Rides

While both parks offer great rides, it’s essential to know that each park offers a different “menu” of rides from each other. Those looking for a particular type of theme park experience may find an additional value between Silverwood and Triple Play in each park. Triple Play rides range from family-friendly attractions like mini-golf, go-karts, and their on-site water park, Raptor Reef, as well as laser tag and bowling. On the other hand, Silverwood shares many of these attractions, like a lazy river and an arcade. However, it ramps it with heart-pounding roller coasters like the Timber Terror and Tremor. For those looking for a nice family day out, Triple Play might be right. However, if you’re looking to push your limits, Silverwood may be the way to go. 

On-Site Amenities and Lodging

Silverwood and Triple Play offer guests great on-site amenities like dining and retail shopping outside the ride and attractions. However, they have a few differences when factoring in on-site lodging. Triple Play offers a hotel onsite that hosts 95 comfortable rooms and suites, complimentary deluxe breakfast each morning, and free high-speed wired and wireless internet access.

While Silverwood does have on-site lodging, it comes in the form of an RV Park. The Silverwood RV Park offers guest campsites ranging from 123 full hook-up sites to 41 tent-only sites. It’s important to know that the Silverwood RV park is limited seasonally from May 2nd through October 30th.
