Photo TR: Magic Springs October 13, 2007

Postby coasterdude5 » Sat Oct 13, 2007 8:45 pm

I took my girlfriend along with me to Magic Springs for their "Magic Screams" event today. It's no Fright Fest or HHN, but its an honest try.

Here's the ride lineup: (Gauntlet and Twist n Shout were closed)
X-Coaster - 2x
Arkansas Twister - 4x
Big Bad John - 2x
Dr. Dean's Rocket Machine - 2x
Log Flume - 1x
Diamond Mine Run - 1x (40th coaster)

Onto the pics:

Image
New slide complex for 2007 greets you at the parking lot.

Image
"And we're the robbers..." (anyone know where that's from?)

Image
The entrance plaza fountain area entrance.

Image
"Yeah you break all the rules!"

Image
They turned the changing room into a haunted house or something... we were there to ride coasters.

Image
I see XXX-Coaster.

Image
Yeah it were cooler if you were Abismo but your state as of now will do.

Image
Back in the summer when the train was stuck upside down for 30 minutes I said "oh yeah it'd be awesome to be stuck upside down up there for half an hour!"

Image
After riding it again I quickly retracted my statement, haha. C'mon Spain trip folks, you know what I'm talking about! Hanging upside down with that "holy crap I'm gonna fall out" sensation going on.

Image
The ride looks pretty cool from the ground.

Image
It looks different from each side.

Image
See.

Image
Here they come at blazing speeds! Comcast yeah!

Image
Check out the folks in the second car! That's a Texarkana reunion done gone going on right there!

Image
Free Pepsi products = Free Mountain Dew!

Image
Welcome to Hawk - a boom that rotates forward and backwards.

Image
Bienevenudos a Hawk... (that's as much as I can remember...)

Image
Hey, they're trying...

Image
Ma and Pa, we done gone left Billy Bob Jane on the haystack!

Image
I don't know about this ride... it's so rough it's almost fun.

Image
The trims were crazybad but once you figured out how to ride it, it wasn't so bad.

Image
Here's where the worst of the trims were.

Image
The cars were shaking as they made the final turnaround...

Image
Supersoak that... no one's dumb enough to stand there in this weather.

Image
I was gonna ride it...

Image
But the train was stuck on the lift... (maybe they're getting ready for those new trains!)

Image
My 40th coaster.

Image
Dr. Dean's Rocket Machine - I had never been on one before - very impressive.

Image
Back to XXX-Coaster

Image
And the award for most random placement goes to...

Image
Yeah that would suck getting stuck up there.

Image
Dr. Dean's Rocket Machine kept breaking on us...

Image
Big Bad John. It's been everywhere but Texas.

Image
It's a cool ride.

Image
Twist n Shout was down today.

Image
It hurts. (the ride, not the fact that it's closed)

Image
It's alright but it sorta shakes you up a bit.

Image
The park is built around a central lake. Thought you might find that interesting.

Image
And 10 seconds later it broke.

Image
Did I pass the test?

Image
Thanks for reading.

^ Thanks its a nice park that I feel sometimes gets pushed under the radar. It deserves some more attention (besides when something goes wrong)
