Magic Springs is my homepark. and I'm proud
of what has been done at the park since
reopening in 2000. Magic Springs is not a
"thrill park", it is a "family park", and I hope
it stays that way. Unless it involves adding
a large coaster. Go figure on that one. The
park is nestled in a national forest, and is
very scenic. It is possible to take every
family member to Magic Springs and have
fun, and go home feeling satisfied. It ain't
Six Flags so get over it. As a side note, I
have been refered to by the park as the
"rabid Magic Springs fan", guess what
they are right.
CURRENT MAGIC SPRINGS ATTRACTION LIST
The Emporium gift shop. They sell everything
from bathing suits,to Excedrin. I always buy
at least one t-shirt when I go to the park.
Most run from $15-$20.
DeepWoods Diner is sort of air conditioned
incase you go during the middle of the
summer. There is inside dinning, or you
can sit on the large covered patio. They
serve nachos, hamburgers, chicken strips
and such. While it's not 5 star dinning the
food isn't that bad.
Kit N' Kaboodle Express kiddie train. I love
this picture. I would also love to have one
of these in my yard going around the lake.
Lil Leapin Lizards
Bugga Booga Wheel, if your over 6 feet tall
it might be kinda cramped in the seats. I
wish Magic Springs had a giant wheel.
Old No.2 Logging Company, if you have to
wait in a line at the park, you will do it here.
While the ride lacks alot in themeing it is
a very pleasant ride. I wish Magic Springs
would bring back the "ghost town" buildings
that the old guest relations told me about
that was on the course just before the
lifthill. It needs something besides the
tunnel made of vines.
Magic Swings, I don't do spin and pukes to
well so I have not ridden this, also I'm
scared of heights.
Pirates Rock. In 2000 when the park reopened,
this ride was listed as Pirates Rock Sailship
Twist And Shout, a wild mouse style coaster.
While not my favorite thing to jump on at
the park, I'll ride it if I'm with a group of
Magic Springs newbies. The ride needs
some major padding. You have been
warned. Oh yeah, I forgot, kids like it.
From this vantage you can see all of the
lake, the Rum Runner is on the right, the
Hawk is on the very far side of the lake.
The slab of grey concrete on the left is
the foundation for the removed "Skyhook"(R.I.P).
Ozark Mountain Taxi Company is a very long
car ride. It is in a very hilly section of the
park next to the Big Bad John mine ride.
At some points of the course you get the
feeling you might want to get out of your
"taxi" and help it up the hill by giving it a
push, and going down some of the hills the
cars backfire.YeeHaaa! I don't know if this
scares small children or not. I always make
a joke about bad gas.
The taxis came from Paramonts Kings Island.
Dr. Deans Rocket Machine, what can I say
but, O.M.G.!!! While it is not the largest
S/S tower I have ridden, it is my favorite.
Remember, some times bigger isn't
I love "The Hawk", the feeling being whirled
around forward then stopping upside down,
and doing it backwards is great. Plus it
provides a great view of the mountains.
Please secure all loose items on this one
because of the hangtime. Any loose change,
sunglasses, and such will find a way to
leave your possesion.
Wild Thang is not a ride to get on after
eating chocolate covered funnel cakes.
This definitly is not for the faint hearted.
The Rum Runner que line.
I love swing ship rides. I know someone
who got sick on this. He is a member
of A.C.E. and had to sit down after
we got off of it. The Rum Runner is a very
nice version of a swing ship, it features,
compfy wooden seats, and brass on the
The Rum Runner swing ship is on the right
side of the picture. Wild Thang would be
directly behind you.
