Six Flags Great Adventure in Jackson, NJ announced Monday the Wild Safari park at its complex will close a month early and in the future will no longer allow drive through automobile visitors.
The park announced September 30th the Wild Safari section of the New Jersey complex will close. A majority of the traditional visitors to the Wild Safari park drive their own vehicles through various habitats in the park to view the various animals species on display. In recent years the park has offered guests an additional bus service to view the animals at the Safari.
Six Flags stated the animals will stay at the park but will not expand on the details of the park's future until August 30, when the 2013 season plans for all Six Flags parks will be announced.
Six Flags Wild Safari opened in 1974 and has recorded more than 10 million drive thru visitors. It is home to 1,200 animals, which include giraffes, elephants, rhinos, and lions. At 350 acres the Safari is larger than the Great Adventure amusement park and Hurricane Harbor waterpark next door. Overall the properties in New Jersey comprise the largest Six Flags complex in the country.
