After being linked to numerous conspiracy theories over the years, the Denver International Airport has finally decided to celebrate their unique place in esoteric lore.
The notorious facility, which opened in 1995, has long been rumored to be the site of a secret underground base that, depending on who you ask, is the home to clandestine government agencies, secret societies, or even alien entities.
According to conspiracy theorists, the airport's role as a hub for the New World Order is tacitly acknowledged in the mysterious, esoteric, and downright sinister-looking artwork, such as the one seen above, found at the facility.
While administrators have long dismissed such claims as ridiculous, they have recently reversed course and opted to recognize the rumors via a series of events at the airport this month.
Noting that the site has become a fixture in the conspiracy research community, airport CEO Kim Day announced that the airport would be "embracing that strangeness and sharing in the fun" throughout October.
Among the events planned for the DIA over the next few weeks are a standing exhibit detailing the many conspiracy theories tied to the airport over the years and tours around the facility to showcase the artwork often cited by paranormal researchers.
The festivities will culminate with a 'conspiracy costume party' on October 20th which will, no doubt, be populated by several Men in Black.
But the most tantalizing aspect of the airport's announced events is a contest which will award the winner a chance to "explore the airport's underground facilities in search of evidence of a conspiracy."
While we're guessing that they'll hide the alien bodies before allowing the contest winner down below, it's still a pretty amazing opportunity to visit a place that otherwise would be off-limits for average travelers and aspiring conspiracy theorists.
That said, we don't expect the DIA's decision to celebrate conspiracy culture to go over well with those who suspect that the site actually does double as some kind of secret base.
Because, after all, making the conspiracy theories surrounding the DIA into something 'fun' for the public could be yet another devious tactic from the Illuminati.
