Wishlist and Elitch Gardens Pair Up!

No summer is complete without the endless temptation of funnel cake, rides down massive water slides, or an opportunity to win a giant stuffed panda. Theme Parks are synonymous with summer, so this year, spend your days at the expansive Elitch Gardens with a day tickets for two. Located in the heart of Denver for over 125 years Elitch Gardens is America’s only Downtown Theme and Water Park. With 53 rides and attractions, including 14 pint-sized adventures, thrilling roller coasters, and an entire water park, there’s something for everyone. Enjoy exciting family shows, Dive-In movies at the water park, free concerts, and firework extravaganzas. Here’s what we have to offer:

Elitch Gardens Day Ticket (For two)

Here’s what we would do with our Wishlist pass to Elitch Gardens:

The Mind Eraser – This mega rollercoaster is not messing around. Slip through rollovers, dives, and double corkscrew spins at speeds greater than 50 mph. The best part? Your legs are suspended the whole time. Guests must be at least 52 inches tall.

Turn of the Century – For the less extreme coaster riders the Turn of the Century ride is a lazy spin through the sky. You’ll drift around in an elevated swing, affording you a panoramic view of the park. Guests must be at least 48 inches tall.

Ghost Blasters – It’s never too early to start celebrating Halloween, and this summer you can have some frightful fun at Elitch’s interactive haunted house. Compete against friends or family as you blast zombies and ghosts on your quest to escape. Guests must be at least 30 inches tall.

Sea Dragon – Sit beside Vikings as you swing back and forth on a massive wooden ship. This ride is for the more easy-going Elitch guests, and essentially feels like you’re swinging on a giant rocking chair. Guests must be at least 42 inches tall.

Tilt-A-Whirl – The classic game of our childhoods is back in all its glory. Take a spin in The Tilt-A-Whirl, a giant drum that spins you so quickly you’ll be suctioned to the wall.

Acapulco Cliff Dive – Cool off with some of the thrill rides at the inclusive Elitch Water Park. The Acapulco Cliff Dive is a 65-foot tall high, speed, high-thrill, free-fall slide. If you think it’s scary walking to the top of the slide, just wait until you cruise down. Guests must be 52 inches tall and cannot exceed 250 pounds.

Paradise Plunge – A Wishlist team favorite, have a splash on this 62-foot long enclosed water tube. With a corkscrew speed slide that ends in a bowl of water it feels like you’re shot through a canon, with a smoother landing of course.

For our corporate clients, we can offer bigger ticket bundles along with season passes based on your budget! Contact hello@wishlistrewards.com to learn more about offering this packages to your employees.
