Wild Adventures, the third theme park in the Herschend Family Entertainment Corporation portfolio after Silver Dollar City and Dollywood, made an announcement today concerning a $1 million ride addition for the 2015 season. The new ride is dubbed “Jungle Rumble” and appears to be a flying carpet style ride. The website pitch markets it thusly:
Swing, swoop, climb and drop! You’ll feel like a monkey swinging through the trees with screaming views from four stories high! Opens March 2015.
Since HFEC already owns a dormant flying carpet ride at the defunct Celebration City in Branson, MO, we naturally assume that this is the same ride. Wild Adventures is already home to several other former Celebration City rides, including the Jack Rabbit coaster (now called Viking Voyage), and CC’s old scrambler.
Wild Adventures also had a couple other announcements to make today concerning 2015, including a new concert lineup that includes Jennifer Nettles and Foreigner. Season passes are now on sale at their lowest rates, so don’t hesitate to jump on this deal.
