We will work hard to make sure the car wash is a clean, economical, environmentally safe, and pleasant experience for customers.
City Horizon Car Wash was started in 2014 with a desire to provide outstanding service and quality car washes in Adams County and the Denver metro area. Enjoy the view of the city horizon while you wash your car or soon have it washed in one of two, state of the art Laserwash 360 touch free automatic washes.
Automatic Touchless Wash
Why is “Touchless” so important? Quite simply, traditional brush or friction washes as they are known, continuously rub and brush the paint on your vehicle. Even the best “Friction” washes can cause dirt or grime on your vehicle to be “ground” into the paint causing scratches and swirls. Also often causing damage to mirrors, wipers and antennas.
The Laserwash 360 is the latest version in the laserwash series of touchless automated car washes. Take a look at this video to see how our Touchless Laserwash 360 works.
The Laserwash 360 actually measures the size of your vehicle using ultrasonic sensors, so that the high pressure jets can be adjusted to the optimum distance and follow the actual contour of your vehicle. A two-step soap process eliminates dirt without the destructive "sanding" action of friction/brush washes. Our high quality waxes and sealants are essential to good car care, and they are followed by a spot free water rinse.
They feature an integrated “Smart 360 Drying System” which features a unique “Flash Dry” service that takes no additional time for a basic dry by performing a rinse and dry in a single operation. Flash Dry is based on the simple theory that it is easier to remove water that is already moving.
Different driving conditions and changing seasons call for different types of washes. Salt and magnesium chloride in winter mean an underbody wash is vital in protecting the underside of your vehicle. During the hot summer, you’ll find regular applications of Clear Coat with Weather Shield protect your finish from the sun and keep the bugs from sticking.
Our self-service options feature two large, clean and well-maintained bays, all with new fixtures and brushes, four vacuum stations, including two High Power Turbo Vac with spot remover and a shampoo option. Our self-serve equipment does not take tokens, but takes quarters and $1 coins. Quarters can be obtained from the centrally located bill changer on the east side of the building. The wash bays also accept credit cards, debit cards, pre-paid gift cards & fleet cards.
Wash bay pricing is $0.50 to start using cash and $2.00 to start using a credit card. After that it's $0.25 for every 30 seconds. The features in the self-service bays are:
- NEW - Air Dryer
- Low Pressure Tire Cleaner
- Low Pressure PreSoak
- High Pressure Adam's Polishes Car Shampoo
- Foaming Brush Detergent
- High Pressure Rinse
- Clear Coat Protectant
- High Pressure Wax
- High Pressure Spot Free Rinse
Our self-service wash bays use quarters, dollar coins, credit cards, debit cards, pre-paid cards, gift cards and fleet cards. Once you swipe your card, you can choose to take as much time as you like to complete the perfect wash, without having to scramble for more coins.
For those customers who would like their vehicle dried more completely, we have programmed our Touchless Automatic LaserWash 360 to offer a "DRY ONLY" option, with a triple pass dry cycle costing only $2.00.
Vacuum price is $1 for five minutes with your choice of four powerful vacuums. The spot remover and shampoo vacuums cost $1 for one minute and 30 seconds.
City Horizon Car Wash features a vending machine with a choice of car care products.
Wash bay pricing is $.50 for the first minute, $1.00 per 2 minutes thereafter. You can take as little or as long as you like. The average self-serve user takes about 10 to 15 minutes, some less, some take much longer for “sublime pampering”. Even a 30 minute marathon costs only $15.00.
We suggest using a Credit Card or Debit Card so that you can take as long as you wish and not have to scramble to insert more coins before time expires. As soon as you press the RED STOP BUTTON on the Card Reader, we stop charging your Credit Card.
For your protection we have set a maximum charge of $15.00 on Credit Cards, so even if you forget to press the STOP you cannot be charged more than $15.00.
