i grew up going to Elitch's every summer. LOVE ME SOME MR. TWISTER, one of the best vintage woodies ever, especially in the rain

I never rode the original Mr Twister, but it is a shame to think about how great the original must of been, and how lame the reconstruction is. When rebuilding the ride, the park should have stuck more with the original plans, like Knoebels did. That is why Knoebels' Twister is awesome, while Elich's is only a shadow of what it could have been.

SILVERWOOD

Since Silverwood is celebrating 25 years, let's take a look back at this unique park, the park with the original Arrow Corkscrew.

I love Silverwood! Fantastic park that has some great wood! I especially liked the early on media, so old school, but so awesome. And thanks for making me feel old... I graduated in 1996....

Shane - Is there a year listed in small print for the first two brochures you posted? I see the last two are from '94 and '96.

thanks

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.
