Six Flags Great Adventure has confirmed that it will incorporate the former Wild Safari drive-through into a new theme park ride dubbed Safari Off Road Adventure.
The park announced the closure of the separately-ticketed Wild Safari in August 2012, but revealed at the same time that the animals would remain on-site. This led to strong rumors that the park would convert it into an on-rails theme park attraction similar in style to Kiliminjaro Safaris at Disney's Animal Kingdom and Rhino Rally at Busch Gardens Tampa.
That's exactly what it plans to do - and the good news for guests is that the Safari Off Road Adventure will be included with the standard price of park admission. Guests will board 35-passenger safari trucks, which will drive through the rugged terrain of the former Wild Safari area.
