Wild Adventures Theme Park

Take a trip to Zombieland to take your mind off Irma

What better distraction from the potential devastation you and your family might come home to  than a free day at the amusement park used for the post-apocalyptic movie “Zombieland.”


Wild Adventures Theme Park in Valdosta, Georgia, a little north of the state line along I-75, is offering free admission on Saturday to hurricane evacuees.

“Our hearts go out to those affected by Hurricane Irma,” park General Manager Molly Deeser said in a release. “We want to provide an opportunity for those who have taken shelter in our community to step away and have a few hours of fun at Wild Adventures.”

Just show a valid ID from a Florida, Georgia or South Carolina county under evacuation orders to gain the free entry. The park, which could be impacted Sunday by the storm, opens at 10 a.m. on Saturday.

The “Stars of Wrestling” have a two-hour show planned at the park, called “Pacific Playland” in “Zombieland,” which starred Woody Harrelson as a “boisterous zombie-hating good-old boy” named Tallahassee.
