When you and/or your family want to take a break form the Sasquan World Science Fiction Convention or, better yet, extend your vacation a few days, Silverwood Theme Park, just outside Coeur d’Alene, Idaho, is only 47 miles from Spokane.
With over 65 rides, slides, shows, and attractions, Silverwood is the largest amusement park in the Pacific Northwest. You have your choice of 5 roller coasters (Tremors, Timber Terror, Panic Plunge, Aftershock, and Corkscrew)* to pick for studying just how well you would do under gravitational stress. Enjoy plunging towards the Earth at speeds of up to 65 miles an hour. And combine this with a water park that includes waterslides and a beach.
A number of the Sasquan convention hotels, as well as Costco, offer discount tickets.
For information see the Silverwood Theme Park website.
* Roller coasters subject to change over time.
