Valdosta, GA – This October, Wild Adventures Theme Park (WA) is the area’s number one Halloween destination for fun by day, fright by night. For 10 frightening nights, beginning Sept. 28, the park hosts the new Terror in the Wild. Terror creeps out of the swamp to descend upon the park at dusk, bringing all new scares in nine haunted locations. For the lighter side of Halloween, Kid-O-Ween returns during the day to offer fall-themed activities for families. Both events are included with park admission, a 2012 Season Pass or a 2013 Season Pass, on sale beginning Sept. 25 with new benefits.
WA’s new event, Terror in the Wild, conjures up zombies, plagues and other creatures of the night in a new format with nine unique haunted locations. Ashkra Plague of the Witch, an attraction set in the park’s blackwater swamp, transports guests to 16th century Europe during the time of the plague. One of three scare zones, Zombie Crash, depicts an apocalyptic scene with flesh hungry zombies while Poe’s Garden, a themed area, is an eerie raven-filled garden that plays on guests fears of darkness and birds.
Also new this year, guests can skip the lines at select haunted attractions and two rides of their choice with a Terror in the Wild VIP Package that also includes a meal, including a beverage, and a photo souvenir. The package is available online or at the park, with or without admission, starting at $29.99.
“Terror in the Wild is not your typical Halloween experience,” commented WA Director of Entertainment John Ancona. “Guests won’t find the traditional haunted houses and scares but attractions, scare zones and themed areas to frighten the most thrill-loving guest. Wild Adventures is the area’s number one place for Halloween frights.”
Terror in the Wild runs Friday and Saturday evenings, Sept. 28 to Oct. 27, from dusk until 11 p.m. Terror in the Wild is not recommended for guests ages 12 and under. Guests in costume will not be permitted to enter the park during Terror in the Wild and select rides will operate. Guests can visit www.terrorinthewild.com for more information.
“Next to Christmas and Thanksgiving, Halloween has become American families’ favorite holiday,” said Ancona. “Whether it’s enjoying the cooler weather and half a dozen family friendly activities during the day or wandering through a myriad of haunted locations spread over the park at night, families can celebrate Halloween all month long at Wild Adventures.”
Kid-O-Ween returns with Halloween themed activities during the day for even the smallest goblins. Children are invited to visit in costume to enjoy activities like selecting a magical pumpkin from the pumpkin forest, trick or treating, wandering through a hay bale maze or taking part in Count Rockula’s Dance Party. Kid-O-Ween runs Saturdays and Sundays, Sept. 29 to Oct.r 28 11 a.m. – 6 p.m.
