Our family loves Silverwood but we have learned that being unprepared no matter where we go, has the potential to ruin what should be a fun day. Here are my top tips to help make the most of your Silverwood experience.
Shoes: if you plan to get wet I recommend wearing comfortable shoes that are waterproof and that also strap around the heel. If you are doing both parks, there is a lot of walking involved so you want something that is comfortable and will stay on your child’s feet. You don’t need shoes at Boulder Beach but you do for all of the rides in the Theme Park and you will for sure get wet on the water rides. Nobody wants to walk around in soggy socks and tennis shoes!
Clothes: Wear layers. The mornings and evenings get chilly but the afternoons can be very hot. Wear clothes that are comfortable to walk and sit in. I recommend wearing synthetic clothes that dry quickly rather than cotton. My boys wear a swim shirt and shorts so they don’t have change.
Arrive at least 30 minutes early to the magic show to guarantee a good seat. Go during dinner or lunch to make the most of your time. Order pizza in the Theater of Illusion or take in your own food to eat while watching the show. (They even have gluten-free crust at no extra charge). The tables are great if you plan to eat but we think the bleachers are the best for seeing all of the magic tricks.
Stop by the ice creamery, the one scoop is ginormous!
Have a plan for strollers and wagons before getting in line.
Heartfelt blessings until next time,
Hello, my name is Cheree! I am a wife and mom. I own a business called Heartfelt Mamas, where I share motherhood struggles and teach self-care through blogging and social media. I have been married to my husband for 12 years, and we have two boys who are in 1st grade and preschool. Our family loves to explore the outdoors and find activities around the Spokane area. We do our best to cherish experiences over things. I have been to Silverwood as a kid, teenager, young adult, adult — and now as a parent too. I am an adrenaline seeker; roller coasters and thrill rides are my all time favorite! As a child, my dad and I would always try to find the rides that gave us the biggest adrenaline rush. Now my 6-year-old and I do the same. He is so excited to be tall enough for the big coasters this year!
Seriously, the ice cream is SUPER ginormous. And delicious!
Such great tips!!!!
This would be a great finish to the summer for me and my sister!
Thank you for the info! We haven’t been to silverwood yet and really want to and we have two young children so this helps a lot!
This would be a perfect date night for me and my husband when he comes home to visit from working!!
More common sense really.
We Love Silverwood and have spent many days there this summer.
We would like to see some improvements on the Train ride. A bigger fairy land with live actors, and staging of props. The opportunities are endless and some areas are unutilized.
Expansion of the Antique cars ride would be awesome as well, considering the wait is always long with boarding etc perhaps two tracks in opposite directions.
Thanks for the information , we are planning to go this weekend🎢
Loved reading all these helpful tips before my trip there, thank you so much!
Thank you so much for this article. I am loving all the information I did not know.
Great advice! I’d add to buy the SW plastic pop jugs at the beginning of your stay! Then you can use them for water if you stay additional days 🙂
Thanks SO much for the great tips. We are going tomorrow and these will be lifesavers!
