Would you eat a cricket if it meant getting a free ticket to a theme park?

Wild Adventures Theme Park in Valdosta, Ga. opens this Saturday, March 10 with a brand-new themed area, new foods and a 2108 season full of concerts and special events.

The new season at Wild Adventures kicks off with Megabugs! Adventure Encounters, an interactive and immersive experience featuring over 70 insects and arachnids. Guests will crawl like a spider, dig like an ant and fly like a bee as they interact with larger-than-life creatures.

To celebrate Megabugs! Adventure Encounters, Wild Adventures will host “Eat a Cricket, Get a Ticket” events on March 10-11 at 9 a.m. The first 200 guests on each day to eat a dry-roasted cricket at Wild Adventures will receive a general admission ticket to the park.

In addition to Megabugs! Adventure Encounters’ additions to the park, Wild Adventures is adding Colossal Shakes to Mayfield Ice Cream Shop. These oversized milkshakes include the Megabugs! Real Cricket Shake and the [email protected] Shake, along with seasonal flavors for holidays.

The park’s 2018 Flash Foods and Circle K Summer Concert Series begins on April 7 with Little Texas, and continues through August with performances by Scotty McCreery, Amy Grant, ALABAMA, Jeff Foxworthy, Tasha Cobbs Leonard, 3 Doors Down, Skillet and more.

The Wild Adventures special events calendar continues with brand-new experiences for this year, including the Big Boy Toy Show, the Pecan Harvest Festival and Coca-Cola Racing Weekend. Several other park events will also return, including BBQ Country, La Fiesta and the Cars & Coasters Car Show.

The park will “Light Up the Sky in July” with four firework displays throughout the month, starting with Wild Adventures’ Fourth of July Fireworks Spectacular. The new Team FMX & Globe of Death Motorcycle Show will give guests major thrills with at least two daily shows from July 19-28, with death-defying stunts performed by daredevil drivers that will lead to a grand finale on July 28.

Megabugs! Adventure Encounters, the 2018 Flash Foods & Circle K Summer Concert Series and Wild Adventures’ Special Events are all included with regular park admission or a 2018 Season Pass. For more information on Wild Adventures and to see their full event schedule, visit WildAdventures.com.
