It's a sign that summer is right around the corner: Elitch Gardens is making their preparations for the 2018 season.

The Denver amusement park has announced a new park pass specifically for children. The new Pre-K Pass will grant free theme and water park admission to children three to five years of age for the entire 2018 season.

“As an iconic part of the Denver community for 128 years we are very excited to announce the PRE-K Pass as we continue to make Elitch Gardens the exciting and affordable destination for family fun,” Layne Pitcher, Director of Marketing of Elitch Gardens, said in a news release.

Parents have until May 20 to register their child online for the Pre-K Pass at and must process their child’s Pre-K Pass at the park by June 24. Children must be three to five years old before the June 24 deadline.

For parents looking at purchasing a season pass, adult passes are $69.99 and include unlimited visits to the theme and water park, free parking, free tickets for friends and free concerts. Season passes are available online at or at any Colorado King Soopers location.

Elitch Gardens opens April 28 for it's 128th season.
