With Halloween just around the corner, it is time for Silverwood Theme Park in Athol to be transformed into Scarywood—a place filled with haunted attractions and roaming monsters sure to send chills down your spine!

Running each Thursday, Friday and Saturday now through October 27, Scarywood provides five “haunts” including 3Dementia, Blood Bayou, Pharaoh’s Curse, Planet Zombie and Total Darkness. Also included in your price of admission are “scare zones”—Clown Town, Crime Scene, The Crypts, The Dollhouse, The Scarywood Nest and The Scarecrow Corner.

For those seeking their thrills on the rides, there will be several open including the Log Flume, Panic Plunge, Scrambler, Spincycle, Super Round-Up, Tilt-a-Whirl, Tremors and the always-popular Timber Terror.

The cost of admission ranges from $26 to $49 depending upon the night and whether you purchase tickets online or at the gate. On the final weekend, October 25 through 27, if you are a firefighter, active military, veteran, police or EMT and provide proper identification at the front gate, you will receive free entrance during Heroes Weekend.

If you have a group of 25 or more, you will be eligible to receive a significant discount on entrance into Scarywood. To book a group, which must be done at least 72 hours in advance, call 208.216.4300 or email [email protected].

Be advised that Scarywood is not recommended for children 12 and younger. No costumes or masks of any kind are allowed and there is no re-entry into the park after admitted.
