Magic Springs

Welcome to Magic Springs Theme Park

This is the Razorback Round Up Bumper Cars


Krazy Kars (reminded me of a tea cup ride)

Rum Runner Pirate Ship

Hawk was not operating today

Plummet Summit (you got quite wet on the actual ride)

The Gauntlet

It was actually relatively smooth for a Vekoma SLC

There's a nice sized lake in the middle of the ride park.  I like how they have their skycoaster (SkyShark) set up so that it flies passengers out over the lake.

Brain Drain (these drop towers scare me more than the S&S and Intamin versions)

Ozark Mountain Taxi Company features a lengthy course

Big Bad John (this was one of my favorite rides at the park)

Yes this is the infamous section track from the River King Mine Train at Six Flags St. Louis.  It was also at Dollywood for awhile where Tennessee Tornado is currently located.

To clear up confusion, this was not the track that featured the first stand up coaster trains. That track is still at Six Flags St. Louis

 The most unique coaster in the park's collection is X-Coaster

The feeling you get as your exit the lift (completely upside down) is something that cannot be described if you have never ridden X-Coaster

You very slowly navigate this roll

and then you plunge back down through the station.  It then goes back up the lift hill (with the chain disengaged) and rushes back through the station back up to the roll and then back down through the station once more before being slowly brought back to the station.

Diamond Mine Run is the park's junior coaster

Clear on the other side of the park is the Arkansas Twister

The coaster recently had a lot of retracking done and it is running very well.

Magic Springs is definitely a fun little park and worth a visit if you can fit it in to your vacation
