DENVER – Kids rejoice. Elitch Gardens, the Denver area’s largest amusement park, opens for its 122nd season this weekend.
The park is open from 10 a.m. until 8 p.m. on Saturday, and 10 a.m. until 7 p.m. on Sunday.
To compliment classic thrill rides like Mind Eraser, Boomerang and Twister II, the park is debuting two new rides at KiddieLand this year: Rockin’ Tug and Tike Bikes.
“Kids and their parents will enjoy Rockin’ Tug. It’s our sea faring ride that simulates gentle ocean waves,” says Elitch Gardens spokeswoman Erica Boniface. “It’s just a cute boat ride that even blows bubbles when guests are aboard.”
There is also a new stage at KiddieLand featuring an interactive show called “Rock School for Kids.”
Boniface says they’re also putting the “gardens” back in Elitch Gardens this season with 25,000 new annuals, perennials, shrubs and trees throughout the park.
