HISTORY

Wild Adventures grew from a vision of a local family and began as a weekend horse farm.  The farm later evolved from a petting zoo into a full-fledged amusement park with concerts, animals and thrill rides.  Now, under Herschend Family Entertainment, the park continues to grow and is the region’s premiere water and theme park, as well as a favorite venue for concerts.
