Summer in Rockford: Magic Waters Waterpark

I grew up in Rockford and that means I grew up swimming at Magic Waters. I loved it as a kid and spent many summers there with season passes. It’s crazy that now I have my own children that get to experience the same waterpark! Much of it is the same, but a lot has been updated and there have been a LOT of new slides and attractions added since I was a kid.


Magic Waters is one of the largest water parks in Illinois! It’s located just off I-90 near Rockford… you can’t miss it. Experience the Double Dare Drop 75 ft. Speed Slides, Tsunami Bay Wave Pool, Typhoon Terror Adventure Ride, and the thrill-a-minute Splash Blaster Water Coaster Ride! Enter the dark tunnel of the Abyss for lots of twists and turns or relax on the 1,200 ft. Splash Magic River.



Have tons of fun at Tiki Island where a 1,000 gallon pineapple water bucket spills to the delight of guests! Coolers are welcome or you can grab lunch at the new Ocho’s Cantina! There’s free parking and luxury cabanas are available to rent. Visit for more information.


Magic Waters opens June 8th, 2013… we can’t wait! It’s open daily from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and on Mon & Fri from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m.
