Wild Adventures Theme Park and Splash Island Waterpark in Valdosta, Georgia, will reopen to all passholders and guests on June 22 with added health and safety measures, a new reservation system and a year-long extension for current passholders.
“Creating memories worth repeating has always been our purpose, but it means more now than ever before,” said Molly Deese, vice president and general manager. “We’ve spent months thoughtfully preparing to reopen, and although the experience will be different, we’re confident these changes will help with the safety of our guests and employees. We want our guests to be able to focus on rediscovering joy as a family.”
Over the past few months, Wild Adventures has been actively developing plans to put procedures in place that align with CDC guidelines and industry standards implemented at other parks, including Walt Disney World Resort, Universal Studios Resorts and Six Flags.
One of the new procedures is an online reservation system guests must use before visiting the park. The reservation system is a free service for all passholders and general admission guests that helps the park ensure appropriate social distancing and limit daily park capacity. Reservations can be made at WildAdventures.com/Reservations. Additional details and a “how-to” video have been posted online to assist guests with this new process.
Before entering the park, all employees and guests will have a touchless temperature screening and must wear a mask. Guests are encouraged to bring their own masks or face covering, but masks will be available to guests without one free of charge. Children under three are not required to wear a mask at any time, and guests will not be required to wear masks while eating. Masks will not have to be worn on waterpark attractions.
Wild Adventures has also set aside special “Break Zones” throughout the park in which wearing a mask is not required.
“We understand that wearing a face covering creates challenges, and some of our passholders may not be comfortable visiting right now,” said Deese. “That’s why we extended our 2020 Season Pass through the end of 2021 for all our current passholders. We appreciate our guests’ continued support and for being patient as we adjust to this new normal. By working together, we can create an enjoyable experience for guests and employees.”
