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.

To compliment MEGABUGS! Adventure Encounters’ big additions to the park,  Wild Adventures is introducing Colossal Shakes exclusive to Mayfield Ice  Cream Shop. These oversized shakes include the MEGABUGS! Real Cricket  Shake and the Fun@Heart Shake, along with seasonal flavors for  Independence Day, Halloween and Christmas.
