Elitch Gardens happens to be a combination theme park as well as water park as well and is now open for the summer months, and right smack dab in the heart of Denver. This is a must-stop locale for those with kids as well as the young at heart. The water park observes the traditional warm season fun schedule. It is open from Memorial Day, the unofficial beginning of summer time vacation, through Labor Day, the proverbial end of summer time breaks… Whether you are on a team thrill ride or prefer the more calm nature of tamer family-friendly activities, your need for fun as well as adventure can be met at Elitch… Even though marijuana happens to be legal in Denver, the management of elitch does not permit smoking of any type in the park, so even though it sounds thrilling, don’t plan on adding that particular category of entertainment to your trip into Elitch. If it’s a bit too frosty or you just are not in the mood for water slides as well as zipping around on rented tubes, you can regularly trek over to the theme park portion of the locale. Since elitch has an abundance of rides, you can easily twist as well as turn your way through screams as well as laughter. The steel roller coaster, the Boomerang, is an enjoyable way to feel your heart in your throat, but sorry wee tots. The minimum height is 48 inches. If you actually love to be up high, why not get aboard the Brain Drain; it is more than 2 stories in height, as well as when you go upside down, you will certainly feel some brain drain! If you brought the littlest of your kids with you, the Blazin’ Buckaroo might be a bit more appropriate, as well as it is also your chance. It’s great to take a bit of a breather from the scary loops as well as turns your teenagers prefer sometimes.
