North of COEUR D'ALENE, Idaho -

It's been four years of gruesome thrills, haunting scares and horrifying screams, but on year five, Silverwood Theme Park will SCARE THE YELL OUT OF YOU as it transforms into Scarywood Haunted Nights opening this Friday October 4th and continuing throughout the month ending the weekend of November 1st & 2nd. Be aware: Scarywood has more scares than anyone can experience in just one night. Be sure to plan a second night.

Scarywood was recently featured on The Travel Channel and voted as one of the top haunts in the nation. It was such a resounding success in 2012, with attendance increasing from the previous year, the park will again be investing in new attractions for 2013. In addition to some of Silverwood's most popular summer rides, Scarywood now boasts 11 new attractions and bone-chilling haunts as well as more scare zones scattered throughout the park with unforeseen haunts, creatures and ghouls concealed in fog, strategically placed to keep our guests on the edge of panic and fright.

What was formerly the Terror Canyon Trail (Thunder Canyon raft ride) will again be drained and converted into a NEWLY-THEMED attraction called The Ancient Ruins where you will meander through the twisted darkness into a maze of your worst nightmares.

3-Dementia, a 3-D attraction (3-D glasses provided), has been relocated to the southern end of Scarywood and drastically improved. 3-Dimentia is based on a once pleasant fun zone gone horribly wrong, which gave rise to a distorted mass of anarchy. What lies around each corner, one never knows.

Blood Bayou, the forest-themed haunted attraction - unlike anything the Northwest has ever seen - was constructed in 2010 in the museum building which lies just north of Main Street. New scenes to intensify the terror will be added in 2013. You'll be scared with every twist and turn of this diabolical scream machine of a haunt!

The Zombiewood Express - Mild-mannered Steam Engine No. 7 will once again transform into a fortified zombie hunting machine that will take you on an action-packed and sometimes humorous battle that only the fearless will survive. And, in 2013 new zombie adventures and stunts will keep you on edge.

October prices will vary based on the day you attend. Thursdays will be $25.99, Fridays $30.99, and Saturdays $39.99. Attendance will be limited. Guests can SAVE $5 on admission when purchasing tickets online at scarywoodhaunt.com. Buy in advance as some days may sell out. All of Scarywood's haunted attractions as well as other Silverwood rides including the jaw dropping Timber Terror Roller Coaster (which will be running backwards) will be open.

Also, included in the admission price is a free ticket to return to Silverwood in May 2014. For more information guests can log onto www.scarywoodhaunt.com or call (208) 683-3400.
