Perhaps best know as the home of Timber Terror, the famous above-and-below-ground roller coaster that travels at speeds of 55mph, Silverwood Theme Park is also the largest theme park in the Northwest United States.
What to Bring
If you’re planning a day of adventure at Silverwood, don’t forget to pack your bathing suit and sunscreen, as your ticket includes admission to Boulder Beach Water Park, a favorite place to beat the summer heat! All in all park features 70 rides, slides, shows and attractions.
Nestled in the forests of the Rocky Mountains and surrounded by the rivers and lakes many consider the wilderness recreation in North Idaho, Silverwood accommodates people of all ages and interests, and even the water park has slides for the thrill seekers and lazy rivers where visitors can just float and relax.
One of the most popular attractions in the park is the 1915 steam train that travels on a 3.5 loop track through the Victorian Village; the site of the original theme park that celebrated its 100th anniversary in 2015. Fear not, each train ride includes a staged robbery!
For dining, families might want to consider purchasing Buddy Bucks, pre-loaded cards that can be used at any of the 20 plus restaurants and retail shops. Park favorites are cold sasparilla and Idaho potatoes at Spiral Spuds or funnel cakes topped with huckleberries at the Sugar Shack.
Families or larger groups looking to establish a common meeting place might consider renting a private cabana at Boulder Beach Water Park. Rates for the cabanas are $275/day and include lockers, tube rentals, tables and chairs, food service, a small refrigerator, and souvenir towels.
