Park News - (4/29/15) Silverwood wants everyone to know that they will open the gates for the 2015 season on Saturday, May 2nd. They also mentioned something I did not know… that when the park was being built back in 1987, it wasn’t a theme park… it was known as the “Henley Aerodrome & Museum of Transportation”. By the time it opened in 1988, the concept and name had changed to the Silverwood Theme Park name that we know today.
2016 - Riptide Racers - (3/5/16) Silverwood has finally named their new six-lane mat racer slide as Riptide Racer.
(10/22/15) Silverwood has announced that the park will add a "Giant Water Slide" for the 2016 season. The park will have a contest later to name the slide, but it will be a six-lane mat racer style slide standing nearly 60 feet tall and over 400 feet long, starting things off with a twisting enclosed tube before all the lanes align for the downhill finale.
