The only rides that stood out at Celebration City were the go-karts, shot tower, and Ozark Wildcat. All that leftover Branson USA crap was sold off, as it should have been.
WHAT! Jackrabbit was AWESOME! Fun airtime and I used to get thrown around at the turns like a wild mouse and it was fun. And Thunderbolt/Firestorm? How could you say it wasn't fun? It was one of my favorite rides at Celebration City, that gut buster turn was SUPER fun. And how could say that about Celebration City? All the rides were all so fun! And no, the Branson USA stuff wasn't crap, and you just said your precious Route 66 Speedway was crap by calling the Branson USA stuff crap. Branson USA was a fun park with many fun flat rides and a good roller coaster, Firestorm, later renamed Thunderbolt. But S.D.C did need at least the Orbiter or one of the other intense rides from Celebration City because the only semi intense flat ride they have is the Barn Swing which is run on a TERRIBLE cycle, it only does it's full swing twice.

THANK YOU! Finally, somebody who agrees with me!
Not even close.
Oh, I thought you stood by my post, you had the little arrows and they were pointing at mine. Oh well, I guess I'll just be the only S.D.C hater, Celebration City lover, out of the thousands on theme park review.

What a complete let down (for me anyway). I did enjoy my visit to this park a few years ago. However for me to return I need more than a smaller version of Dinosaurs Alive! to get me in the gates again. I'm sure it will be a hit with the intended target audience. It is more family oriented than the thrill parks I generally prefer going to.
CURRENT COASTER CREDIT COUNT: 80 A little behind...planning to catch-up soon...
Wild Adventures is one of those parks that, having visited once before, I feel just kind of floats along without having to do much between seasons to keep its audience coming back. It is a local market, so the concerts and occasional headliners like Robbie Knievel seem to be enough. Something like the addition of the dinosaurs falls (in my mind) right in the same category of short term efforts to bring the locals back through the turnstiles for another visit.
Change the scheme, Alter the mood! Electrify the boys and girls if you would be so kind!
I would love to see them get a lower capacity cheaper coaster that is still a thrilling stand out ride. I feel like the dry park really needs something to bring get the visitors in.
The dry park is always dead while the water park is overcrowded. I think this addition is fine but since it will go away it doesn't really add to the park. I know a coaster is not cheap, but I feel like a new slide in the water park would've been a very good decision.
My family and I made our first trip of the year to Wild Adventures yesterday. Thunderstorms rolled in and shut down most of the rides. I found it odd that the park only closed rides taller than the tree line at the park. Does this happen at other parks?
Jungle Rumble packs quite a punch. Definitely the most intense magic carpet type ride I have ridden.
