Dear Elitch Gardens Guests:

As an important part of Denver’s historic landscape since 1890, Elitch Gardens Theme & Water Park is committed to continue the tradition of providing quality family fun to our community. The safety and well-being of our guests and team members have always been our top priority.

As our guests, we understand you may have questions about COVID-19 and our park. We want to provide you with information and keep you updated on future plans.

At this time, Opening Day, originally scheduled for April 11, has been postponed. We are currently planning to open on May 16. With big things in store for 2020, we are looking forward to celebrating our 130th anniversary with you this season.

We have specific, stringent sanitation protocols in place for every operating department. In preparation for Opening Day and while closely monitoring the evolving situation, we have put in place plans to exponentially increase our sanitizing protocol and will continue to follow the guidance of state and local health agencies.

All guest and team member high-touch points including surfaces, railings, technology screens, handles and doors will be sanitized throughout the day as per regular policy. We are also adding additional hand sanitizer stations throughout the park. Anti-bacterial soap will continue to be available throughout the park and signs will be installed to remind team members and guests of health and hygiene best practices.

In addition to the steps outlined above, we will ask team members who are exhibiting cold or flu-like symptoms to stay home and contact their healthcare provider. The park will follow guidance from local and state officials, as well as the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and World Health Organization (WHO.)

Please continue to check our website as we will share updates as they become available.

We look forward to entertaining you at Elitch Gardens soon!
