  • 2 adults and 2 children visited after driving from Snoqualmie. We bought 2 day passes and went to the water park the first day and the amusement park the second. The one thing that struck us about bot...  more »

  • Man, where to start? This park is very family-friendly. I have several amazing observations and only one or two (pretty minor) gripes. First, the “amusement parks” where we are from (metro Seattle) ar...  more »

  • Pretty awesome place. A lot if things to do. You will probably need 2 days to explore both the theme park and water park. Best to visit during the week. Avoid weekends at all costs. What I noticed was that the whole park was ran by teenagers and some of them looked like they didn't hit puberty yet. The staff seemed like they were programmed. No emotion, it's like they didn't want to be there. Safety is taken very seriously, which is good. My only issue was the kid rides. They were really brief. Even the kids (not including mine) were disappointed how short the rides were. There were no lines, just extend the ride time. Kids had to get off the ride, literally walk around, get on and ride again 5 times to have fun.
  • INCREDIBLE.. I have been to many theme parks & I can honestly say this place has the most fantastic staff I have ever seen. The employees made waiting in lines, buying food or just asking directions a pleasant friendly experience. So impressed as this was our "victory dance" vacation. After surviving a brain tumor & out living the doctors prediction by 8 yrs. My adult children & my first grandchild put a victory vacation together for us all. I am so happy it was here where I feel the staff were celebrating with us. So positive & helpful they have all been. Bottom line .. Silverwood is the place to be. Good job all of you.
  • Great fun at a great price! You can get a 3 day pass for the price of a single day at most other major theme parks. Admission gets you in to both the theme park and water park. Food is reasonably priced, and have great portion sizes. The 2 wooden coasters are fast and fun! The Aftershock was one of the best rides I've ever been on! And if you go on Thunder Canyon, wear sandals and be prepared to get wet! Bolder Beach water park is a great way to beat the heat. Get their early to grab a spot for the day. So many great slides to ride for all ages. The lazy river is a good way to unwind and cool off. Parking was reasonable at $5/day. Don't miss the magic show, and get there early to grab a table, so you can enjoy a pizza with the show.
  • It was our own fault going on Labour Day Weekend. We have been before and had a great time, however, this last trip was a disappointment, after a 6 and a half hour drive to get there. We don't mind the crowds and braced ourselves for it. The park is not efficient enough to deal with large crowds. Lines for food is a crawl. We showed up an hour and a half early to get a table for the Magic Show and there were still no tables available or space for our family to sit, so we never did get to see it. We searched for a place for our two families of 8 to eat and ended up at the BBQ place, they were sold out of almost everything, this was only on the Saturday. The grounds are immaculate, I found the staff to hold safety to standard, but not overly friendly. We did enjoy the rides and slides we did actually get to go on. But, we will never go back during the weekend ever again.
  • This place is awesome. They have rides for young and old, ones that are fast and others that are slow, wet and dry. Since it is family run and to keep prices down many of the staff are very young so be patient with them. Remember to pack clothes to change into if you don’t want to stay wet. Food is good and star stores are fun!
