This is a terrific place, and the season pass is a great value! Super fun with some really exciting rides - but the best part is their concerts!!!

Took my teenage daughters, we had a great time. Good mix of adventure rides and water rides, finished it off with a concert. Lines weren't too bad, only complaint I have would be a shortage of tubes for the water rides.

Thanks so much for your review, Brad! I apologize for the shortage of tubes on the day you visited. It will certainly be addressed. We always have tubes to rent for only $5 so you never have to wait in line for a tube! If I can be of any assistance to you during the 2016 season, please don't hesitate... More

I live in Memphis and unfortunately there isn't much for us to do there. My family and I love to make weekend trips here and go to Magic Springs. It's not in a big city so usually the crowds are manageable. They have a great lineup for their concert series. We always get the season passes. At times you can... More

The water park had something for everyone, boogie board surfing, calm rides, fast rides, medium intensity wave pool and a long, shaded lazy river. We loved everything about it!

Second time visiting this place and I love it! I went to the Magic Screams event for Halloween and was quite impressed by the adjustments that were made to go with the theme. It was fun to go on all the rides late at night....unbelievable fun for all ages! The Paradox haunted house and Wasteland were pretty cool too! I... More

They have done a good job with the water park and really need to consider adding on. Love the outdoor concerts and talent they are able to bring to... More
