Photo TR: Scarywood 2010


Recommended Posts

Silverwood Theme Park in Athol, Idaho, transforms into Scarywood for the Halloween season. With notable attractions such as the Terror Canyon Trail, the Zombie Express, and backwards Timber Terror, Scarywood becomes one of the Northwest's largest Halloween attractions! Even though Boulder Beach, Aftershock, and several midway flat rides are closed, the rest of the park is outfitted with all kinds of Halloween theming and many actors roam throughout the park.

We reach the park late at night, but we find backwards Timber Terror lit up and ready to roll!

250.jpg.792f1477bf41c7578d3dfe5ff3237674.jpg

"We're in!"

251.jpg.72a06befa2d4b9ca7ad704aa8b01a33c.jpg

This thing greeted people rather warmly at the park entrance.

252.jpg.f832d275aa488f4fa95197814ab142e0.jpg

Later on, this guy would be juggling batons on fire!

258.jpg.80de9fced8bbfbcbd3abe5c39b2b1429.jpg

Waiting in line for the Zombie Express, this guy came up and scared the s**t out of people! But we weren't afraid.

267.thumb.jpg.074daa4b0ce6a1bdab090c4299bc34cb.jpg

See? I told 'ya he'd be juggling batons on fire!

268.jpg.ef7d2f935dc5d41d62f6f75c1f76115d.jpg

It's like Sir Toppem Hat gone Adam Lambert with pinkeye!

269.jpg.4090afea4f35ef772e65ab124bcf6e7a.jpg

As you can see, the train looks a bit different...

270.jpg.7097d62e5b2b9ccc1af8751b7df239dc.jpg

Nobody is covered with blood or has missing heads, so I assume all is good.

276.jpg.b225df00ff29b85a9e0ab8280be0b764.jpg

Just what we need: Elvis with a shotgun!

Mom was admiring the Swiss Cheese cobwebbing!

298.jpg.9b338e8f70d710f6ae83a9d660dab9ec.jpg

Hey, I think I see the bush guy right there. Lemmie get a picture to see if it's him. *FLASH* Yup, it's him.

300.jpg.d7a41f78387e7185cc4a84d8345be557.jpg

There was a LOT of fog on the pathways!

303.jpg.d4832d42fb5fdd3be81081d7581108c3.jpg

This shop seemed to be pretty popular during the whole weekend.

306.jpg.01df52e34c5fa23a8919b518c4055013.jpg

I told him to stop clowning around.

Photo op!

316.jpg.c5a6d1735d4c9c8cc0da1c3f5de25e40.jpg

I get a quick ride on Tilt-A-Whirl.

323.jpg.d80be954f698197a3fa7255d0cbc0121.jpg

Most of the rides on this section of the midway were operating and had their lights on.

Ready to get 'Screwed?

331.jpg.dcafc409cf4a053655513cfe08bfc915.jpg

An exclusive night shot of Corkscrew!

"I hear this may be leaving next year, so we might as well get our last credits on it..."

335.jpg.9ab0adbc7439174cc48b25457537676c.jpg

Getting 'Screwed... at night!

345.jpg.b89a43d49cbcdce1f65a78eec2786247.jpg

Normally, this would be Thunder Canyon...

348.jpg.4637062d3a467c29c5b2f0f6951544eb.jpg

...but for Scarywood it's become Terror Canyon Trail!

349.jpg.c4bd386b582ec7a892e4a4df21526848.jpg

And still the crappy lockers remain...

353.jpg.214cf6b96c3b73b7b9b93fdee2bf0ca9.jpg

The park looks pretty cool with all of these lights!

378.jpg.fe5cc711babec035c96196799494bc24.jpg

After the maze, I get a ride on Tremors.

380.jpg.364a678b71df0056c05e15f5a8f5fccf.jpg

Hey look! New signs! This one is the 2nd of 2 new ones.

383.jpg.9f4480c531090484fb5acc7ecc841fcc.jpg

Still can't get the 'Z00M!' shot.

384.jpg.484f5d47c806508048994e166209b423.jpg

This really was all you could see of Aftershock!

388.jpg.eb822a68cefc815b6561aa2233912ad2.jpg

The TT tree was still weird....

392.thumb.jpg.522cf861ccec7ad537ca0fb483eadfd5.jpg

Panic Plunge looks pretty awesome at night!

396.thumb.jpg.c940e61fc855b047869b99bafd3a92ef.jpg

Probably the best picture I took all night, and it's my current avatar!

403.jpg.d6559a740dc6710014a4522bb31145e2.jpg

"Bye bye Panic Plunge!"

410.jpg.3637fbee9dda7d445fb7986480598974.jpg

Here's the thing that greeted us warmly at the entrance when we walked in! He came back to say goodbye, too!

411.jpg.48b5704cc562120c762ea67a4a8c5d91.jpg

See 'ya tomorrow, Silverwood!

 

Part 2 will come soon! Thanks for reading! =)

How was Timber Terror backwards? I really enjoyed it when I rode it during the summer a couple years ago. That thing has some serious airtime! Too bad they didn't put Tremors or even Corkscrew backwards. Maybe they should put Aftershock backwards?!?!?!?!

^^^I agree, I like the news signs. I got a picture of the 1st one too, but it turned out blurry.

 

^^TT backwards was awesome! Even though the turns threw you to the side violently, airtime backwards > airtime forwards! I think they got the idea from SFMM, that's what a friend told me. Aftershock backwards would be interesting; wish it was open so I could ride it that way...

 

^Yeah, Silverwood has some pretty wacky yet awesome signs. I heard that they invested a lot too, and I agree, it was a lot of fun! That's great! Making coaster nerds one-at-a-time.

 

Day 2

419.jpg.86678c06139d58d56ffce28131cd57a8.jpg

We take a quick trip to Wal-Mart to get some stuff.

426.thumb.jpg.4d147a3fd392cbb8bf181a861e18fdf2.jpg

Then we go to Best Buy... and I immediatly get caught up with the iPad!

427.thumb.jpg.5f6e971afcfb366045de6ae04b83b774.jpg

For my friends on TST that are reading this, here's a lil' represent!

431.jpg.a33592e1d2bb285e2d26734d41593a43.jpg

Naturally, I get a little Aftershock time, since I can't get it at the park.

433.jpg.30566909bfd670c992707aab4a4fb905.jpg

As we head towards Marie Callendars, I notice this sign for Scarywood.

435.jpg.f243671b02d413007710ef73ad83e7ee.jpg

At Marie Callendars, we get some pie. Mom got Rhubarb and I got French Apple, and it was all really good!

438.jpg.2ef37446a295a4d85c6a921147b890eb.jpg

Funny bumper sticker I noticed.

"If I was an Alvey, I'd say this dinner at Chilis is gong to be better than regular sex!"

445.jpg.dbf5b8a6946621c4c3e8df708ff65fee.jpg

"We're ready to go!"

Bush Guy Credit #2.

448.jpg.299e3c767bfb7949fef974b4a57a0601.jpg

These hung clowns would randomly shake around...

449.jpg.9a9eacdd5c5f67e0c458fac38025c876.jpg

...and then a real one would pop out of nowhere!

453.jpg.165dd251bb483a1f9982691cb5bec79e.jpg

This guy again! This time he was on the midway by Corkscrew.

456.jpg.3381efb01aea7f9122febdfa70641932.jpg

The line was too long, so I didn't ride Corkscrew this time.

457.jpg.312ae9d7205fd1428f2a9d0df79340fa.jpg

This actor ACTUALLY danced with me! Kudos to Silverwood for awesome, interactive actors this year!

458.jpg.bbd9a5f9456b7cc48350e3f98c8a14a1.jpg

The Battle Zone area was converted into a snack stand for Scarywood.

459.jpg.94589a27de9975e93dd45ed74a22ed8e.jpg

A look at what you could buy and how much it cost to buy it.

460.jpg.9a8cf90e0d604446b8c14124969f17a0.jpg

I meet up with NorthWestCoasters at Panic Plunge.

462.jpg.e56fe1437cce859ef3f86a25003ce7e5.jpg

My arms hurt pretty badly after riding this.

464.jpg.354afc94b27ed607dae624b51b180eea.jpg

I ride Tremors again and get this interesting photo from the queue.

465.jpg.42a35c750edf25cf78a0cb2447ea1906.jpg

Then it began raining, and several rides closed.... and my camera began having problems (although I *THINK* it may have more to do with the fact that I dropped it...)

468.jpg.0b00596d4442db25beb96a877c68477b.jpg

Blood Bayou (or something like that) had this aweosme animitronic in it!

469.jpg.834bb9269ef8f0b91a03cdfc4c7591fb.jpg

We head over to backwards TT and get a quick ride in.

472.jpg.0535cb9599512aff780e4acb4b856a08.jpg

Group photo!

473.thumb.jpg.98ad1910f1c5c47687fc607f570a7c69.jpg

NorthWestCoasters had to leave, but I stayed...

475.thumb.jpg.51768a4372242d7521a6a9d6ce81167e.jpg

...and got 4 or 5 rides in on Panic Plunge.

476.jpg.f7c88b7755d2f32c3540f221fbbbdb23.jpg

The ride ops did a 'just OK' job at loading, but the wait time was still less than 10 minutes.

481.thumb.jpg.7ae025206022e465b4012aa181e1dc18.jpg

DROP!

482.jpg.e1d353bbb1ff94423b2de11a8ad26080.jpg

Final ride of the year!

483.thumb.jpg.70146fb9e6acfd33f0b9831da612c203.jpg

Goodbye, Panic Plunge!

484.jpg.ef4116cfa76e3a5958611322d9e483d0.jpg

Paratrooper wasn't operating, and they even took all the cars off!

485.jpg.0996388546851ea51fd6968c8e363664.jpg

We went to Susie's (I think, the one in the park), but it had already stopped serving big dinners, so I didn't get a chance to try it. =(

489.jpg.45e503e61cec5ea597a0a5a5307e4a07.jpg

Goodbye Scarywood!

 

Thanks for reading! =)
