Fun and excitement await the entire family at Magic Springs and Crystal Falls. There are two entertainment complexes to pick and choose from, meaning there's double the fun. Magic Springs has all the rides and games characteristic of your favorite amusement park. There are thrill rides for the adventurous, family rides for all to enjoy and children's rides specifically for the younger family members. Towering above the tree line, visible from miles around is the X-Coaster, one of Magic Springs' signature thrill rides. With its deep drops and 360 loop, even the biggest thrill seeker will think twice before taking to the X-Coaster.

Once you've had enough of the heart-stopping rides, head over to Crystal Falls where an assortment of water rides is ready for you to jump in and splash around. See which family member wins as you hurl down the racing slides, take a trip down the adventure river, or frolic through the splash zone. There's also a wave pool and countless waterslides. Catch a wave on the Boogie Blast surf simulator, the only one in the state.

As if the amusement and water parks weren't enough entertainment on their own, you won't want to miss the special annual events held on the grounds. One of the events you'll definitely want to attend is the concert series, with performances by award-winning artists from every genre ranging from pop to country, rock, hip-hop and gospel.
