  • Denver's Elitch Gardens: Mile high fun (as your money slip slides away)

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Nice variety of rides, fun water park.
    Cons: guard your wallet! Rental fees and food can add up quickly.

    Summary: Although I'm not a big fan of amusement parks, each summer I feel it is my parental duty to take my kids to one, so I put on my happy face and walking shoes and try to make the best of it. Here in our new home in the Denver area that park would be ... read more

    Pros: Great rides, staff and entertainment. The season pass is a great deal.
    Cons: Make sure you bring water and sunscreen.

    Summary: Six Flags Elitch Gardens is by far the best theme park within Colorado (or any bordering states). Granted, it may not be the best in the world, but it easily provides a day of fun for the entire family. If you are considering visiting for more than a ... read more

  • More Six Flags than Elitch Gardens

    Nov 17, 2004 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Newer rides
    Cons: Park layout doesn't flow well, small and busy

    Summary: I have renamed this place the "Abusement Park." Why? First off, this place was packed, even on a cold and cloudy day we went there. Thus, we waited in line about an hour and a half to ride the Mind Eraser. Then, we waited just under three hours to ... read more

    Pros: Nice little park for those who have never experienced anything else
    Cons: It is REALLY small.

    Summary: My comments will in part be based on my experience going to Six Flags Great Adventure in NJ. We went to Elitch during Fright Fest about 1 or 2 weeks before the parked closed for the season so many things were closed like the shows and the water park, ... read more

    Pros: Great kid area, has a few decent rides, short lines
    Cons: expensive, not too much for adults

    Summary: Living 20 minutes from Elitch Gardens we thought it would be fun to go during Fright Fest. This is when they have the whole park decorated for Halloween. I have been to many Six Flags and I would have to say this one rates near the ... read more

    Pros: Rides that take you...umm...back where you started from
    Cons: Pricey, Crowded, No shade (that would mean no trees), Uncomfortable, Crabby employees, $6.00 hot dogs!?

    Summary: There are certain truths that are evident in free market societies, such as the one we're living in...certain invaluable bits of information that will explain to you why sometimes businesses stink, and sometimes they rock. When a business (six ... read more

    Pros: Has a good variety of rides to keep both kids and adults happy
    Cons: Expensive; long lines, especially on big rides

    Summary: Elitch Gardens, with its near-century long history (back then it was actually a garden!), is a major part of the Denver experience. It has been at its current downtown location since 1995 and became a Six Flags park in 1999, and with several major rides ... read more

    Pros: Relatively short lines. Great fun!
    Cons: Not a lot of great thrill rides.

    Summary: I remember the old Elitch Gardens before Six Flags bought the theme park. And let me tell you, the park is much more fun now! Before it was a Six Flags, it was just a family park with no real thrill rides other than the classic wooden roller coaster, the ... read more

    Pros: The kids rides are varied and great for toddlers if you can get on them.
    Cons: No Batman show after labor day. No refunds on consignment tickets.

    Summary: My five year old had a cast on one arm from his wrist to elbow. He couldn't go on any rides except for a truck ride that went around in a circle. And this is after my in-laws bought tickets, and we went through the gate and through Security. No one ... read more

    Pros: Easy to get to from the Denver-Metro area.
    Cons: Few small, unoriginal coasters that are hardly thrilling.

    Summary: Bottom line- this park is very small, lacks theming, has too many flat rides and not enough coasters. The coasters that it does have are soo small that they nearly make the park look like nothing but a gallery of slightly advanced kiddy rides. Heck- the ... read more
