To celebrate its 30th anniversary, Silverwood Theme Park has announced some new additions to the park for its 2018 season, which begins Saturday.

For one, Silverwood will extend its hours for the month of June. Starting June 9, the park will be open until 9 p.m. Sundays through Thursdays and 10 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays.

The old toy store has been expanded into the space formerly occupied by Old Tyme Muggs and will now offer Garfield memorabilia and park souvenirs, and

Garfield will make appearances and be available to take photos.

Magician Nick Norton has a new show planned for the 2018 season, which will include favorite tricks, Dr. Cosmos and a never-been-done illusion during which Norton will make an audience member disappear.

Marshall Jack is also returning to Silverwood this season, guiding guests on Steam Engine No. 7 around the park while dodging the occasional train robber and new mythical creatures.

Finally, the restrooms between the Theatre of Illusion and Sweet Treats and near the Picnic Pavilions have been renovated.

As a special nod to the parks founding in 1988, guests can get into the park for $19.88 on Saturday and Sunday.
