ATHOL, Idaho — Vicky Richardson is going to be up this morning.
And then back up.
“Life is too short not to have fun,” the Bayview woman said.
Richardson plans to be among the first into Silverwood Theme Park and ride Panic Plunge 50 consecutive times.
Not even a forecast of heavy rain will deter her.
“I will bring rain gear,” Richardson said.
Silverwood opens for the season at 11 a.m. today.
“We are looking forward to celebrating our 35th anniversary with guests this weekend and all summer long,” said Stephanie Sampson, public relations manager.
The park, about 20 miles north of Coeur d'Alene just off U.S. 95, has more than 70 rides, slides, shows and attractions.
This summer, it will offer about 1,500 jobs paying in the range of about $16 an hour to $21.
To fill that many posts, Silverwood gets creative with incentives, such as bus rides to and from work, bonuses and pizza days.
