Magic “Screams” from Hot Springs AR

October 9th, 2013 by Kristie Rosset

Magic Screams Hot Springs ARDuring the month of October, the Magic Springs theme park takes a spooky turn with its annual tribute to Halloween—“Magic Screams.” Each year, the theme park provides haunted activities for families and those visiting Hot Springs. Attractions at “Magic Screams” include costume contests, haunted houses, and pumpkin painting.

This year, you can enjoy two new shows: “Ghoul & The Gang,” a teen-oriented show with pop music, and “Reunion of Souls: Rock the Dead,” which features hard rock music and dancing ghouls. You could also dance the night away on Saturdays with “The Ghoul Zone,” hosted by a DJ.

For children, “Magic Screams” will keep the kids’ rides open, as well as having a pirate-themed haunted house and a trick or treat area. It’s a family delight that you won’t want to miss!

Magic Screams” will take place during three weekends in October—the 12th & 13th, the 19th and 20th, and the 26th and 27th. The park will be open from 4pm to 11pm on Saturdays and 4pm to 9pm on Sundays.

Bird Watching in Arkansas

November 6th, 2012 by Kristie Rosset

I believe one of the best bird watching places on the globe is right here in Hot Springs. One of the most effective ways to still your thoughts and slow down is to sit for a while and simply enjoy watching birds. Observing these fascinating creatures, especially in fall and winter, and paying attention to their life patterns recharges our battery, clears our mind and rekindles our soul.

With the holidays fast approaching what a wonderful way to calm our fast pace and enjoy the beautiful scenery by watching our fine feathered friends. At Lookout Point Inn we are seeing extraordinary birds on our feeders including finches, cardinals, tufted titmice, blue jays, woodpeckers and chickadees – to name a few.

We’d love to have you visit the inn and spend some time with our lovely array of Arkansas birds. Call for reservations @ 501.525.6155.

We immensely enjoyed The Christmas Carol (the musical) at Arkansas Repertory Theatre (The Rep) in Little Rock. “Our own” Adam Hose

Ray, Adam (aka Bob Crachit), Kristie, and mom

stars as Bob Cratchit, singing a tender duet with Tiny Tim. We call Adam “our own” because he is a beloved guest of Lookout Point.

Hailing from New York, whenever Adam is performing in the area, he considers our Hot Springs bed & breakfast home for an escape.
