Sorry Larry, there is nothing on them that indicates the date. Judging from the artistic style I would guess sometime in the later 40’s.


No problem Shane, I just want to be accurate when I add nostalgia to the Park Index

As promised, here is more or Silverwood Theme Park in Idaho. I wish there was more I could say about this small park, but quite honestly I don't know too much about it. I have visited it a couple of times and always love riding the Corkscrew because it takes me back to the Roaring 20's of Knott's. Anyone know of any interesting facts or history of this park? Please share.

Wow, looks awesome! I'm doing my first visit to Silverwood this Memorial Day weekend and it looks a LOT different from what I'm expecting. I wish most parks still had this type of look and feeling :?r

There was a special that aired in 2001 on Discovery Channel called "More Top Ten Coasters." It had the very lovely Elissa Alvey on Montu. Please tell me you have the video cause if you could upload it, It would help GREATLY.

There is just no way to not read that statement and not have it sound creepy. "It would help GREATLY." With what exactly? And, no, you don't have to answer that question here. It's more of a rhetorical thingy.

c’mon Robb, certainly you can’t think I was serious?!?!?! I know both the Corkscrew and Silverwood weren’t around in the 40’s. I meant the stylist look of the brochure seems like it came out of the 1940’s.
