Is Buc-ee's In Johnstown, Colorado Still Crazy Packed?

From the moment they announced it, the hype for Buc-ee's to open its very first location in Colorado had the entire state buzzing with excitement. Even folks in surrounding states were fired up for this new Colorado addition.

Most Buc-ee's fanatics went and saw the popular convenience store on opening day, and it was crazy packed. I remember going on the very first night it was open and having to circle the parking lots to find a spot.

When I finally found one, (that was not a gas pump by the way, don't be that person LOL) I couldn't wait to set foot inside a world-famous Buc-ee's for the very first time, and I was not disappointed.

Colorado Buc-ee's Grand Opening Crowds Were Insane

If personal space is something you're into then opening day, even week or month at Buc'ees was not going to be the place for you. You could barely walk around as people happily explored Colorado's very first Buc-ee's location.

Out of curiosity, we went back a week later and the crowd was still crazy. Curiosity got the best of us again and we popped by again as we approached the two-month mark to see how things were looking there, and we were pretty surprised at the outcome.
