Elitch Gardens is an amusement park located in Denver, Colorado, USA.
Following the 1994 season the park moved to its current location in downtown Denver and later became known as "Six Flags Elitch Gardens". In August 2006, Six Flags sold Elitch Gardens for $170 million dollars. The park was sold again by CNL Lifestyle Properties in 2015 to a group of investors.
The plot of land on which Elitch Gardens sits is due to be redeveloped into a residential area. In December 2018, the developers stated that there were no "immediate plans" to close the park and that it may be relocated in the future.
On July 31, 2020, the park published a letter on its website stating that it would not oprerate at all in 2020 as a result of the coronavirus pandemic. The park stated that did not receive permission from the state to reopen, nor had any timetable for easing of restrictions been determined.
