2015 Additions Announced for Wild Adventures Theme Park

More than $1 million in new capital will be spent at Georgia's Wild Adventures in 2015, the theme park has announced.  The expansion will be centered on a new family thrill ride alongside a new animal habitat.

Named Jungle Rumble, a new 'flying carpet' flat ride attraction will be built, aimed at providing a thrilling yet family friendly ride experience.  The attraction "will take guests swinging, swooping, climbing and dropping" as the carriage rotates and swings back and forth.  When completely vertical, the carriage will reach four stories above the ground.  The ride cycle includes both forward and backward rotations, and with riders seated facing each other that means that everyone will spin in both directions.

Jungle Rumble is actually already under construction at Wild Adventures, and will be located near the Swamp Thing roller coaster.  The photo above was shared by the park of the ongoing work as a tease before today's announcement.  While not announced by the park, the ride is expected to be moved from the defunct Celebration City theme park, also owned by Herschend Family Entertainment.

Located adjacent to Jungle Rumble will be a new animal exhibit featuring squirrel monkeys.  Guests will be able to watch the "entertaining little critters climb, swing and jump from branch to branch."  The area surrounding the new attractions will also be renovated an rejuvenated.
