CONTEST CLOSED!! We’ll announce results shortly.
When Tremors opened at Silverwood Theme Park 14 years ago, it was seriously fast.
At speeds exceeding 65 mph, it outzipped existing coasters like the Timber Terror and the Corkscrew, making it a definite must-ride for fans of high-speed fun.
Since then, Aftershock has passed it in terms of sheer speed and g-force, but Tremors still remains a favorite attraction for any trip to Silverwood Theme Park. It’s the only coaster that goes underground and has its own gift shop.
And it’s also the only coaster where you can get a photo of yourself aboard – right around one bend, a camera will snap your photo and capture forever your expression – perhaps it’s sheer terror, perhaps you’re screaming in terror or happiness. Maybe you’re squeezing your eyes tight trying to keep your lunch down. Or maybe you’ve taken the effort to do an extra creative pose. Whatever the case, we want to see it!
From now until Aug. 1, Spokane 7 and Silverwood Theme Park are inviting people to share their favorite Tremors photos and memories. If you have multiple ones taken over the year, send them along too!
We also would love to hear your stories! Even if you don’t have a photo of you aboard the coaster, share your experiences, along with a photo of you from anywhere in the park. What was your first ride like? What has been your best experience? Have you hit the hundred-ride mark? Did you make a goofy face? How did you talk the rest of your family into riding? Have you ridden it backwards at Scarywood?
To thank everyone for their support of Tremors over the years, Silverwood Theme Park is offering some great prizes.
The top essay or photo will receive a season pass to use all through 2015.
The second-place winner will receive a four-pack day pass, so themselves and three guests can come and enjoy the park – especially Tremors – any one day in the 2014 season.
