Be a Kid With Your Kid at Silverwood Theme Park & Boulder Beach Water Park ~ 2019 Summer Giveaway!

Summer is finally here!  That means 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 Theme Park and Boulder Beach Water Park.   

Located in beautiful North Idaho, Silverwood Theme Park is the Pacific Northwest's largest theme park, with over 70 rides, slides, shows and attractions, including four roller coasters, Boulder Beach Water Park, a steam engine train ride through the woods, live entertainment, magic shows, restaurants, and so much more. 

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!   The park has five main areas: Main Street, Country Carnival, Coaster Alley, Garfield's Summer Camp and Boulder Beach Water Park!

For 11 straight years, we purchased season passes to Silverwood for our family for Christmas. We only live about 15 minutes away, so it is the perfect summer time activity for our family.  As our children got older and started participating in sports and other activities, it wasn't as easy for us to enjoy it as much and as often. 

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 15 and 12, we still ride the carousel once or twice before heading home - it's a tradition!

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!
