Safari Off Road Adventure
Historically, Six Flags Great Adventure featured a drive-through safari with an entrance separate from the main entrance to the theme park. This was closed in 2012 in order to pave the way for a new Safari Off Road Adventure with vehicles and tour guides provided by the park.
The Safari Off Road Adventure officially opened on May 25, 2013 and is accessed from the Frontier Adventures section of the park, near Runaway Mine Train and Saw Mill Log Flume. Riders board one of 18 safari-style open-air vehicles seating 30 people. These trucks are painted with zebra stripes and topped with a canopy. To add to the air of authenticity, drivers are outfitted in safari gear.
A very big surprise!! It was like Kilimanjaro Safari but much longer and mid-point to go to the bathroom. The animals do get quite close and at one point a giraffe started licking the side of our car (apparently, they like to do that)! Overall, it was an amazing experience espically for six flags!
A new addition to Great A. A very good Safari ride. Ride on converted army 21/2 ton trucks. A well informed tour guide takes you on a bumpy ride for up close animal encounters. You do get close up to the animals. They have a stop off half way through the ride so that you cant pet animals, which is great for the kids. This is a nice hour long drive through that is really popular with families and has a long wait time. So get there early.
