We went to Elitch Gardens this past weekend, and the place was sheer madness! It was the last weekend for the water park and water rides, so most of the people were there, but even the regular rides were super crowded. Elitches had just introduced its amazing deal – $54.99 for a park pass for the remainder of this season and all of next, so you can imagine how crowded it was for Labor Day weekend! We met a family who has been there 30 times, just this season.
Our family got a chance to visit the water park for the first time but the lines were a bit long, so we did not get to try many of the rides. The wave pool seemed to be a hit and lazy river too. The concession lines were long too, so I do not recommend going for during holiday weekends, if you can help it, as you cannot really enjoy the theme park and all it has to offer. We did get to ride Meow Wolf's Kaleidoscape ride and it was nice and with a pair of 3D glasses, it is even better. Someone handed my daughter a pair so we could enjoy it. I noticed a lot of folks come around 4pm, as Elitches is open til 10pm, but the water rides close at 6pm.
The food options are plentiful but lines were long too with the holiday weekend. Elitches is also offering a meal plan deal for next season, and if you are going often enough, it may be worth it for you. The water park is closed now, as it closed on Labor Day, but the rest of the rides are open through Halloween, so don’t forget to check it out for Fright Fest, and all the other fun Fall events there!
