Silverwood Theme Park version 3.0

Scarywood 2012 Photo Trip Report from our October 13th Visit!

Page 1


It's hard to believe October is here, and already half-way over with. Leaves changing colors, summer coming to a close, and Silverwood's fourth transformation into Scarywood Theme Park! For 2012, we had much to look forward to, including the anticipation of both a new scare zone, and a new haunt. How did it measure up to previous years? Well, we won't spoil it just yet. Let's get to the photos!

We made our trip to the park this year on Saturday, October 13th. The forecast had been threatening rain all week long, so we came fully prepared. Lucky for us, we ended up with another dry evening at the park. Unlike the weather, however, the crowds were just as we expected them to be - very large! Here you can see the entire courtyard area jam-packed full of people before the gates were opened. Take it from us folks - get to the park as early as you can!

Moving inside, we'll start with the area out by Terror Canyon, which is one of our favorite spots in the park.

And it was as sick-looking as ever - with spider-webs and giant eight-legged creatures covering every square inch of the start of the maze.

Silverwood really does a great job with this set!

The storyline remained the same as in 2011, with an abandoned campsite out front and a girl scout troop bus that looked like it had just been through an episode of "The Walking Dead".

The queue was a bit more decorated this year than we remembered. It looks great! While waiting in line, you'll hear the familiar radio broadcast interrupted by the special report of the missing girl scout troop, and the local law enforcement office looking for volunteers.

Inside the maze, we found a lot more scenery and themeing than 2011. While the actors and the story were very much the same, the walk through seemed very different, with trees, bushes, and shrubs crowding the entire path. In the past, there were sections that felt very "open" with a wide path - this year the trail was much more narrow and tight. This gave Terror Canyon Trail a much different (and better) feel. It also allowed for better scares, as the actors could more easily hide, and we couldn't see very far ahead of where we were. Nicely done!

Moving on - the entire park was wonderfully decorated as always. This year it seemed even more bales of hay, scarecrows, corn stalks, and jack-o-lanterns filled every corner of the park.

The pathway alongside the Magic Show Theater - food was served inside as usual.

Giant spider-webs covered every wall.
