Wild Adventures ensures guests' safety

July 6, 2005

Valdosta - Park officials at Wild Adventures say if something suspicious happened to Leah in the park, the security measures they have in place would've caught it.

The park has several security checkpoints and public safety personnel on duty. After Leah's grandmother reported her missing, those workers conducted an exhaustive search of the park and reviewed more than 195 hours of surveillance video.

Park officials say the safety of their guests is top priority. "We've got checkpoints, we use comprehensive video surveillance throughout the park, we also use off duty deputies on the peak days and so there's a lot of precautionary measures that go into our security here at Wild Adventures," said Jimmy Holmes, Park Vice President.

The park's security video does not show Leah re-entering the park after she left.
