Students

Discount tickets for Elitch Gardens

April 9, 2010

Students, here is your chance to have fun and help a good cause. The Fort Collins International Center is teaming up with Coasters for Caring, a fundraiser sponsored by Elitch Gardens that gives you discount tickets, and donates a portion of the proceeds to organizations like FCIC.

Have fun, support FCIC

The Fort Collins International Center has once again partnered with Elitch Garden's annual fundraiser, Coasters for Caring, formerly known as "Spring Spin," to bring you discount tickets!

For $19.99, you receive an all day pass to Elitch Gardens amusement park, valid any operating day in May. In addition, your ticket includes a $2 food voucher to use at restaurants throughout the park, the opportunity to purchase $15 return ticket or upgrade to a Season Pass for an additional $29.99. Parking is $10.

General admission to the park is regularly $39.99, so purchasing through the Fort Collins International Center immediately saves you $20, while giving you the opportunity to support the many programs that FCIC brings. For each ticket sold, Elitch Gardens donates $5 to the Fort Collins International Center.
