Magic Springs

Among the thrill rides at Magic Springs is The Gauntlet, an inverted coaster.

Magic Springs.
While it is not an enormous park, Magic Springs does offer a good assortment of rides, including major coasters. It also offers a roundup of the usual park suspects such as a log flume ride, shoot-the-chutes ride, bumper cars, a few spinning thrill rides, a carousel, and kiddie rides.

General admission includes access to the adjacent Crystal Falls water park, although the area is relatively small and lacks marquee attractions such as a water coaster or a funnel ride. It does, however, offer Boogie Blast, a FlowRider surfing attraction.

One of Magic Springs' more intriguing features is its concert series. The shows at the park's Timberwood Amphitheater, which include country, pop, classic rock, tween, and other national acts, are included in admission. Reserved VIP seats are available for a nominal fee.

Location:

Hot Springs, Arkansas. The actual address is 1701 E. Grand Avenue.
