Art Day
May 25 

Multiversal tourism is on the rise in Denver, thanks to Meow Wolf’s new Convergence Station! Our Wandering Characters experience sends a group of bubble-headed Convergence Residents to your event to mingle with your guests, learn about earth traditions, and share their own eclectic adventures. Our Wandering Characters aren’t big on words, but they’re excited to snap selfies, engage in interactive encounters and entertain Earthers with their curiosity and creativity! More info coming soon!

  • What if we want different lunch options?

    Not everyone has to pick the same thing. You can purchase a different number of lunches than you do tickets.

  • How does the Chaperone Policy affect our visit?

    Schools are unaffected by the chaperone policy as all groups come supervised. The group’s chaperone needs to be in the park but does not need to be with the students at all times.

  • What if we need an Educational Aspect to have a field trip at Elitch Gardens?

    Please check out one our amazing workbooks. New this year is our Education in Motion workbook! Something for every subject!

  • Do Chaperone tickets include lunch?

    No. Chaperone tickets are for admission only.

  • What if we are tax exempt?

    Online purchases do not have tax. If you wish to book a catered lunch our Sales Rep will be able to help you.

  • How much is parking for our school bus?

    There is no parking cost for school buses.
