News & Rumors


Athol, Idaho




icon_STOPPark News - (4/20/15) Ouch! According to the local news the official Facebook page of the Silverwood theme park was hacked on Saturday and began posting links to a number of "adult" content websites. Looking at what is posted now, there is an official apology from the park about the event which says they are working with Facebook to try and recover the original page. Looks like the old page has been deleted from the system and replaced with a new one until they determine if they can restore the content of the old one, pre-hack.
    (10/24/14) Roller Coaster Alley has posted a great trip report and review of Scarywood, the Halloween event at Silverwood.
    (9/2/14) A fire broke out at Silverwood last weekend that has been determined to have been caused by a discarded lit cigarette. The fire broke out in a restroom building at the Boulder Beach waterpark, which destroyed the building before firefighters could put out the blaze.


2015 - Fly Away Hot Air Balloon - Confirmed - (1/29/14) Another family ride was already selected to be added for the 2015 season, the Fly Away Hot Air Balloon.


???? - New Wooden Coaster - Rumor - (12/2/13) According to comments reported at IAAPA, Rocky Mountain Coasters says they have an idea for a new coaster project for Silverwood that they hope to build for the park in the future. It’s something they are excited to build, but have no timeline for it set yet.
    (4/25/12) Screamscape sources tell us that the proposed Rocky Mountain Coaster project for Silverwood will be delayed for at least a year or two, so don’t look for it until 2014 or 2015.
    (11/22/11) According to Screamscape sources, there is a chance that the new custom built wooden coaster project from Rocky Mountain Coasters coming in 2013 just may be for Silverwood. It’s a bit too early to say for sure, but if true, this coaster could also have some stand-out unique features that will put Silverwood really on the map.


???? - New Ice Palace - Rumor Only - (4/16/11) I don’t know how serious this is, but a rumor posted to Roller Coaster Alley mentions that the park’s Ice Palace will have it’s last show in it this season, and then will be used only as a Scarywood haunt and as Scarywood prop storage in the future. However, they also claim that plans for a new Ice Palace are in the works at some point in the future.
