Wild Adventures Gets Buggy in 2018 with Mega Bugs! Expansion

© Wild Adventures
If you're afraid of bugs you may be a bit apprehensive about visiting Wild Adventures' new-for-2018 addition, a giant immersive and interactive area featuring larger than life bugs.  There will be a total of 70 new exhibits within Mega Bugs! Adventure Encounters, allowing guests to stroll through the area and learn about insects as they go.

“We are always working to make our guest experiences bigger and better, and in 2017 we expanded our waterpark with Ohana Bay,” said Molly Deese, Vice President and General Manager. “Now, in 2018, we are excited to announce the addition of a new themed area.”

Visitors will find the exhibition at Wild Adventures for only the 2018 season, running as a limited engagement.  The winding paths will encourage visitors to "crawl like a spider, fly like a bee and dig like an ant as they interact with colossal crawlers."

Some notable additions within Mega Bugs!  include:

• a 15 foot tall Emperor Dragonfly
• a 26 foot tall Hissing Cockroach
• a 50 foot tall Madagascan Fire Millipede
• plenty of other critters such as bees, butterflies and ladybugs

Set to be ready for Wild Adventures' opening date of March 10th, 2018, Mega Bugs! will also feature educational displays that highlight the insects' special features, such as their unique sounds and movements.
