Lowndes County - Wild Adventures guests are beating the heat on Splash Island. "It is awesome," said Carmen Hill, Guest. "Me and my kids could stay out here all day long!"

Less than half of the 20 million dollar water park is complete. But already, guests are coming from everywhere to enjoy the fun. "It's great because there's something for the kids, and we adults are enjoying it just as much," said Hill.

Autumn McCall's favorite part is the 42 foot tall Rain Fortress. "We've been swinging, playing under the sprinklers, and swimming in the pool," said McCall.

It can hold up to 500 people, and is the largest interactive water structure in North America. "The Rain Fortress has water cannons, rope ladders, slides, and something for everyone," said Sumner.

Other guests are relaxing in Paradise River, while construction workers are scrambling to finish phase two of the water park. "We'll have Catchawave Wave Pool, Double Dip Zip Slide, and a sandy beach area where kids can make sand castles," said Sumner.

Those additions should be complete by July.
