Summer is about having fun, spending time outdoors, and creating family memories that will last a lifetime. One of our family's favorite summer activities is going to Silverwood and Boulder Beach.
The great thing about having a theme park and a water park at the same location... Silverwood Theme Park + Boulder Beach Water Park = one admission price = both parks!
We get season passes to Silverwood every year, have for the past 11 years. We only live about 15 minutes away, so it is the perfect summer time activity for our family. We go for a few hours, have a blast and then come home.
The carousel is just inside the main gate at the entrance of the park. From the time our kids were little (1 1/2 years old), they knew that this ride was our very last stop in the park before heading home. It made it easy to leave the park this way - no fits! Now at ages 14 and 11, we still ride the carousel once or twice before heading home - it's a tradition!
Of course we love the rides and water slides, but we also love the variety of other fun activities like the magic show, train robbery on the steam engine ride, seeing the bison, and the adorable and friendly mascots; Garfield and Odie! Even though my children weren't always fond of them (they can be quite intimidating for the little ones), Garfield and Odie are always happy to pose for photos, give hugs, hand shakes, and high 5's!
