Win Tickets to Magic Springs Opening Weekend
Your favorite high-flying rides will be back this Saturday, April 12, when Magic Springs Water & Theme Park opens for the 2014 season. The Crystal Falls water park will open May 10, once again drenching visitors with pools, rivers, slides and Splash Island, which debuted in 2013.
In addition to all of the usual fun, the park will debut a brand-new bungee jump attraction called the Sky Shark this summer. Daredevils can strap into a harness with a friend or two. The brave riders will then be hoisted to the top of a 115-foot-tall arch before free-falling at 50 miles per hour and finally swinging above the lake.
Mark your calendar for the upcoming concert season, too. The lineup includes Casting Crowns, Thompson Square, Daughtry, Chris Young and Switchfoot. Tweens and teens can get excited for Zendaya, a singer and star of Disney's Shake It Up, who will perform on May 31. Then, on June 7, 17-year-old singer-songwriter Austin Mahone performs hit singles like "Mmm Yeah," "What About Love" and "Banga! Banga!" Fans of the Disney Channel original series "Good Luck Charlie" won't want to miss a performance by star Bridgit Mendler -- the pop star behind songs "Ready or Not" and "Hurricane" -- on July 19.
The first four weekends of the season will be discounted, offering admission for just $15 per person. To celebrate the theme park's season opening, Little Rock Family is giving away a family four-pack of admission tickets ($60 value) to one lucky winner. The tickets can be redeemed any of the first four weekends, from April 12-May 4. Head to our Facebook page to enter the contest today, April 10, until 3 p.m. We'll announce a winner at 4 p.m.
