"At this time, we are still planning to open the park this season," Elitch Gardens Marketing Manager Jolie DuBois told Westword this week. "We are working closely with state and local authorities, and hope to have news soon."
And some readers eagerly await that news. Says Ronnie:
I feel bad for Elitch's. They've really been trying, and the city has been slamming the door in their face the whole time. It's even more sad considering the science that has shown that the virus rarely... if at all... spreads outdoors.
Yay! I’d love to go on a ride!
Yeah, hop on the coronavirus express.
If Elitch's opens, then every business in the city should be open with no restrictions.

2020 is so over.
With coronavirus cases on the rise right now in Denver, don't expect the city to allow Elitch Gardens to reopen soon. But then, positive cases are skyrocketing in Florida, home of Disney World.
This could be one wild ride.
