We want to help plan your visit to Elitch Gardens Theme & Water Park so you have a fun and relaxing time!
Visited on October 1st and was thrilled that all of the Halloween decor was up already! And the creepy Halloween sounds/music coming over the loudspeakers all day was AMAZING. As far as the rides go- the half pipe was my favorite. I wish there were more thrill rides. But, for the small size, this park packs a punch. Save money by purchasing tickets online, not at the box office ($40 instead of $55).
It had enthusiastic rides!🤗There's even a baby area for all the younger kids with littler rides to go on!😀Also, the water park has a giant wave pool, a lazy pool, a baby area, and a bunch of water rides. In the summer there's concerts and fun magic shows! Plus more!!!😆Oh and if u have a season pass (80-90$) you can get in free whenever. If you dont have a pass, you have to pay 150$ per person. It's worth it to buy the pass because 150 dollars per person is a lot of money😊!!!!!!!!!!! You will have to check it out one day! It's fun for the whole family👨👩👧👦

My daughter and her friend and I went to eliches for a fun day the theme park was fun but dirty I guess that’s what you would expect if the theme park is outside. We went to the water park and my daughter and her friend love water slides and we decided to wait a little while because the lines where long. After a little they were waiting in line for what seemed like over a hour and they were second in line and then the guy operating it got a call and he said there was a lightning warning which was a little confusing because the sky was clear he made everyone get out of line and the 2 seconds later he let everyone back on and they lost there spots! What a bummer.
It's fun, I try to go there every year but there are some problems. In some spots it smells really bad. I dislike how the stalls are so close together and very rarely you might see barf sitting on the floor and it takes a while to get cleaned. The water park is also fun I love it there but the water is usually extremely cold although you would get used to it. There are never seats, I understand first come first serve but I feel they could do a better job about it. All together I feel safe there and everything has been good so far
Had a great amount of fun in the Gazebo with my nephews! Much of the equipment was not working, but enough of it was for everyone there to still have a ton of fun! The rest of the park was pretty cool as well, but for it being fairly uncrowded, the lines were still very long. I recommend eating before you go here though. The food isn't bad, just expensive.
