Now in its third season, the Wilkins Music and Comedy Show entertains audiences with two hours of laughs and classic songs from the 1950s through the present day. Shows storm The RayLynn Theater's stage three nights a week, leaving a trail of microphones, bright-red curtains, and burned out funny bones in their wake. Led by husband-and-wife team Tom "Ray" and Susan "Lynn" Wilkins, the diverse cast tallies up more than 125 years of combined performing experience. Laugh, sing along, and applaud the overhead lights' riveting performance as onstage actors in be-sparkled garb do the same.

The Body Mind & Soul Expo advocates natural wellness and personal growth through free lectures and enlightening exhibitions and seminars from alternative-health practitioners and businesses. Melt cosmically into chairs during massages from Ashley Little, channel dormant Bert and Ernie personalities during hypnosis by Rich Ervin, and bedazzle spirit fingers with custom-made sterling-silver jewelry by Chon & Jasmine Stanley, who represent just a few of the event’s numerous exhibitors. Expo organizer and featured speaker Sharlette Pumphrey speaks Saturday at 2 p.m. on spiritual/intuitive development, illuminating the connection between spiritual growth and self-improvement as well as sharing messages from members of spirit families, including helpful reminders that the oven is still on. The expo lasts from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Saturday and 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Sunday.

Thanks to The Gauntlet, butterflies fill visitors' stomachs long before they even enter Magic Springs and Crystal Falls Water and Theme Park. The coaster looms high over the parking lot—forming a bright yellow web out of some 2,200 feet of steel track. Then, shrieks echo as riders plunge down a 110-foot drop and rocket through five inverted loops before finally planting their feet back on solid ground. And that's just the beginning.

Sprawling across the grounds are dozens of other attractions that cater to all levels of thrill-seeker. While the X-Coaster dangles riders and inspires avant-garde hair styles with its slowed-down loop, the family-friendly Big Bad John takes others on a runaway train ride through the forest. Elsewhere, a kiddie airplane ride and a carousel delight tiny visitors, and everyone can break to eat at the Lakeside Ice Cream Parlor.
