10 Reasons Why Denver International Airport is Creepy

An airport is a site where you can witness large groups of people, especially if it's an international airport, and you're sure to see a diverse range of races, nations, and social classes. Something sinister would be the last thing we'd expect to happen in an airport. The Denver International Airport, on the other hand, has been the center of some obscene Conspiracy Theories, and here are 10 Reasons Why Denver International Airport is Creepy:


The view of the airport from orbit, according to conspiracy theorists, is reminiscent of World War II and one of history's most horrific organizations, the Nazi party, who slaughtered millions of people based on their religious views.

Although the airport does have a swastika-like structure with multiple arms connecting to the main body, officials say the design is simply practical for bringing traffic into a busy airport with planes entering from all directions. It's also worth noting that the swastika has been utilized for thousands of years before Adolf Hitler adopted it.

The swastika has been a sign of good fortune and well-being for at least five millennia. For less than a century, it has been associated with negative connotations.


Some of the murals painted on the walls in the baggage claim area contain symbols that can be interpreted as promoting or showing a "new world order." 

The airport's public art collection contains a variety of strange works of art. Some of these frightening artworks included murals by artist Leo Tanguma, which some say contain purported Nazi imagery as proof that the airport is somehow related to a fascist secret society, according to the Denver Post. According to the Denver Post, Tanhuma's paintings are about international peace and a healthy environment.

Despite their positive sentiments, we must agree that the murals are somewhat frightening to look at. Others are enthralled by the haphazard gargoyle statues that seem to guard the airport. While the gargoyles may appear ominous, they have been utilized in architecture as a totem to "fend off" evil spirits and safeguard the buildings for generations. According to Mental Floss, several of the gargoyles are put near baggage claims to protect tourists' luggage.

3.Apocalyptic Artwork

The two modest gargoyles atop columns in the east and west baggage claim areas may be easy to notice in comparison to Tanguma's big, colorful paintings and Sweetman's large-scale pictures. Gargoyles have long been used to protect people within buildings from evil spirits, and DEN's pair, together known as "Notre Denver," is no exception. They are there to assist in the safe arrival of luggage, and they are grinning down on arriving passengers.

Despite the fact that gargoyles have been a feature of church construction for decades — most famously on the Cathedral of Notre-Dame in Paris, for which DEN's gargoyles are named – some tourists have misinterpreted the duo as malevolent harbingers rather than heroic guards.


This is a really weird poem. It seems to suggest people will be better off if they shut their eyes and pretend they don’t see what’s happening around them:

5.Time Capsule

The time capsule at the airport contains proof that the New World Order (NWO) was engaged in the construction of the airport. The time capsule was stamped with a series of letters and symbols when it was constructed. The New World Airport Commission was one of the recipients of such letters. Many people believe that organization — which does not exist — is a reference to the New World Order, a government that will control humanity after a catastrophic calamity.

The major flaw in this scenario is that the New World Airport Commission existed at the time the capsule was inserted in 1994. As in Denver, the civic organization assisted in the planning of celebrations to celebrate the inauguration of airports.

6.Mansory Symbols

The presence of Masonic symbols on the same time capsule proves the Illuminati's involvement. The Illuminati is plainly collaborating with the New World Order, and the kingdom's keys are hidden in the Denver International Airport time capsule. The ruler and compass, which are symbols of the Free Masons, are clearly stamped on the capsule.

Officials at the airport said the fraternal group is frequently involved in the construction of public buildings and is still functioning today. They even claim that the group built the time capsule. Until the capsule is opened, the mystery may remain unanswered.

7.Horse Statue

Without mentioning DEN's most controversial and historic piece of art, no list of Denver International Airport legends would be complete. The 32-foot-tall sculpture of a blue horse rearing up on its hind legs over Pea Boulevard is officially known as "Mustang," but most Denverites refer to him by his demonic-sounding moniker, Blucifer. Blucifer is already a terrifying sight, with his crimson, blazing eyes and a mane that resembles Medusa's snakes more than any horse's hair we've seen, but his backstory adds an extra depth of interest.

“Mustang,” a mural by artist Luis Jiménez, was commissioned in the mid-1990s and was influenced by the vibrant colors and themes of renowned Mexican muralists such as Diego Rivera and José Clemente Orozco. Jiménez grew up working in his father's sign shop and went on to become well-known for his giant fiberglass sculptures throughout his 30 years as an artist. Sadly, “Mustang” was to be his final film. Jiménez was murdered in an accident in his New Mexico studio in June 2006, after a piece of the sculpture collapsed and severed an artery in his leg. He had been working on the artwork for nearly a decade. Jimenez's children finished the sculpture, which was unveiled in February 2008.

Blucifer has been a target for myth tellers since his erection, with many claiming that he is cursed due to his terrible background and menacing appearance. Some even believe that his flashing red eyes signify one of the steeds that the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse would ride, despite Jiménez's insistence that they were just meant to commemorate the wild spirit of the West.

8. "Au Ag" in Great Hall Tiles

The "Au Ag" tiles in the Great Hall represent a virus known as the Australia antigen, which is thought to have the potential to wipe out the entire world's population. A mining cart is engraved into a tile hidden at the airport. There are four letters in the mining cart that conspiracy theorists claim aren't all that innocent. The elements gold and silver are usually represented by the letters "Au Ag."

9. Underground tunnels

The complex is connected to the Cheyenne Mountain Air Force Station by underground tunnels. A massive underground tunnel system is usually proposed as a credible theory for the large 33,000-acre airport. Although there are tunnels beneath the airport, a 90-mile tunnel connecting the airport and the military base is doubtful. Of course, officials at Denver International Airport have refuted the hypothesis.

10. Lizard People

An alien reptile race is on the verge of conquering the United States and, with it, the rest of the Earth. Doesn't that seem insane? Perhaps to some, but not to conspiracy theorists who refuse to let this belief become history.

Many theorists believe that these lizard people (dubbed "Reptilians") can shape-shift and control the airport, utilizing it as a base of operations in their attempt to rule the planet. The race is said to employ slaves beneath the airport.
