As an added bonus during spring break 2014, Morgan’s Wonderland guests will enjoy special entertainment that’s free with park admission.
This will include amazing animals from Happy Tails Entertainment on Wednesday, March 12, and three days of popular “Dinosaur George,” who’ll transform the theme park’s Event Center into a natural-history museum filled with artifacts from prehistoric times.
“We’re delighted to offer special spring break entertainment in addition to our more than 25 attractions including rides, playscapes, gardens and other fun elements,” said Ron Morander, Morgan’s Wonderland general manager.
Actually, the unique, 25-acre theme park – designed with special-needs individuals in mind and built to be enjoyed by everyone – will be open daily March 7 through 16. The latest information on operating days and hours of operation, admissions and special activities can be found at www.MorgansWonderland.com.
On Wednesday, March 12, Happy Tails will present live animals from around the world in an educational, entertaining and interactive show. Animals starring in the 1 p.m., hour-long show will include an alpaca, African porcupine, ring-tailed lemur, wallaby, coatimundi and kinkajou, to name a few. Audience members will be able to see them up-close and direct questions to the Happy Tails animal specialists.
During park operating hours Friday through Sunday, March 14-16, “Dinosaur George” Blasing will present “Touch-A-Saurus,” an array of touchable displays featuring creatures that roamed the earth long ago. The self-taught paleontologist and animal behaviorist will talk about prehistoric times and answer park guests’ questions.
Backed by 35 years of study and research, Blasing has appeared live before more than 2 million people, and he has lectured at some 2,800 museums, schools and public events. He is the writer, co-creator and host of “Jurassic Fight Club” on the History Channel.
Morgan’s Wonderland is now the focal point of “Wonderland, Texas,” a family fun destination that also includes the STAR (South Texas Area Regional) Soccer Complex; the Scorpions FC, San Antonio’s pro soccer team; new, 8,000-seat, multi-purpose Toyota Field, home of the Scorpions; and Monarch Academy at Morgan’s Wonderland, a school for students with special needs.
Net profits from the Scorpions, Toyota Field and STAR Soccer have been designated to help non-profit Morgan’s Wonderland meet its financial obligations as well as expand programs and services for the special-needs community, Morander explained.
Morgan’s Wonderland is located at 5223 David Edwards Drive in Northeast San Antonio just west of IH 35 at the intersection of Wurzbach Parkway and Thousand Oaks Drive. For more information, call (210) 495-5888.
