Silverwood Theme Park announced today it is set to open its gates the weekend of May 30 and 31, and Silverwood and Boulder Beach will be open for daily operation beginning June 6.

“I want to personally thank our loyal guests for their patience and support during these unprecedented times,” Silverwood owner Gary Norton said in a news release.

“Safety is our No. 1 priority, and that is why we have developed extensive social distancing and cleaning protocols to reduce the risks to guests and employees as much as possible during their time at the park.”

Idaho and the local health district have approved Silverwood to open during Phase 3 of the Idaho Rebounds Plan. Click here for the full statement with details of the updates, policies and procedures regarding the health and safety of Silverwood guests and employees.

Silverwood is the Northwest’s largest theme park located in Athol about 15 minutes north of Coeur d’Alene and features more than 70 rides, slides, shows and attractions.

During the summer, Boulder Beach Water Park features wave pools, water slides, children’s water features, VIP cabanas and a lazy river. For more information and to purchase tickets, go to silverwoodthemepark.com.
