Wild Adventures Announces Expansion in 2018

Valdosta, GA – There’s a buzz in the air at Wild Adventures Theme Park in Valdosta, Ga. as the park expands in the 2018 season with the addition of MEGABUGS! Adventure Encounters.

“We are always working to make our guest experiences bigger and better, and in 2017 we expanded our waterpark with Ohana Bay,” said Molly Deese, Vice President and General Manager. “Now, in 2018, we are excited to announce the addition of a new themed area.”

MEGABUGS! Adventure Encounters is an immersive and interactive area, featuring more than 70 new exhibits of larger-than-life insects perfect for “bugologists” of any age to explore. It will be at Wild Adventures for a limited engagement through the 2018 season.

Guests will crawl like a spider, fly like a bee and dig like an ant as they interact with colossal crawlers along winding paths.

In this brand new area of the park, guests will come face-to-face with a 15-foot Emperor Dragonfly, a 26-foot Hissing Cockroach, a 50-foot Madagascan Fire Millipede, and much more, including friendly Bees, Butterflies and Ladybugs.

The exhibits also spotlight special features, including the individual sounds and movements that make these insects unique members of the animal kingdom.

MEGABUGS! Adventure Encounters opens at the start of the Wild Adventures 2018 Season on March 10.

MEGABUGS! Adventure Encounters is included with park admission or a 2018 Season Pass. For more information about MEGABUGS! Adventures Zone or 2018 Season Passes, visit
