Had a lit of fun with my buddy. Was hot and needed plenty of drinks. Long lines so getting the line pass is worth it.

Sure the rides themselves are fun. But you know what’s NOT fun? Spending 9 hours there and only riding 8 rides. But what about the water park you say? Sure if you don’t mind waiting nearly 45 minutes to change in an incredibly disgusting shower...More

The lines were very short, 15-25 minute wait for anything. Rides were fun and good for many ages. Bathrooms were very dirty though and the unloading and loading for The Spider was not smartly done.

It was 97 degrees the day we went so the lines weren't very long. We thought the water park was open later than 6:00. Sad that they tore out the little kids water park. Everything else was great! Sad that you have to pay to...More

Elitch Gardens (EG) is only one of two amusement parks that Denver has (the other being Lakeside). You have to go in knowing that is has a small footprint. I mean, come on, if you don't see that from I-25 then you have some problems....More
