Small park with lots to do

When we lived in Hot Springs we always had season passes to both parks. They are smaller parks when compared to 6 flags but easier to manage with a 2-3 year old. We like to go... read more

My older daughter and I went when picking up my younger daughter from camp. We thought it would be fun. It was way too hot in the summer (we didn't go to water park, that might have been better). I'm sure park more comfortable in fall and winter. The worst was getting stuck on a ride for 20-30 minutes. The... More

When we lived in Hot Springs we always had season passes to both parks. They are smaller parks when compared to 6 flags but easier to manage with a 2-3 year old. We like to go Sunday mornings when the crowds were small and the wait times were short. The refillable cup for drinks is a deal but the food... More

Prices are Disney-like for a small, local park that should be family friendly and family affordable. Most "working-class families are excluded when a mere admission is $25.00 or more per person...and that is after being forced to pay $10.00 for the priviledge of parking your vehicle. Come on! Forget "Highway robbery" they get you in the parking lot! Add-on costs... More

Great thrill rides, decent water park, but the food is way overpriced. The wave pool and lazy river are great concepts, but they get filthy and I am afraid to go in the water some days. The entertainment for the Saturday night concerts is usually pretty good and offers a wide variety of genres, all family friendly. The October Magic... More

This is a really fun amusement park and water park. It is big enough to spend all day and never run out of things to do, but small enough to not feel like you have walked 100 miles and not done half of what there is to do. The tickets to get in are a little pricey considering that so... More

Took my granddaughter there during labor day weekend and she absolutely loved it. Its a great place for kids and adults. The amusement park side wasn't open so we we didn't get to take her on that side. Tickets are pricey and the food prices are ridiculous so eat before you get there. Sometimes the lines are long for certain... More

We had an awesome time at Magic Springs. The children loved every part of the park. Several different areas to explore for non swimmers and swimmers. We went during the week so the lines were not long at all.

I had never been to Magic Springs before and when he went last year, it was during the Halloween time. It was great! Had all kinds of haunted houses and such. All the rides were open except for the water rides and the water park area. Lots of great roller coasters if you like that. Good for all ages. Some... More

Love that you can cool off at the water park, between rides. The X ride had me evaluating all my life choices. Then for some crazy reason I decided to ride it a second time.

Magic Springs is one of the most fun and fairly priced things to do in the Hot Springs area. The key is plan how you will eat and how you dry off as you prepare to leave. A little bit of prep and thought and you can have fun for a reasonable price. Also look online and sometimes you can... More
