Wild Adventures theme park in Valdosta, Ga. has unveiled a re-theming of one of their attractions to celebrate the park’s partnership with Valdosta State University (VSU).
Wild Adventures and VSU began working together in August 2018 when Wild Adventures season passes were made free to all VSU resident students and discounts on season passes were offered to students living off-campus.
“The Blazer Pass has been an incredible success,” said Molly Deese, vice president and general manager of Wild Adventures. “And we are proud to offer our park to prospective students as one of the many reasons they should choose Valdosta State University to continue their education.”
On Friday, the theme park and VSU took the next step and introduced “Blazer Blast Off” during a ribbon-cutting ceremony with VSU students, administration and representatives from the park. The ribbon was torched instead of cut to keep with the “true Blazer spirit,” according to Dr. Vince Miller, vice president fo student affairs at VSU.
“There are not many communities around the country that have an iconic theme park such as Wild Adventures in it,” said Miller. “And I don’t know if there is any university in the country that has its own, university-branded theme park ride.”
The Blazer Blast Off, previously known as “The Firecracker”, was prominently featured in the 2009 film “Zombieland”. The re-branded attraction is now open to all guests.
