Boo! Magic Screams is back and as spooky as ever.

Magic Springs' annual “Magic Screams” Halloween festival is gearing up for six weekends of fall fun, beginning on Sept. 28 and continuing through Nov. 3.  

You can get spooked on one of the many park rides, stock up on treats along the trick-or-treat trail, showcase your creativity in the family costume contest and lots more.

The family movie series will feature a scary flick each Saturday and Sunday at 7 p.m. each night at the Split Rock Grill:

  • "Little Monster" Sept. 28 & 29
  • "Monster House" Oct. 5 & 6
  • "Ghostbusters" Oct. 12 & 13
  • "ParaNorman" Oct. 19 & 20
  • "Hocus Pocus" Oct. 26 & 27
  • "Goosebumps" Nov. 2 & 3

New haunted attractions include the kid-friendly Illusion Confusion, a silly haunt for little monsters, and an inflatable corn maze. For those looking for a big scare factor, the new CarnEvil #9 (a 3D scream vision experience) and ExitTrance 2.0: Psychedelic Journey to the “Other Side” will do the trick. Returning haunted attractions include Wasteland and The Last Ride, where The Ozark Mountain Taxi Company ride has been transformed into a zombie hunt adventure.

Each day in the kids' zone, you can also explore a pumpkin patch, go down the trick-or-treat trail and participate in the pumpkin roll. A costume contest, The Great Mummy Wrap, The Great Pumpkin Roll and other contests are scheduled each weekend as well as various performances. See the complete list of events here.

During the festival, almost all of the theme park’s rides will be open for plenty of adrenaline rush fun! Enjoy thriller favorites like the X-Coaster, The Gauntlet and Sky Shark. All of the kids rides — from the Fearless Flyers to the Looney Ballooney — will be up and running. The only rides closed during Magic Screams (in addition to all of the water attractions) are The Hawk and Log Flume.

Magic Screams will be open noon-11 p.m. Saturdays and noon-9 p.m. Sundays from Sept. 28-Nov. 3 Tickets are $29.99 plus tax for adults, $24.99 plus tax for children.
