In Partnership with the Southern Weekend

Theme Parks Covid-19 Protocols

School will be out before we know it so, it’s time to start planning those Summer Vacation trips! We put together a list of all the Covid-19 protocols from different theme parks. Here’s what you need to know before you go! Keep in mind that these protocols might change.

Covid policies for Splash Kingdom in Shreveport and Holiday Springs in Texarkana have yet to be released. Both parks open in late May.

Magic Springs Theme and Water Park (Hot Springs, Ark.)

Consider purchasing the following items online to minimize wait. We encourage the use of credit cards whenever possible.

Bring as few items as possible into the park. Park Security will be doing bag checks

face masks will be optional for guests visiting Magic Springs. We continue to encourage you to wear a mask while indoors or when social distancing from other guests outside your group is not possible. Covid-19 cases continue to trend favorably, vaccinations are still being generously administered and the public is more educated about masks. Magic Springs continues to encourage everyone to get vaccinated and wear masks if they desire.

Be patient – as social distancing will create added wait times at high volume locations such as: Park Entrance, Entrance to Rides & Water Attractions,  Food Stands & Retail locations and Season Pass Office.

Social distancing will cause reduced capacities on most attractions. For your safety please follow all posted guidelines.

The following locations will be closed for guest safety: Select Games Locations, Old Time Photo, SkyShark,  Additionally, waves are not currently operational at Wave Pool due to social distancing requirements.

Seating in Water Park will be reduced to comply with social distancing guidelines.

Due to fewer anticipated guests may we suggest a weekday visit so as to ensure the best visit possible.
