Wild Adventures Theme Park Hosts Fireworks Spectacular For Santa’s Send-Off

December 15, 2022

VALDOSTA, Ga. – Wild Adventures Theme Park in Valdosta, Ga. is celebrating Santa’s return to the North Pole with a special fireworks spectacular on December 23.

“Santa’s Send-Off Fireworks Spectacular is an all-new event aimed to add a little extra magic to our guests’ Christmas celebrations,” said Elke Schultz, marketing manager. “We’re excited to wish Santa well on his way back to the North Pole to prepare for his big trip on Christmas Eve.”

The show will begin at 7:30 p.m. with an interactive parade where guests can join Santa through the park before the Man in Red prepares to head back to the North Pole. 

At 8 p.m. guests can watch as we send Santa off in style with a dazzling fireworks display set to holiday music.

Guests can enjoy all the new entertainment and attractions Wild Adventures Christmas has to offer this year, including the Candy Cane Express, a peppermint-scented train ride through brilliant light displays set to festive holiday tunes and new twinkling displays along the Glimmering Light Trail. 

Also new to the event are the woodland creature antics of “A Very Puppet Christmas,” the new “Magic of Christmas Parade'' where kids dance and sing along the way to light up a towering five-story animated Christmas tree, the new S’mores Village where guests can make a tasty treat over an open flame and Georgia’s Largest Snow Foam Party where kids can play in a mountain of foam. At the end of the night, guests can enjoy FREE hot chocolate at Wanyama Observation Deck.

Wild Adventures Christmas continues everyday after Christmas, from Dec. 26 through Dec. 31.

"Our 2022 Season will close on New Year's Eve with another amazing fireworks display and the return of Family First Night, an exclusive event featuring a special buffet, reserved fireworks seating and more," said Schultz.
