Silverwood Theme Park

Price: $ [1-5]

The sprawling water park here is only one nation of the Fun Empire that is Silverwood Theme Park, off Highway 95 in Athol. It even has its own geography — Avalanche Mountain, Boulder Beach Bay, Rumble Falls. Over at Velocity Peak, you can hit 55 miles per hour in nothing but your trunks. Polliwog Park makes sure the kiddies never dry out. But Elkhorn Creek is where you’ll find us — cruising gently along the lazy river in an inner tube. (If only they served Rum Cannonballs…) (JS)
