If you love to spend your summers basking in the sun and fun at Magic Waters, get ready for some big changes over the next two years. 

Financing for upgrades to the popular Splash Blaster ride, which had some safety issues last season, has been approved by the Rockford Park District board. Besides fixing mechanical and safety issues, the ride could soon see some pretty cool additions to enhance the ride's experience.


Season passes for the 2016 Magic Waters season are on sale now for $75 for residents, and $90 for non-residents. That discounted price is only available until March 31, 2016, so you better buy them now at magicwaterswaterpark.com.
