Covid-Safe Santa Arrives at Wild Adventures Christmas

VALDOSTA, Ga. – Wild Adventures Theme Park in Valdosta, Ga. kicks off Christmas celebrations this Saturday with over one million lights, a five-story animated Christmas tree, bright new additions and Covid-safe visits with Santa.

“That moment a child shares with Santa is special, and we know how important it is to preserve that moment even with the challenges this year has presented,” said Patrick Pearson, director of sales and marketing. “Our team has worked hard to design an immersive and safe way for guests to share their Christmas wishes with Santa during Wild Adventures Christmas.”

Guests visiting Santa’s Valdosta workshop will be able to interact with the jolly old elf through a window that peers directly into Santa’s office. Visits with Santa are available during special Brunch With Santa events and throughout the day.

Wild Adventures Christmas also features over one million Christmas lights and one of the largest Christmas trees in the South.

“Our five-story animated Christmas tree towers over the park and is an incredible sight among all the other festive decorations,” said Pearson. “We hope families will join us to close out this year with some Christmas cheer.”

New this year to Wild Adventures Christmas is an 18-foot Jukebox Christmas Tree decorated with lights controlled by artificial intelligence and that dance to songs chosen by guests. Also new this year is the Wild Adventures Christmas Tasting Card which allows guests to pre-purchase several holiday treats and an unlimited soda wristband at a discount.

Wild Adventures Christmas will also see the return of guest-favorite shows, including “The Miracle of Christmas: A Living Nativity” and “Christmas with Tiger Friends,” which provides an up close and joyful experience with the Tigers of India.

Wild Adventures Christmas is included with park admission or a Season Pass. 2021 Season Passes are on sale now, and all children age 3 to 5-years-old get free admission with a Pre-K Free Kid’s Season Pass, available now at
