Silverwood Unveils Wild, New Ride

Silverwood Theme Park is adding a rotating, swinging behemoth of a thrill ride that will test riders’ courage and stomach strength, as well as a far gentler ride for kids and families. The park near Athol, Idaho, will spend $2.2 million on the new attractions and expects to have them up and running at the start of this season. The new addition to Silverwood’s extreme rides will stand 104 feet tall – 20 feet taller than the Timber Terror coaster – and sling 24 riders upside like a catapult, while also spinning them around. “Riders are upside down, sitting in their seats, upside down again, over and over and over repeatedly,” said Nancy DiGiammarco, marketing director for the theme park/Scott Maben, SR.
