Ah, the summer of 1988. The year of my Sweet 16. The summer I failed my driver's test twice. The year Joan Jett brought I Hate Myself for Loving You to the charts. The summer Silverwood first exposed us to don't-ride-this-if-you-have-a-heart-condition fun. It's hard to believe 25 years have passed. Even harder to believe it took me three times to pass my driver's test.
Anyway, this weekend marks the opening of Silverwood's 25th year, and to celebrate they're offering tickets $19.88 each. Buy your tickets online or at the gate. Boulder Beach won't open until later in the summer, and that's probably a good thing, considering you need to wear a swimsuit to play in the pool.
