Silverwood Theme Park is an amusement park in Athol, Idaho, USA.


Silverwood Amusement Park was opened on June 20, 1988 by Gary Norton. On opening, the attraction included an aviation museum and the Silverwood Central Railway.[1] For the 1990 season, it was expanded into an amusement park with the addition of several rides, including the Corkscrew which had been purchased from Knott's Berry Farm.[2]

The park opened the Boulder Beach water park in 2003.[3]

The park was expected to open for its 2020 season on May 30. Due to the coronavirus pandemic, precautions were in place and guests must purchase their tickets online. Rides would be sanitized between use and queues would operate in a socially distant manner.[4]
