Swampy Jack’s Wongo Adventure: $25 Wongo Card

Swampy Jack has traveled all over the world exploring the most exciting corners of the globe. Now, he’s brought some of those adventures to build a one-of-a-kind theme park for you to experience for yourself. Will you encounter the 25-foot Swamp Ape in its dizzying domain? Will you brave perilous heights in the clutching grasps of the Kraken? With so many things to do the most important question is… Are You Ready?

Call Xplorie to book this activity.

What you need to know
  • Eye of the Kraken: A swing-style attraction. Riders buckle into tandem seats, which at first slowly begin to lift. Then the swings begin spinning through the air, sending riders soaring high above the amusement park. This breathtaking attraction provides stunning panoramic views of Pier Park and the surround Panama City Beach area. Must be 48″ to ride.
  • Blue Hole: This is an indoor bumper car-type attraction. However, unlike traditional bumper cars that provide drivers with pedals and a steering wheel, our bumper cars provide two levers which provide greater freedom of movement. Pushing both levers forward will drive the bumper car straight forward, and pulling them both back will send the car backward. Additionally, by orienting the levers in different directions, drivers can make their bumper car spin on its axis either clockwise or counterclockwise. Also unlike traditional bumper cars, our bumper cars don’t just get jostled when they’re struck by other cars. When your bumper car gets hit in the target area, you’ll be sent spiraling around and around uncontrollably. Don’t worry: you’ll get plenty of changes to make the rest of your family dizzy too! Must be at least 3 years old to ride with an adult, with a maximum weight of 65 lbs. Must be 36″ to drive.
  • Yacuma: A Wipeout/Trabant-style attraction. Riders sit in rows along the outside of the circular ride, like the numbers along a roulette wheel. After some initial spinning, the entire wheel tilts up on its central arm to a steep angle, which itself starts spinning. This sends riders into a series of wave-like motions, similar to the slithering of our titular serpent. Must be 42″ to ride.
  • Swamp Ape: This is an indoor Scrambler attraction. The ride begins spinning, sending each row of riders weaving in and out of the other carriages, and sliding riders to the edge of each of their carriages. What makes Swamp Ape one-of-a-kind is that the entire ride is synchronized with a multimedia experience. Lighting effects timed with an incredible sound system and other special effects create complete sensory overload. Swamp Ape will have your family ready to hop right back into the queue to experience it all again. Must be 36″ to ride with an adult or over 48″ to ride.
  • Marrakesh Road Rally: A go-karts style attraction. However, our go-karts are much different than their traditional counterparts. For starters, our karts are electric. Not only does this provide a less noisy experience, but this means that they get significantly more torque than other go-karts, so when you press on the accelerator, your vehicle will really take off.These go-karts are programmable, so they all run almost the exact same speed. Plus, the pit operator can select either the Pro Race speed on the Junior Race speed. This allows younger or less experienced drivers to have their own race at a slower speed, while the more experienced and competitive drivers can have the track to themselves for the faster Pro Race.Best of all, our go-karts offer an added interactive layer with two different Race options. The ThunderVolt Race is a traditional go-kart race but with the addition of four user-controlled Turbo Boosters per race. Each Turbo Boost adds 3 mph to the car’s speed for 15 seconds. At the Pro Race speeds, this becomes a technical track, so you must learn the best times to activate the booths.

    The Power-Up Race adds a new dimension to the racing experience, much like the video game Mario Kart. Embedded all along the race track are special power-up panels. When you drive over these panels, you can receive a power-up that will give your kart added special abilities which you control when to use.

    • Must be 36″ to ride with an adult.
    • Must be 52″ to drive in the Junior Race.
    • Must be 56″ to drive in the Pro Race.
  • Please present your Xplorie Order Confirmation at the ticket counter to redeem your Wongo Adventure Card.
