Silverwood Theme Park in Idaho is one of the most fun things to do in Idaho with the family, thanks to its amazing selection of attractions and affordable rates. Travelers venturing out here are sure to have a great time, but they need to be sure to budget enough time. Silverwood Theme Park isn’t a park that can be seen reasonably in one day (especially if visitors want to fit in other adventurous attractions in Idaho).

With its main park and water park, travelers will have the best time making a two-day trip out of it to get the best out of it. Perhaps one day is devoted to the main park and the other is devoted to the water park or travelers split each between the main park and the water park. Either way, travelers will have a great time at Silverwood Theme Park.


Spend At Least Two Days At Silverwood Theme Park

When planning a trip to Silverwood Theme Park, travelers may be tempted to make a day trip out of it, but the park doesn’t open as early as parks such as Disney, so travelers would have to budget their time quite tightly or miss some parts of the park.

Because of this, It is highly recommended that those traveling to the Silverwood Theme Park spend at least two days at the park to get the most out of it. This also makes for a great weekend trip for theme park lovers or families looking for a fun outing.

Spending two days at the park is easy to do with a wide selection of hotels around the park. Travelers could even stay further away from the park since it doesn’t open early anyway.
