Valdosta, GA – Wild Adventures Theme Park is celebrating the start of football season Saturday, August 12 with a “Kickoff, Blast Off” Hall of Fame Rally featuring NFL legend and local football favorite, Fred Taylor. Guests can further celebrate with a $28 admission price to reflect Taylor’s jersey number.  

The former Jacksonville Jaguar recently stirred up football fans across the country when he expressed his interest on Twitter about being included in the prestigious National Football League’s Hall of Fame.  

“My family and I are very excited to visit with fans at Wild Adventures,” Taylor said. “We had plans to visit, meet some guests and now for the park to host an all-out rally in my honor – that is more than humbling.”

The former running back still leads among NFL’s top-20 career list with his 11,695 rushing yards. His football career started at the University of Florida and spans 13 seasons and two NFL teams. 

Taylor will sign a free photo for those in attendance and guests can bring small mementos for his autograph as well.  He will also be available for a limited number of radio interviews prior to August 12.
