We have not been to a ton of amusement parks but what struck me the most when we got here is that it was nice and spread out so you didn't feel like you were shoulder to shoulder with others. Lots of trees and vegetation to rest in so you were not burning from hot pavement. We had so much... More

One of my sons was born in Idaho and I promised him nine years ago we'd go to Silverwood. The rides were better than expected as the roller coasters had good velocity and heft while the Panic Plunge really unnerved me. I'm a former Paratrooper and Jumpmaster and I loved this ride because it scared the Hell out me and... More

This was the second going to this theme park, the couple of days were really enjoyable. Lots to do, rides, water slides and a Magic show that most people would pay $30 to see. It was rated best show at a theme park, my youngest really loves Magic and it didn't disappoint.

My teens only had Disneyland as a previous experience in theme parks, and Silverwood was not a fit for us. The water rides were fun, but a bit short, and the rollercoasters were too much for my 15 year old daughter, who ended up in tears. Her and I ended up sitting and waiting for the others to try out...

My husband and I came to Scarywood for the first time the Friday before Halloween. We had purchased tickets the week before online. We got there right at 7p when the gates opened, and it wasn't too crowded. We surpassed the zombie train attraction because the wait was already at 2 hours (apparently it's a 30 minute "ride" and it's... More

We actually arrived a bit late (around 9:30) on the final night of Scarywood. It was cold, foggy, wet - and incredible. We decided to skip the zombie train from the beginning, and because of it had time to do almost all the rides we wanted. Riding coasters in thick fog, waiting for dubstep 3Dementia in the drizzle, clowns popping... More

Got there at 6:40 immediately got in line for the train waited 2 1/2 hours in line. Once on the train we couldn't hear the actors at all. (The entire experience required you to listen to them so we were completely clueless to the plot line) walked to the next attraction... after seeing the length of the line we walked... More

Scarywood is a real treat to visit. First time attending this year and as a grown man, I screamed more than I'd care to admit. Fun for both parties that came. Highly recommend. Staff put in an commendable effort to make this night amazing.

THIS IS A Scarywood REVIEW ONLY. This was my first time going. I enjoyed all the special effects and different employees around the park. (I am trying not to give too much away). Here is what I can tell you. I went on a night that it was pouring rain. I dressed appropriate and still had a great time! I... More

We visited silver wood for the 4th time this summer and as always we came early for the amusement park and waited until it warmed up for the boulder beach part with it being a water park it needs to be warmer for the best experience. The roller coasters are awesome as well.
