Elitch Gardens
Denver, Colorado

     The original Elitch Gardens park opened way back in 1890, but it closed its gates permanently in October 1994.  In 1995, the park opened in a new location on a small plot of land close to downtown Denver.  Unfortunately, many great rides and attractions were abandoned at the old park.  Even worse, several wonderful coasters were left at the old location.  Coaster fans everywhere were saddened when the old coasters were demolished.  

    Six Flags purchased the park for $65 million in 1996 and renamed it Six Flags Elitch Gardens in 1999.  In 2007, Six Flags sold Elitch and six other parks for $312 million.  Its name reverted again to just Elitch Gardens for the 2007 season.  PARC Management currently leases the park from CNL Income Properties.  The park is small and surrounded by development, so further expansion is not expected.
