Since we stayed close by Elitch Gardens Theme Park we decided to see what the park was like. It had lots of water rides. The park was small and family oriented. We had a very enjoyable time.

Yes, they do allow you to ride bare footed. You'll be able to leave them in cubbies for each ride and get them back at the end.

If you hop on Elitches website they have each area of the park broken into different sections and there are photos of the rides there.
