Valdosta -- South Georgia's theme park, Wild Adventures, is now open to the public again. The park had its grand opening this weekend under its new owners, Herschend Family Entertainment.

Almost 10,000 families went to the park Saturday with another strong showing Sunday.

Visitors can now expect to see new shows and animals. These new additions are now available because of the park's new seasonal schedule.

"One of the first changes we made was to give ourselves a break during the slow winter months to give us a chance to repair and refurbish and add exciting new elements to make 2008 great for our guests," said Public Relations Manager, Sara Sumner.

Wild Adventures will soon be opening up its first new roller coaster in three years in March. The park was sold to its new owners in September of last year.
