The Thrills are Back at Elitch Gardens

New Guidelines – Same Fun

April 7, 2021

Hang on to your hats and secure all loose articles – the thrills are back at Colorado’s only combination theme & water park!

Elitch Gardens Theme & Water Park has been approved by City and State officials to open for the 2021 season with new health and safety guidelines. Elitch Gardens will open to Season Pass holders on April 24th and 25th and to the public on May 1st. Reservations will be required.

“After having to be closed all of last season, all of us at Elitch Gardens are extremely excited to be able to once again deliver the kind of outstanding family fun we’ve been known for over the past 130 years,” said David Dorman, Elitch Gardens General Manager.

Did you register for a Pre-K Pass in 2020?

Due to very limited capacity at the park this summer, registration for the Pre-K Program has been suspended for 2021.

However, anyone who registered for 2020 Pre-K passes, including 5-year-old kiddos who would have aged out of the program, will be extended through the 2021 season. Pre-K members will still need to activate their pass in 2021 by the activation deadline of June 27, 2021, by showing valid proof of age. 

This is a one-time-only extension to those who had already registered for a 2020 Pre-K pass.

A Message from Elitch Gardens:
Here at Elitch Gardens, we understand that it is a difficult and uncertain time for all. We want to bring the fun back in a big way in 2021. We also want you, our pass holders, to have peace of mind when purchasing your season pass. In the unlikely event the Park does not open at all for the 2021 season, your 2021 season pass will extend for the 2022 season.

Pass holders who experience a COVID-19 health-related change or concern which prohibits them from visiting the Park for the season may also move unused passes to the 2022 season.

For those who had purchased a 2020 Season Pass, your pass has been automatically transferred to the new 2021 VIP Season Pass. This special VIP pass will also extend to the 2022 season should the Park not open at all for the 2021 season.
