Wild Adventures has some big things coming in 2015. The theme park announced today details on a new family thrill ride and a new animal exhibit. Also announced, among 2015’s fourteen all-star concerts will be Jennifer Nettles and Foreigner.

Opening March of 2015, Wild Adventures’ new ride, Jungle Rumble, will take guests swinging, swooping, climbing and dropping. Like a monkey swinging through the trees, the ride will have no shortage of screeching and screaming. Riders swing back and forth before reaching four stories high then plunge back down to the ground to do it all over again in reverse. The ride is designed for families to enjoy together with thrills for adults and kids.

The new ride will be located near the Swamp Thing coaster and the entire area will be rejuvenated and highlighted with a new exhibit featuring squirrel monkeys. Squirrel monkeys have been part of Wild Adventures’ animal family and the new exhibit will encourage guests to watch these entertaining little critters climb, swing and jump from branch to branch. Wild Adventures is investing more than $1 million to enhance the guest experience with the new ride and animal encounter area.

Also announced, the first two acts of the 2015 All-Star Concert Series have been revealed including a legendary rock band and a country superstar.
