My kids love to go to Elitch Gardens, but it is a pricey day. Definitely look for coupons and plan to pay for parking. Also, double check height requirements if your kids are little.

Elitch Gardens is a rather middling amusement park. If if's the only one you've ever seen, it'll be just fine. But if you're used to the better parks found in much of the rest of the country, it'll definitely be a disappointment. It is rather...More

That place is foul; save your money. It is overpriced and filthy. If any family member has a bee allergy, do not go! Bee's were everywhere: spilled soft drinks were all over and it smelled like sewer.

Under 18 are allowed without parents during the day. Evening events (after 6pm? not sure) require an adult for those under 18. May want to call to be sure.
