Valdosta, GA – Wild Adventures Theme Park in Valdosta, Ga. opens Saturday. March 10, 2018 with a brand new themed area, new foods, and a 2018 season full of concerts and special events.
The new season at Wild Adventures begins with MEGABUGS! Adventure Encounters, an immersive and interactive experience featuring more than 70 larger-than-life insects and arachnids. Guests will crawl like a spider, fly like a bee and dig like an ant as they interact with colossal crawlers.
To celebrate MEGABUGS! Adventure Encounters, Wild Adventures will host “Eat a Cricket, Get a Ticket” events on Saturday, March 10 and Sunday, March 11. The first 200 guests on each day to eat a dry-roasted cricket at Wild Adventures will receive a general admission ticket to the park.
