Previous Future Concepts - The following are possible new attraction ideas that the park has asked their guests about in various surveys. While none of these may ever be built, they do represent a great idea about the kinds of attractions the park was thinking about building in the future at the time.
(6/25/12) Wild Adventures has been sending out some future attraction concepts to guests in an online survey lately. New ideas under consideration include a ‘New Area For Kids” that would feature four new kiddie rides, a Disk’O flat ride, a new kiddie water play area in Splash Island.
And… that’s it. No mega thrill rides… and no new coasters even being considered for the park at this time. Looks like they are trying to focus between adding a family friendly flat ride or more kiddie stuff in the theme park or water park. While it’s been a good number of years since I last visited Wild Adventures, I seem to recall the park being very over populated with kiddie rides already, but that was under the original owner way before they built the water park and long before Herschend bought the place. If your interested, I’ve kept a list of previous attraction ideas they’ve surveyed guests about in years past below.
(3/25/10) Wild Adventures has sent out a future attraction survey to many of their passholders this week. The five ideas being asked about include: Dinosaur Expedition (a walk-through attraction with lifesized Dinosaurs), High Seas Diving Stunt Show (Pirates themed), Casper’s Ghost Blasters (Interactive Dark Ride) and Two Giant Family Tube Slides for the waterpark and a Jungle themed area with a Zamperla Disk’O.
(6/1/09) Wild Adventures has been taking a survey about some new ride ideas lately. According to our source they ask opinions about four new attraction ideas: Mammoth River (Family Raft Slide), Racing Slide (4 lane mat racer), a collection of new Family Thrill Rides (Junior Coaster, Orbiter, Screamin’ Eagles, Fireball as well as a new animal exhibit) and finally Night Fire, a new Nighttime Spectacular that would mix lasers, projections, lighting effects and fireworks. Looks like the new owners are looking at almost any and all possibilities right now, except for adding a large new coaster.
