Magic Springs will be hanging on to the X Coaster for another year. When they went to disassemble it to move, they discovered it was welded in places and not bolted. That slowed it up and they stopped till they figure out if they can move it now. So... It's to operate this summer.

And now the 2013 concert lineup, lots of Christian Comtemporary. It's missing some urban flavor in the likes of a soul artist. one date yet to be announced.

Added a non water park attraction this year, a upcharge sky coaster. So much for the nothing but water park theory for the moment.

Um... Schlitterbahn (the original), Hurricane Harbor (DFW), and a few others have Skycoasters.

Schlitterbahn has also bought the old shoot the chute ride at the old Alabama Adventures, reaaly similar to Roaring Falls that is sitting at CC. So who knows what Schitterbahns grand scheme is.  And I'm awate that the KC location has a zipline . I'm not going to confuse Magic Springs' waterpark with a Schitterbahn.  I think as long as their summer concert series keeps being popular the dry side may not see anything in the way of new but it'll maintain itself.

I just wish that this was Dan Koch's park instead of the one in Birmingham.

They added ziplines to all of the Schlitterbahn parks last season
