Wild Adventures, Valdosta, Georgia, unveiled the re-theming of an iconic ride, an S&S Double Shot, to celebrate the park’s partnership with Valdosta State University (VSU). Wild Adventures and VSU began their partnership in August 2018 by making Wild Adventures Season Passes available for free to all VSU resident students and offering a significant discount on season passes to all students living off-campus.
“The Blazer Pass has been an incredible success,” said Molly Deese, vice president and general manager, Wild Adventures. “And we are proud to offer our park to prospective students as one of the many reason they should choose Valdosta State University to continue their education.”
Wild Adventures and VSU took the next step in their partnership by introducing the Blazer Blast Off. The Blazer Blast Off was previously known as The Firecracker and was featured prominently in the 2009 film Zombieland.
“There are not many communities around the country that have an iconic theme park such as Wild Adventures in it,” said Dr. Vince Miller, vice president of student affairs, VSU. “And I don’t know if there is any university in the country that has its own, university-branded theme park ride. This is an exciting partnership for Valdosta State University, our community and Wild Adventures.”
