A trick-or-treat trail, haunted houses, and thrilling rides -- Magic Springs Water & Theme Park transforms into a Magic Screams, the ultimate Halloween hang-out for families from Oct. 11-Nov. 2. Plus, Little Rock Family will be giving away tickets to our readers each Wednesday in October (more details below)!

Here are five things your family will love at Magic Screams!

1. Kiddie Treats

On the trick-or-treat trail, kids can play games for candy prizes. Kiddos can also brave the haunted house made especially for them, called "Shiver Me Timbers." The pirate-themed attraction offers a milder experience for smaller children. Or, hop on one of the kids' rides for a little thrill.

2. Coasters and Rides

Bigger kids can take a whirl on some of their favorite Magic Springs rides and coasters, including the SkyShark, X-Coaster, The Gauntlet, Wild Thang, Big Bad John, Ozark Mountain Taxi Co., Razorback Roundup and the Carousel.

3. Haunted Houses

In addition to the kiddie haunted house, "Shiver Me Timbers," Magic Screams features two themed haunted houses. Braver souls can wander into the two terrifying attractions -- "Psychophobia" and "Paradox."

4. Superhero Fun

The fun isn't all frightening -- superhero fans can participate in a superhero-themed contest at 6 p.m. on Oct. 11 for a chance to win up to four 2015 season passes. Contestants will have the first chance to meet and greet Wolverine; a public meet-and-greet will be held immediately following the contest, and will be followed by a screening of Despicable Me 2. All three activities will take place in the Split Rock Grill.

5. Movie Screenings

New this year, families can catch a classic Halloween flick at the Split Rock Grill. Movies shown include Despicable Me 2 (Oct. 11-12), Corpse Bride (Oct. 18-19), Beetlejuice (Oct. 25-26) and Monster House (Oct. 31, Nov. 1-2). All films begin at 7:30 p.m.
