With Summer already here, what better way to spend the days than with a family fun vacation. Come venture out to Silverwood and enjoy their insane roller coasters, awesome rides, and extreme water park!

Those of you who have never been to the Silverwood Amusement park, you are missing out on a mind blowing experience.  It is located 30 minutes from Spokane, WA and only a few minutes from Coeur d'Alene, ID on Highway 95.

For years I have been visiting Silverwood with both family and friends. You can literally spend all day at this amusement park, soaking up the sun in Boulder Beach or screaming your head off on one of the many roller coasters.

Things to bring to Silverwood:

No successful day at the park is complete or fun without these basic essentials!

  • Sunscreen
  • Towel
  • Swimsuit
  • Sunglasses
  • Camera for capturing the epicness
  • Water bottle
  • An awesome attitude
  • A group of amazing friends
  • Small purse/bag to hold money

Best Roller Coaster:

The best ride by far is the Aftershock! Complete with two 177 foot drops, this metal monster will reach speeds up to 65 miles per hour. To get your head spinning even more, this rockin' roller coaster includes a cobra roll and an inverted look, then does it backwards! Reaching 4.5 G- forces, this ride is sure to be a thrill.

Best Water Slide:

Splash into the Boulder Beach Park located in Silverwood and bring friends along with you to the Ricochet Rapids Water Slide.  Ideal for families and groups, this slide uses large multi person rafts to coast down the exhilarating mountain.

Don't know where to stay when you visit? No problem! Enjoy more time with the family and experience a woodland atmosphere by staying in Silverwoods very own Camping and RV Park. Not only are you staying in the closest lodging to the park, but will also receive a discount on park admission prices.
