Just way over priced. Can't bring your own food in like you can at places like Water world. It was dirty and a lot of rides were closed down and everything is overpriced from the admission, to the food and parking. Just didn't feel safe there

Hubby and I had an amazing time riding all the roller coasters. There are about six or seven. Enjoyed many rides and water park. It was fun!

This Park used to be better before Six Flags bailed. Seems this amusement park is in maintenance or survival mode only - No new rides or park upgrades since park was built! It is however, the only park of any size within 600 miles so I guess the owners/investors have little incentive to make improvements - that's too bad for a City the size of Denver!

Our objective at Elitch Gardens Theme and Water Park is to give guests the opportunity to create memories worth repeating with 53 rides, live entertainment, thrilling roller coasters and an entire water park. In fact, four new rides have been added in the past five years, with another yet-to-be announced new ride joining the line-up opening weekend, May 4 and 5, 2013. The park is constantly investing in the overall park experience, infrastructure, attractions and facilities. Every year the park entertains thousands of guests of all ages, each of whom is valued. We appreciate you taking the time to share your opinion.

Every time I go to this amusement park, I have one of the most fun times of my life. The rides are very fun and unique, especially the Mind Eraser!
The only complaint that I have is that the food is extremely expensive and not worth the amount you pay for.

always fun to go to a theme park to get the kiddos sick and everybody hot and tired. its a little dirty but then humans don't tend to pick up after themselves when they are out and about. Drink lots of alcohol and you won't mind the screaming kids or that lady throwing up in the bushes over there.

The workers are usually friendly and helpful and most of the rides are fairly clean.
