We have gotten season passes for a few summers now. They need better trained staff and lots of updating to their rides and pools. The lifeguards need to monitor their areas more throughly.

I had my first trip to Magic Springs and I can't believe all there is to do there! Rides, waterpark, concerts, and more! I am considering season passes for next year. This was super fun and the highlight of my summer.
