I am thrilled to bring an opportunity of a lifetime to you, thanks to my friends at Silverwood Theme Park www.silverwoodthemepark,com  

First, I would like to take a minute to tell you about Silverwood Theme Park (STP), and a few of the events they sponsor for children and their families.
Located in beautiful North Idaho, Silverwood Theme Park has over sixty-five rides, slides, shows and attractions, including four roller coasters!  Boulder Beach Water Park, a steam engine train, live entertainment, restaurants and so much more!
They have a theme park unlike any I have ever experienced!  In addition to a theme park filled with various, incredible rides and engaging events, right next door is Boulder Beach Water Park, encompassing an astounding twenty-one acres!  Pictures and words cannot possibly do it justice; to see it in person is astounding, and literally takes my breath away!
Silverwood Theme Park seeks to bring the best to their visitors, assuring you have an experience unlike any other, and this year they have surpassed this with the addition of an amazing new ride - this one is the first of it's kind in the world! At one hundred and four feet tall, the thrill ride has cylindrical-shaped vehicle seats that hold twenty-four people, facing outward, with their legs left dangling. They are supported by a harness as the vehicle rotates three hundred and sixty degrees, at thirteen revolutions per minute!  At the same time, the entire vehicle is swinging like a giant pendulum, until you are upside down, suspended over one hundred-four feet above ground level!  Riders are then brought all the way around, to repeat again, at over three and a half times the normal gravitational pull!  This is a ride unlike no other - a statement of fact - as it is the only of it's kind in the world!  To see a video of this ride, click HERE
SIlverwood Theme Park, in an effort to make their park available to all children and their families, has also sponsored two wonderful events:
  • Essay and Art Contest: Silverwood and the Spokesman-Review have teamed up for a wonderful essay contest.  They invite all students, including those involved with an accreditated home school program, in the Greater Northwest (Washington, Idaho, Oregon, BC or Montana) to write a one-hundred to five-hundred word essay describing a person in their life who would greatly benefit from a trip to Silverwood Theme Park!  In your essay, tell us why they would love a free trip - and you, your immediate family, and the special person will receive passes to the Silverwood!  You can find out more information on submitting your essay, including the rules  HERE
  • Family-A-Day:  Another wonderful Silverwood sponsored item is their Family-A-Day Giveaway.  Do you know of a family that deserves a fun-filled day at Silverwood Theme Park?  Enter their contest by clicking HERE  (The submission must be completed by someone eighteen or older.)
In addition to an amazing rides, a water park which would make a dolphin drool, incredible family entertainment, and events, Silverwood has graciously agreed to allow me to give away five (5) pairs of tickets to their wonderful establishment! That means you, and someone of your choosing, can go to Silverwood yourselves, experience the thrill first hand - experience the fun fist hand, experience the terror.....first hand.  
If you are interested in an opportunity to visit Silverwood Theme Park, to experience a day of pee in your pants excitement, enter the drawing below! Silverwood has asked that I run the drawing for a one-week period of time.  After which, Rafflecopter will draw the five winners.  I will then contact you to arrange to mail your tickets to you!!  How easy is that?!  Remember, this contest is open to all - whether you have visited Silverwood Theme Park in the past or not.  For each item you complete in the contest, which are as easy as clicking a link, you are granted the listed amount of entries!

I can assure you, Silverwood is an experience like no other.  When they say it is "The Northwest's Largest Theme Park," they are not kidding, or over-exaggerating!  To see it in person is astounding!
If you are interested in seeing some videos showing Silverwood Theme Park, their rides, the grounds, and other exciting events, click HERE to see some amazing videos!
In ending, I would like to give a BIG SHOUT OUT, and an even bigger thank you, to Silverwood Theme Park. The people I have worked with at Silverwood are some of the best in the industry - I have never felt more welcomed than at Silverwood Theme Park, where I am not simply a visitor, but part of a big, extended family.  I hope you have the opportunity to visit Silverwood and see for yourself.  What better cue to our drawing below....good luck, and to those who are fortunate enough to win tickets....bring Dramamine!  LOL  =)

Thank you Silverwood Theme Park!  What you did for my family, what you do for families, marks people's lives in ways you cannot possibly imagine. You are not simply a theme park, but a place where fond memories are created; memories which will last through childhood and beyond.  For this, and so much more, we thank you!  You are an asset to our community.



Big Hugs,

Shelbie Knight =)

  2. My favorite memory...thats very hard. I went to Silverwood quite a bit when I was younger (when only the Corkscrew and, back then, the Grizzly where there) as a friends sister worked there and would always give us tickets. We had a blast and it was an awesome part of my childhood.
    A more recent memory would be 4yrs ago. My brother worked there and got all of us in with his tickets. At the time my daughter was 4mo old. I remember floating the lazy river with her while she slept. It was the perfect time to relax with a newborn and keep cool!

  9. I have a lot of favorite memories at Silverwood. One year I went with my friend Jenna and we had a blast playing in the kiddie park at boulder beach. She is afraid of rides so I didn't get to go on too many of them, but we also had our pictures taken in the place where you dress up as western folk. This was in my early 20's and I still have the picture!

  10. WAY back when Silverwood's main attraction was the log ride my Grandpa didn't know to duck at the end and he got TOTALLY soaked! He was such a sweet man and I think of him every time I ride the log ride! Paige A.

  11. I have never been to Silverwood before. Your post made me think about how wonderful it would be to take my kids there. Being a divorced mother of two teenaged boys and a full time student working toward my teaching certificate makes things like this impossible on my budget. Maybe I could win some free tickets and make some memories with my kids as well. Heres to hope :)

  16. My favorite memory from silver wood is four years ago me and my best friend Katie bought a teddy bear from one of the shops and the whole day she wore it on her head, well the silverwood workers on the train ride played along with it all day every time they seen the bear on her head the said "mam calm down there is a wild animal on your head!" and would "shoot" it. It was literally the best day ever.

  18. What a great blog you have here and I look forward to following. My favorite memory of Silverwood center around family. I have only been twice, but once was with my brother (who I am not all that close to). It was a real chance for us to reconnect as we played all day in the water park. I will always remember that day. The other time was with my two girls who absolutely love the place and beg to return. Hopefully soon. Thank you for the cool giveaway.

  20. It's been a long time since I've been to Silverwood, but when I was about 10 years old I went with my friend to the park. It was when the Grizzly roller coaster was just opening. We waited over 4 hours in the hot sun just to be able to enjoy a 2 minute ride. It was well worth it and we had a blast!

  21. My favorite memory at silverwood was my first time going. It was around the 4th of July so there were little to no lines. We would go from one ride to the other right as the finished. We are planning on going this coming Sunday and I am extremely excited :)

  37. What is your favorite memory at Silverwood Theme Park?
    I think my favorite memory was visiting the park when boulder beach had just been added. It was such a great day to spend with my family & forget every worry I had. I swam almost all day and when it got darker I went to Coaster Alley! I rode until the park was closing and I didn't want to leave! I hope I get another chance to relive all the wonderful memories Silverwood has brought me.
