This weekend I'll be taking my family, along with a friend's family, to Wild Adventures Theme Park. I'm poining up and gonna go with my daughters to see the "Boy Band" they are in LUV with :? (jhonas bros. I think) and hang out at the park....ride the rides....and have a lotta fun with the family and our friends family.
My question is about the Valdosta area and Wild Adventures park IWT carrying, in particular attitudes towards carrying, local laws, off-limit areas, and any past experiences ya'll have had while there.
I've done the search here but didn't find too much WWT off-limit areas or just all-out banned places. I plan on carrying most of the time but I'm looking for any specifics about the park and area in general. The concert will be a public gathering so that's a no-no, so I'll most likely leave the side arm locked away in the car.
Anyone with knowledge and experience there please sound-off as I'd greatly appreaciate any heads-up ya'll can give me.
Thanks, Goldie

An Extra tid-bit for discussion purposes: My buddy is deployed and we'll be with his wife and kids........she is originally from the Chicago area and is pretty anti.......but she knows I carry and is alright with it, she just has an overall fear of guns and dosn't like them around, so this'll be an intresting weekend. :wink:

I'm pretty sure Wild Adventures has metal detectors. Last time I went was before I started carrying so I don't even think I noticed.

My brother is in school down there @ VSU. As he as told me...he likes living there, but there are places you don't go, especially at night. He has accidently fentured across the bridge and tracks...immediately he felt like a piece of meat. I've had another friend of mine tell me the same thing. Everytime I've gone, I've carried. Keep it well concealed and you don't have to worry. As far as the po-po's, I haven't heard much from him.

Wild Adventures has a no weapons allowed policy. I'm not sure if they have metal detectors or not now, but one of my buddy's went a while back and said they didn't use 'em them.

The cops in Valdosta are pretty laid back. The LCSO deputies aren't interested in you unless they can find a reason to forfeit your vehicle/cash.

Valdosta is very easy to get around, and while there are a few iffy areas, you aren't likely to get anywhere near them doing the tourist thing.

Be sure to go over to the stadium on Saturday night and pull for the Blazers over the Golden Rams.

Didn't see the Blazers or the Rams Sat. night......I was hanging around Wild Adventures whilst my daughters screamed, yelled, and professed unwaivering musical devotation to the Jonas Brothers Band......Oh Boy!

:roll:

Wild Adventures is a great lil' theme park......with a no weapons or knifes policy......and maned, working metal detectors. OK, no problem, my sidearm stayed locked up in the truck.....didn't like it though. Stayed in a hotel right off I75 and had no issues at all....I stayed outta trouble...even with the wife and my girls. Valdosta was a great place to spend Labor Day Weekend with the daughters and the Boy Bands!



Did get to see Clint Black last night though :D

They had an hour and fifty minute weather delay at the game, but VSU still had time to whip ASU 41-3.

I envy you (in a good way) for getting to spend time in Valdosta, absolutely one of my most favorite places in this world.

no weapons allowed

I went with the family to Wild Adventures this summer (great place). They sent me back to my car with my trusty Spyderco- no knives allowed and they do operate metal detectors. But, they did let me lock my knife up in the car-and ride roller coasters to my childrens heart content!
