It looks like Silverwood isn't the only park in the northwest that's getting something big for this year, since today Wild Waves dropped this tweet.
Judging by the silhouette at the bottom of the image, I'd guess they'll be getting a drop tower of sorts. If that's the case, what manufacturer are they going with? Will they go with A.R.M like Silverwood did? Or go with somthing like Intamin who's no stranger to building bigger drop towers?

It's an Enterprise AND a drop tower! I heard a rumor that it's supposed to be an S&S Double Shot, which sounds awesome, and I am super excited to finally ride an Enterprise. Every time I have had the chance (exactly once at the Puyallup Fair last year) I wasn't able to because of stupid single rider policies
They have also officially split the parks back into separate entities- Wild Waves and Enchanted Village, just like the old days! This really brings back memories, because they used to have an actual gate between the parks where you would get a hand stamp to get back into the water side. So I guess they must have charged a partial admission for rides only at that time too. I am 100% in favor of changing back, because that water park is always packed with some of the trashiest people in the area so I don't even want to go in there, but usually the rides side is much more tolerable in that respect. I still probably won't go in high season.
This summer should be fun on this side of the NW! Not as fun as Silverwood, but usually Wild Waves is only worth it in early and late season, now I will actually be going during the summer if I don't have to pay for the water park I won't use. I hope this is the start of something even bigger for this little park, I have been going there for years and it would be awesome to see it expand even more
