Summer is on its way and so will be the hotter-than-hot temperatures. There are a lot of ways to cool down and one of the best ways is to visit a water park.

Magic Springs Theme and Water Park in Hot Springs has a lot of events planned this summer to keep you, your family and friends cool. This summer is shaping up to be a big one with concerts, special events and great appreciation days.
