Valdosta - Wild Adventures near Valdosta expects 10,000 people to pass through their gates this Fourth of July.

Spectators will get to enjoy all the rides plus concerts.

They'll also be putting on the largest fireworks show in park history.

With gas prices up to four dollars a gallon, many park goers say choosing wild adventures to celebrate the holiday was a no brainer. 

"Actually, because of gas prices, it's a lot closer than Disney and as much fun if not more," says Curby Locklear who drove up from Ft. Walton Beach in Florida.

"We get year passes here and its worth it. A lot better then Disney," adds fellow Florida resident Nick Bailey.

The fireworks show at Wild Adventures starts Friday at 9:30 PM.

They'll have an encore show tomorrow night as well.
