Spring into Silverwood Theme Park

It’s almost springtime, and that means Silverwood Theme Park is ready to open. Red Lion Templin’s Hotel on the River is just a short trip from Idaho’s signature theme park and some of the most exciting adventures in the West. With exciting roller coasters, splashy water rides, and thrilling shows, Silverwood has something for kids and adult of all ages. As one of the best hotels near the theme park, we’ve been able to do rigorous testing to come up with the 5 best things to do at Silverwood.

  1. Get Shocked by Aftershock Once, Then Twice

Voted the Top Hanging Coaster by Travel Channel in 2012, this 191-foot beast throws you forward through a cobra roll and inverted loop. You’ll hit 65 miles per hour before halting at a 90 degree angle, then getting sent barreling backwards through the whole thing! It’s two thrills in one in the skies over Silverwood.

  1. Take a Trip on the Steam Engine Train

The historic Engine No. 7 winds around the whole park, including the backwoods. It’s a fun ride for all ages and everyone in the family. This train’s always on time—hop aboard every hour on the hour.

  1. Get Mystified by Nick Norton

Silverwood’s magician in residence Nick Norton puts on a jaw-dropping show for the whole family. Watch this master illusionist blow your mind with thrilling tricks in this Vegas-style show. It’s fun for all ages, and shows happen at least twice a day.

  1. Roll Through Ricochet Rapids

Take a family raft slide down a 40-foot mountain and into a 30-foot valley, and then, a steep drop into a 20-foot diameter enclosed Mega Tube! Ricochet Rapids is a rollicking time and a great way to beat the heat in summer.

  1. Be Haunted by Scarywood

It’s a whole different park in the fall. Silverwood becomes Scarywood in October, and it’s filled with Halloween-themed rides like The Scarywood Express, and haunting events like 3Dementia. It’s terror for the whole family!

It’s almost May, so start packing. Bring your sunglasses, sandals, and excitement to our Silverwood Theme Park hotel, and get ready for a fun family adventure!
