), which is located only about 100 miles south of the airport, in Colorado Springs

The Artwork Provides Clues About the End of the World

  • Some of these eerie artworks included murals by artist Leo Tanguma, which some believe have alleged Nazi imagery in the murals as proof that the airport is somehow linked to a fascist secret society

  • Others are fixated on the random gargoyle statues that seem to watch over the airport. While the gargoyles may seem a little suspicious, gargoyles have been used throughout the centuries in architecture as a totem to “ward off” evil spirits and protect the buildings. Many of the gargoyles are placed at baggage claim to protect travelers’ luggage,

This is just the tip of the iceberg: even wilder conspiracy theories like possession through demons, home of lizard people, and alien invasions frequent this airport.
