Elitch Gardens Theme & Water Park has announced it will not open for the 2020 season. In a press release, the company said park ownership and management are disappointed not to be able to entertain the more than one million guests who visit the Park every season and regret not being able to hire the 1,400+ people normally employed each summer.
Pre-purchased 2020 Season Passes will automatically be transferred over to a 2021 VIP Season Pass. Numerous other perks are being added and have been shared with Season Pass holders via personal emails. All 2020 single-day tickets pre-purchased will be transferred to the 2021 season as well.
No action is required by ticket and pass holders, the transfer is automatic. Pass holders and ticket holders with specific questions should email to firstname.lastname@example.org with the guest name and purchase confirmation number.
The release goes on to say that park management had spent months consulting with industry experts and government officials to develop a comprehensive plan, including new sanitation and social distancing protocols, that would allow the Park to operate safely.
Unfortunately, despite management’s substantial efforts, the Park has been unable to obtain government approval to open. As a result, Elitch Gardens will remain closed this year.
The Park looks forward to welcoming guests back in 2021 for its 130th Anniversary Celebration 2.0.
