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.


This is a long and incredibly large experience. There isn't much in the way of theming, but it has tons and tons of animals. I was afraid of whether or not they treated the animals with the proper quality though. The tiger exhibits are very, very small. There isn't much shade for the animals. It's a great attraction for seeing animals, but I just felt sorry for the animals. I couldn't enjoy it to the extent of something like Kilimanjaro Safaris because I was just worried about the animals' health. 7/10
