Start the summer season of fun off right at
Silverwood Theme Park
It won’t be long now: SILVERWOOD THEME PARK opening day is this weekend! To celebrate, they’re offering “anniversary” pricing May 4 and 5, saving you nearly $20 per ticket per day.
The savings don’t end there, though. On Mother’s Day Weekend, May 11-12, enjoy reduced ticket pricing and free entry for moms with paid ticket purchase. Kids’ Weekend follows, May 18-19, and with every general admission ticket purchase, you’ll receive a free youth (ages 3-7) ticket. On Memorial Day Weekend, Silverwood honors police, fire and both active and retired military personnel from May 25-27 on American Heroes Weekend.
Never been to Silverwood? Here’s the scoop. There is plenty to see and do for all ages, with around 70 rides, from mellow to bone-rattling like the Panic Plunge. Relax in the picnic area or nibble your way through more than two dozen eateries from funnel cakes at the Sugar Shack to a sit-down meal at Country BBQ. Play arcade games, take a leisurely ride in the vintage train, or catch a Vegas-style magic show (offered twice a day) at the Theater of Illusion.
In June, BOULDER BEACH opens up for fun on and in the water, with rides like the Riptide Racer: a 60-foot tall slide with lanes for up to six individuals to race down more than 400 feet of rip, roarin’ slide.
Make a weekend out of it. Bring the RV and camp out in Silverwood’s convenient park. Amenities include laundry facilities, kids’ play areas, a picnic table and fire ring at each site and free Wi-Fi. Visit silverwoodthemepark.com/lodging for details.
Insider tip: You still have one more day to purchase “early bird” passes for entry to Silverwood and Boulder Beach anytime this summer, just $42 for one day or $75 for two days (ends May 3).
