When Magic Springs closed in 1995 Arkansas lost it's only true amusement park. True, there is Burns Park Funland in Little Rock, Arkansas, but Magic Springs was an actual working park. There were a couple of plans to redevelope the area, and the amusement park wasn't part of the plans. One idea was to make a large thermal bath/swimming pool.
When these pictures were taken, pretty much all hope of Magic Springs reopening was fadeing faster than a cheap t-shirt from Walmart.
Thanks to Scott, and Mike for their views of the past.
