Share with friends


Hundreds of glowing jack-o-lanterns will transform Wild Adventures Theme Park in Valdosta, Ga. as Great Pumpkin LumiNights opens this Friday. The all-new event is joined by the return of The Pumpkin Spice Festival and the introduction of a new Season Pass Program with three affordable options and new monthly payment plans.

Great Pumpkin LumiNights features towering tigers, gigantic giraffes, super-colossal spiders and more–all made of pumpkins. The glowing displays, along with hundreds of pumpkins throughout the park, have transformed Wild Adventures to create a fun and immersive event for families to explore.

“Around every corner is a new pumpkin surprise that will delight our guests and attract visitors from throughout the region,” said Patrick Pearson, director of sales and marketing. “Great Pumpkin LumiNights represents one of the largest investments we’ve ever made in a holiday event, and we made that investment because we believe Wild Adventures is the best place for families to make unforgettable memories this Fall.”

On Oct. 9 and 10, professional pumpkin carver Jim Morey of Huntington Beach, Calif. will be demonstrating his skills for guests by carving portraits of two Wild Adventures fans.

“The Pumpkin Spice Festival at Wild Adventures is the only large-scale celebration of Pumpkin Spice in the country, and we’ve expanded it this year to include even more of everyone’s favorite Fall flavor,” said Pearson.

The Pumpkin Spice Festival menu features more than 20 spiced-up treats, including Pumpkin Spice Funnel Cake Fries, Pumpkin Spice Churros and Soft Pretzels with Pumpkin Fluff, Pumpkin Spice Maple Pulled Pork Sliders and Chicken Wings, Pumpkin Spice Frozen Cheesecake, The Mighty Pumpkin Colossal Milkshake and more.

“During Great Pumpkin LumiNights, guests can enjoy thrilling rides and tasty treats throughout the day and an incredible glowing experience at night,” said Pearson. “The best way to visit is with a Season Pass, and we’ve completely overhauled our Season Pass program to provide additional benefits and value.”

Beginning this week, three new Wild Adventures Season Passes will be available for the lowest price of the year: Gold, Silver and Bronze. While each pass includes unlimited park admission through January 1, 2023, the Gold and Silver Passes include additional benefits. The Silver Season Pass includes free parking, and the Gold Season Pass includes free unlimited soda. Prices for each pass will increase after Oct. 31.

“We’ve also introduced a new monthly payment program powered by Uplift,” said Pearson. “Monthly payments make it even easier for families to make memories at Wild Adventures.”
