    This policy is subject to change at Elitch Gardens’ discretion.

    Elitch Gardens does not assume any responsibility or liability for unattended minors; children and the behavior of all minors are the sole responsibility of their parent(s) or guardian(s), and parents/guardians may be held legally liable for all acts of the children under their care.

    Minors in violation of the Elitch Gardens’ rules may be ejected (without refund) or detained, in Elitch Gardens’ discretion, as evaluated on a case-by-case basis.  While Elitch Gardens may attempt to contact a minor’s parent/guardian to have them picked up, this is done out of concern and courtesy, but is not bound to a duty or be held responsible or liable if a minor leaves the park, or for anything occurring after a minor has left park grounds.

    Thank you for your help in responsibly supervising, monitoring and controlling minors in your care.

    If while at the park you cannot locate your child, Elitch Gardens staff is here to assist you; however, we do not page guests.  We suggest that as you enter the park you decide on a centralized meeting place should you be separated from any minors under your care.
