Magic Screams is the annual Magic Springs Halloween event with family fun and fright for guests of all ages. Saturday hours are 4pm-11pm. Sunday hours are 4pm-9pm and include Hot Springs haunted houses for the entire family and our Hot Springs Trick-or-Treat Trail.
The focus of Magic Screams is Halloween fun, but most theme park rides are open including: X-Coaster, The Gauntlet, Wild Thang, Big Bad John, Ozark Mountain Taxi Co., Razorback Roundup, the Carousel and our kiddie rides.
Children and adults are welcome to join in the fun and dress in costume, but only children 12 and younger may wear masks. Weekly costume contests are held for children with the grand prizes being 2014 Season Passes. Get info here.
Join us for SlashDance with DJ Kramer every Saturday night from 8pm-10 at Ghoul Zone. Adults can join in the fun at Fear Garden for just $20 which gets you two drinks, entertainment, and a fast pass to the two adult scare houses, Psychophobia and Paradox.
Fast Passes to the two adult scare houses are available to everyone for $10. It entitles you to a one-time shorter wait period before entering each of the houses. Get your pass at Witches Brew, located across from the Carousel.
Also at Witches Brew, you can purchase seasonal beverages such as coffee, hot chocolate and hot cider. If you desire a sweeter spell for your taste buds, grab a cookie or cinnamon-roasted cashews almonds or pecans.
You can only get certain seasonal goodies during Magic Screams, so save room for supper! You can find our most popular dish, loaded baked potato soup, along with chili and turkey legs at Smoke on the Water, across the pond from Ghoul Zone. Fall favorites, caramel candy and fudge-dipped apples can be found at Prospector, just down from Smoke on the Water.
