Today we're continuing to look at the newly opened parks for the 2018 at Silverwood park. This great park is always amazing but there's just something about opening days that are special.

Once you park, you head down to the tunnel under I95.
Food and drinks to fuel the day
Waterpark opening soon
A really fun park included with admission.
Just inside the gate
To the left- the train depot, to the right, the Carousel.
Right at the center of things- you can rent strollers, wheelchairs, and ECVs here.
Good to know- you can do your shopping for souvenirs without missing out on ride time.
Great deal for feeding a family here.
Phantasm at Theater of Illusion is an excellent magic show, too.
Waiting for opening
We're held right at the entrance to the Country Carnival portion of the park.
Words to live by
This is a pretty park, with plenty of flowers
The ice cream is ENORMOUS and yummy, and they've got well maintained pinball machines and arcade games. I will not detail just how much I spent playing TRON and Whirlwind pinball.
My favorite ride at this park is Tremors. It's got some fun signage along the ride.
This is a fun drop ride. This bird just kept circling.
Tremors - An excellent wooden rollercoaster that uses tunnels and low turns to feel even faster than it really is.
Tremors and Spin Cycle - This is one of the backdrops on my computer - two great rides in one shot
They mean it!
Camp scene - Detail along the pathway
Thunder Canyon - A thoroughly soaking rapids ride.
This classic ride still gets quite a lot of riders.
For the Arrow fans out there.
This is the curve leading to the double inversion
Detail at the Train Depot
A beautiful Porter engine pulls in to the station
Absolutely beautiful engine, cared for nicely.
Main Street Theatre - Showing Three Stooges movies makes me REALLY love this place.
This isn't just a loop around the park- it's an adventure. There are a lot of things to take in while aboard the train, so be sure to listen up.
One of the first things you'll spot from aboard the train.
Be on the lookout! Sasquatch sightings!
I believe he found one
Supplies! Feel free to beat me for that joke, at your next convenience.
Um, you MIGHT want to look behind you.
Sasquatch is just hungry
Then there's the Faerie Woods...
View of Aftershock and Tremors from the train
Excellent drop ride. Feels like it isn't gonna stop at the bottom.
Timber Terror - A good 'starter woodie' that is fun for any kind of coaster rider.
This is a wicked ride! It swings back and forth, while turning around. Then it goes OVER the top- sometimes you wind up upside down, and still turning around the outside of the ring- pretty wild ride.
Great flatride collection - In this shot, you can see the Paratrooper and Bumper Boats.
At the end of the day... Back down to the tunnel back to the parking lot (or Campgrounds/RV Center if you're staying there)
We'll be back soon, with more photos of more of the park.
Matt just happened to be making a family trip to Idaho and wouldn't you know it, that meant he'd be at Silverwood the day of the eclipse. Lucky us!!
Not a whole lot of the eclipse here however, just an awesome looking park

Welcome to Silverwood!!
How about starting off with a coaster that a lot of us have already ridden. Hey Knott's Fans!! The Corkscrew is still alive and looking great!!
Knott's fans aren't the only ones who can visit a former coaster. Hey Six Flags Great America fans!!!
Of course the park is chock full of rides that didn't begin their lives somewhere else.
Including Tremors of course
A good idea on ANY ride. =)
Who doesn't love a good Tilt-A-Whirl
Honestly not sure if this is a part of the park or one of Matt's other pics, either way it's awesome. - Gregg
