what a great little park. I think I enjoy the smaller parks more so than the gluttony-filled Six Flags-Disney parks, although I recently lifted my 24-year boycott on Disney, so we'll see. The coasters look great, at any rate (Don't understand the first time through the trees thing i keep seeing here; will have to ask the translator)


It's funny. I hadn't even heard of a Rock-O-Plane until last year when our town's anorexic county fair had one, but have been riding Sky Divers for decades. Am glad to see that this flat is still living a good life somewhere...less so for the Corkscrew of Pain (my first ever credit at age 8 or something), but historical relevance is also a big one in my book.


Gross side note: I lived in Hutchinson, KS for years, where the Kansas State Fair is held every Sept., and the Sky Diver was always on the periphery of the midway, butt-up against the hideously-crowded "kidway."

While this seems fine in theory, the flat was always called (by riders) the "Sky Puker" , for obvious reasons, and invariably, some poor parent watching their kids on the kiddie rides would be standing under the the rotating-down end of the Diver and get coated. I know..TMI, but it was funny in a warped sense.


I digress. thanks for the virtual trip and hope to see you all when PT is done!

Great trip report Jimmy. Silverwood may not be the greatest park in the world but it knows how to set up a skyline (at least with the woodies). I've lived in Montana for over 17 years now and last year was my first visit to Silverwood, coming from CA I can't say that I was in a big hurry to go. However I was pleasantly surprised when I went. Small park with great potential, beautiful natural surroundings and pleasant people. This year the Mr. and I plan on taking our two oldest children. This will be there first Big coaster tryouts, it just maybe what I need to post my first trip report. So Jimmy if you will be up again in August let me know.

When I saw the PTR, I looked in because the name seemed familiar. Then I saw it and I knew why. If ever I get the chance to go up North to where my dad and Mimae (Gramma) live, I'd be able to go to this park. I think I might check it out next Summer. Maybe actually finally ride a good woodie.
