Wild Adventures lights up the park and its natural swamp trail for the holidays

Wild Adventures Theme Park in Valdosta, Georgia, kicked off Christmas celebrations this past Saturday on December 4 with over one million lights, a five-story animated Christmas tree, festive food, Santa visits and new light displays, including the Glimmering Light Trail.

“Wild Adventures Christmas is an annual tradition for families across our region, and each year we work hard to ensure that everyone who visits has an unforgettable and illuminating experience,” said Adam Floyd, marketing communications manager. “Our new Glimmering Light Trail will provide one of many magical moments this year.”

InPark Magazine contributor Philip Hernandez deep dives into Herschend Enterprises and its growth from a cave tour into an entertainment company of theme parks and beyond.

When the sun goes down, the Glimmering Light Trail comes alive, along with millions of other Christmas lights throughout the park, including a five-story animated tree, the largest Christmas Tree in South Georgia.

“We also have new entertainment for families to enjoy this holiday season,” said Floyd. “In addition to our popular Living Nativity, guests can learn to be one of Santa’s elves at Holly Frostington’s Elf Training Academy, jam out with The Drummer Boys percussion group, and participate in the nightly Christmas Tree Lighting Parade and Dance Party.”

Guests can also take a train ride on the Holiday Express to learn about Christmas traditions from around the world and pick up a Wild Adventures Christmas Tasting Card to enjoy some delicious and unique holiday treats.

“Throughout the park, you’ll find fun Holiday foods like a Colossal Holiday Shake, Apple Cinnamon Funnel Cake Fries, Hot Chocolate, S’mores, and even Cherry Chipotle Pulled Pork Sliders,” said Floyd. “We’ve put together a special menu of limited-time items for you to enjoy while you celebrate Christmas with your family and friends.”

Wild Adventures Christmas began on Saturday, December 4 and continues select days through January 2.
