More rides for young kids coming to Silverwood Theme Park

Silverwood Theme Park north of Coeur d’Alene is expanding again with more rides for younger children and families. The park will spend more than $1.2 million to nearly double its family entertainment area with three new rides – a kite glider, a giant puppy ride that barks on command, and a spinning family coaster – to open by this summer. Space for an additional ride  – a hot air balloon-themed attraction – will be prepared for a 2015 opening, and the kiddie Ferris wheel will be re-themed and moved to the new area, north of Garfield’s Summer Camp and east of the Butterflyer and Frog Hopper rides. New pathways with seating areas, trees and gardens will be added as well. Construction is expected to begin in February. Silverwood is the largest theme and water park in the Northwest. It opened in 1988. Information:

Travel Channel coming to Silverwood, will use footage for 2013 scary special

We received the following release about film crews coming to North Idaho's Silverwood Theme Park to shoot footage for a 2013 Halloween special:

North of Coeur d'Alene, ID – The Travel Channel will be filming portions of Scarywood throughout Silverwood Theme Park on Wednesday, Oct. 24 for a special segment airing in next year's episode of “Halloween's Scariest Thrills.”

Scarywood has been chosen as one of the top 24 in the nation!

Their focus will be Timber Terror running backwards, The Zombiewood Express Train Ride, as well as, the numerous other attractions and scare zones at Scarywood.

Their producers have asked us to identify a number of guests who would be willing to interview with them and talk about Scarywood on camera.  If you’re at Scarywood Wednesday, Oct. 24, and you see the camera crew, don’t hesitate to ask the Scarywood staff person if you can interview.

That is all.
