After 5+ years of begging my sister finally talked my height fearing, motion sickness self to join her for a day at Silverwood. It's basically in our back yard and buying tickets through Costco makes it extremely affordable for an amusement park. I must say I absolutely loved it! The staff is friendly, the park is clean, and it feels... More

This place is off the radar for most amusement park people, but it shouldn't be! It has some of the best roller coasters and water slides I've ever been on. Its cheap. The lines are short. Its clean and the atmosphere is quite pleasant. Yes its in the middle of nowhere, but its a destination all in itself!

On there web site it looks like a Six Flags type of operation but that's not the case. Ive been to numerous theme parks and this place is small time all the way.The rides only have one train each and the employees seemed to get off by making us wait as long as possible to get on the one train...

Long, very long, lines. Not as well run as it could have been. Food lineups were 45 minutes. Rides well over an hour. We were so frustrated by the end of the day, with having spent most of the day in lineups, we probably won't go back. :/ This was our second trip. Definitely try to go during the school... More

We had a good time. There was plenty of rides for young and old. The inner place near the entrance was excellent, very friendly staff and the food was good and reasonably priced. Wish they had more shows to watch because the water park wasnt open yet. The train ride was very fun.

We visited opening weekend and were very pleasantly surprised. Although the waterpark was not yet open we enjoyed the variety of rides (even water rides) and it certainly was enough for a whole day of fun. The staff were very friendly and helpful! If we looked lost they stopped to direct us. We were extremely impressed with the safety measures... More

The roller coaster rides are fun in addition to having less intense rides for smaller children. In actuality, there is a subdivision of the park intended for the youngest attendees. The water park is often packed on sunny days, but it is clean and well maintained. They have lockers for rent, which are not expensive, and easily accessible when needed.

I used to go here every summer as kid and even teenager. The amusement park is awesome and so is the water park. Lots to do, pretty pricey but worth it!

Great way to spend the day. We've never spent the night so have only made time for the carnival side. Can get off a ride and right back on again at less busy times.
