Fairly priced for the season pass plus it has a nice little water park. Fun place to spend the day with the family. Food is expensive but that is expected being an amusement park.

One of the best things about Elitch Gardens is that it's right in the heart of downtown Denver. If you're visiting our city, it's an easy walk/bike ride/cab ride to this nice amusement park. It's a lot of fun for the money and includes a water park. My husband and I opted for season passes this year (mostly for the... More

We purchased pre-season passes for 2014 and received free parking passes, refillable sippers that are good for $.99 refills anytime you visit the park. Plus, we have had the privilege to go to a couple free evening concerts. We saw Zendaya, the Newsboys, and willsee Brigitte Mendler this coming Saturday)! Of course, various times of day or week have different... More

Elitch's is a nice little amusement park with a fair share of gentle to extreme rides. There is both a water park and an amusement park, but I haven't been able to go to the water park yet, so I'll write that review later. Back to the main park. Overall, the trip was nice, worth the hour drives, but it... More

super fun. Food is outrageously priced, all the little games are expensive and a waste of money, but the rides are great

The tickets were a good price. The rides were awesome. I do prefer to buy the VIP passes for 30 bucks. It's gets you on a lot more rides. We did that and it was awesome! Around 2 o clock we went to the water park. Great rides and wave pool. The prices for food were ridiculous! Eat a big... More

We were here as part of an option given to those participating in a veterinary conference in Denver. I'm not sure of the cost of the attraction as we only had to pay a small portion as sponsors for the conference picked up the rest of the cost. It probably was our least favorite amusement park that we have been... More

Although it was many years ago (approx 8), it was part of the Six Flags chain. It was the only one where I ever saw a Bugs Bunny character (and got my picture with him). Oneo of the roller coasters broke down on the way up. People were rescued in a timely manner and the ride was back in service... More

This is my first time at Elitches and needles to say I probably won't be coming back. First of all there are not enough lockers to go around, so until someone leaves by mid-afternoon plan on holding onto your stuff. Oh, did I mention that there is not enough seating as well? So plan on standing around a while holding... More

I used to take my kids here back in the 90's and it was decent. I took my 12yr old grandson and we arrived at 6:00pm. We ended up riding the mind erasor & twister and that was it before they closed at 10:00! First of all, why not stay open until midnight like you used to, 2nd of all... More
