We always visit Magic Springs on our annual trip to Hot Springs. This was our 4th year in a row to visit with our kids and once again we had a great time. The July fireworks at dark was amazing!

My daughter and I usually go by ourselves at least 2 weekends out if the month. I will give you some hints to save money, since the food is so expensive. We pack a small cooler with lunch meat and drinks, keep it in your trunk. When you get hungry you are more than welcome to go to your car... More

It was a Monday. Theme park scheduled to close at 7pm, but surprise! Its fudge shop closed at 6pm. Water park was to close at 8pm, but surprise! The "lazy river" closed at 7pm. Very disappointed by these operational decisions. Truly. I'm proud of how the park has expanded since my working there 30+ years ago. But this trip back... More

This place sort of salvaged a kind of crappy day in the middle of a great trip to Arkansas - so it gets the benefit of the doubt, but I wouldn't go out of my way to visit. It's a smallish water park and associated amusement joint with all of the relevant stuff - water slides, a few small roller... More

There's lots to do from a wave pool to roller coasters. Weekdays aren't very crowded, and we were able to walk onto most rides. Food is overpriced. $50 for a large pizza, seriously??? The ride attendents were friendly. I did see a lifeguard hold her nose when she jumped into the pool. Hmmmm...

We went this past weekend for a concert on Saturday night and luckily the fireworks show had been postponed because of weather. They have a nice place to see an outside concert. The fireworks after the concert were way more than we expected. Awesome fireworks show!!! We went back Sunday for a day in the park and had a great... More

We've been to the park several times, and have had a good time, but every time we go to a concert we have encountered just downright rude staff. They are angry and aggressive even towards the kids. Please train your staff in guest relations!!! They ruin the whole day for families that have spent quite a bit of money to... More

OK so there have been some negative reviews regarding number of attractions or size... you have to know this isn't Six Flags or WDW... it is a small theme park and despite that, they have some good rides. Admission also includes the water park so it's 2 for 1. Look for discount coupons around town. Parking was $10, admission was... More

Magic Springs had the typical rides and waterpark amenities. Worth a visit but nothing out of the ordinary.
