AOL Travel Editor’s Review

If you have tikes to entertain or you’re an adrenaline junkie looking to ride every coaster from coast-to-coast, Elitch Gardens is a good place to spend an afternoon. This historic theme park can trace its roots back to the 1890s. True to its name, it was once known for its beautiful gardens (at a previous location). Today, it's a full-scale amusement park, one of the top things to do in Denver for children and teens that enjoy the thrill of coasters and other rides . The Mind Eraser is aptly named: this suspension coaster climbs 10 stories and drops. Besides the gut-wrenching thrillers, the park has 13 pint-sized rides for the younger crowd. Elitch Gardens is a fun family outing, and it's located right in downtown Denver. The park is open from May to Labor Day, but hours vary by day (as do admission prices and parking rates) so check the website before planning your trip. Outside food and beverage aren't permitted, so plan on bringing some extra cash to eat onsite.

There is not enough seating in the park, by 11 am all the seats are leaving no where for parents to sit and watch kids. There is also no open space to lay a towel down. So if you are not in by 11am plan on carring your stuff with you...   Read More
