NEAR ATHOL, Idaho. -- Attendance at Silverwood theme park is climbing for 2012.
By early August 425,000 thrill seekers had already checked out the rides and attractions at Silverwood. The record was set at 654,000 people in 2011.
“I don't know about obliterate but we would be in a good place to meet it, if not exceed it,” said park spokesperson Mark Robitaile.
Robitaile said a soggy June hurt getting a record breaking summer off to a quick start.
The park has broken the previous year’s record every year since 1999
