A family-fun experience at Elitch Gardens Theme & Water Park
Growing up visiting Elitch's Gardens was always a big summer treat. Now that my son is 5 year old, I couldn't wait for him to experience one of my favorite spots as a kid. On the way to the park, he talked endlessly about the Ferris Wheel (which was also enjoyed) but with a little nudge he bucked up for the Blazin’ Buckaroo roller coaster. The other major highlight for him: Shipwreck Falls where Everett loved both riding and standing in the soak zone for a monster wave.
