Special to the Journal
Wild Adventures Theme Park in Valdosta is a premier place to experience Halloween this October, with the family-friendly Kid-O-Ween and the fear-filled Phobia. During the day, Kid-O-Ween returns with more interactive activities for families to enjoy. When it gets dark, Phobia frightens with all-new haunted experiences for scare seekers. Both fall events are included with park admission, a 2010 Season Pass or a 2011 Season Pass, available beginning October 1.
Kid-O-Ween Celebrates the Sillier Side of Halloween.
Now in its second year, Kid-O-Ween is a family-friendly way to celebrate Halloween in addition to the park’s rides, animals and entertainment. Children select their very own magical pumpkin in Monty’s Magical Pumpkin Forest or doodle on a giant coloring mural, both new for this year. The event includes fall themed interactive activities, such as Monster Mash Dance Party, a hay bale maze, trick-or-treating, and a craft station to inspire even the smallest goblin.
Kid-O-Ween runs Saturdays and Sundays in October, 12:00 p.m. – 6:00 p.m. This event is appropriate for guests of all ages.
All-New Phobia Engulfs the Swamp
The all-new Phobia is the only Halloween experience of its kind set in a blackwater swamp. The tea colored waters of the swamp create the perfect haunting environment. With the addition of The Fearmaker, a demented character, Phobia is the ultimate haunted experience.
The Fearmaker, the embodiment of all things evil, has crept into the park to wreak havoc, bringing guests face to face with their worst nightmares. Guests wander through a single, horrifying pathway facing their most terrible fears. They will either escape the Fearmaker’s deadly grip or join his entourage.
Phobia runs Friday and Saturday evenings, 7:00 p.m. – 11:00 p.m. in October. Some guests, including children under 12, may find some of the experiences or images disturbing and should not visit Phobia. Select rides will operate during Phobia.
