Six Flags Great Adventure to Soon Reopen Safari as Drive Through Experience

Six Flags Great Adventure has announced that they will soon reopen their Safari adventure as an individual drive-through experience.  While the theme and water park remain closed due to New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy's orders, he recently made an executive order that allows drive through events so long as they implement social distancing.

An exact date of the Safari reopening has not been announced.

Six Flags Great Adventure's expansive Safari operated as a self drive through experience from 1974 through 2012.  In 2013 the park folded the Safari into the theme park's list of offerings, offering trips through it on guided safari trucks.  The park is happy to now again be able to allow visitors to explore the Safari and its 1,200 exotic animals from the safety of their own vehicles.

The park is currently reviewing and finalizing new safety procedures to further protect guests, employees and animals as the Safari reopens.

Six Flags Great Adventure will utilize a reservation only system for the Safari's reopening, to prevent overcrowding.  As soon as a final opening date is confirmed the park's reservation system will go live at this website.  Season pass holders, members and single day ticket holders will be able to make reservations at that location, after purchasing tickets online in the case of non-pass holders.

Anyone who arrives without a reservation will not be allowed to enter, as there are no ticket sales on site.
