Clyattville - A south Georgia attraction is benefiting from a national tourism trend.
Attendance at theme parks is up four percent after a couple of down years.
Valdosta's Wild Adventures has seen steady growth even when other parks were hurting.
"After 9-11 the world changed. So many people were afraid to go to those bigger parks since they thought they may be targets. So people started looking for more local, regional type places to go, said Jimmy Holmes, Vice President of Marketing and Entertainment. .
All the hurricanes this past fall did hurt attendance at Wild Adventures. But the park still hopes to exceed 1.5 million guests this year.
