I was over charged many times throughout 2013. I went to the desk, they advised to call the office. I have called the office many many times and left message after message...no return call / no return email / NO REFUND! I provided the medical paperwork that was requested but still NO REFUND. I was charged for parking but when... More

We apologize that your experience at our park was not completely enjoyable. Creating positive and memorable guest experiences is incredibly important to us. Our Fright Fest attractions tend to be very popular and purchasing a VIP Scream Pass is a great way to avoid the lines and experience the houses and shows much faster. We can certainly understand your frustration... More

Going anywhere as a group of 21 people is hard. Going with most of them as teen is terrifying for the adults. However this was a great trip. In town for a Catholic Youth Conference we promised our teens they could go to the park before the Conference started. They loved it. And even though we were somehow short a... More

We went with some friends and hot every ride. Most of these were great but maybe because it was the end of summer, the employees just didn't care too much about our safety and making sure we were locked in; or moving too quickly after someone that just went in front of us. The food stand were TERRIBLE! We literally... More

Just loved all the rides. I went with a lot of friends on a day long excursion. It was close to the Halloween and everyone was dressed up. The rides were superb and i thoroughly enjoyed the experience. The only downside was that the Water rides were closed.

I love all the rides and the water park is great. Bring your own food because things are expensive. Great roller coasters and water slides!

We were able to enter fairly quickly (We came around Fright Nights I guess and were happy the weather wasn't too chilly) but were very disappointing to find out the first ride we came upon we...

If you are looking for some entertainment and something to do with your family, then go to Elitch Garden. This isn't a theme park unlike no other, but we all enjoyed ourselves and had a great time!
