it was losing its funnnness when they locked up the monkeys and you could not feed them. Now you get totally different experience. its more like a wanna bee safari tour but I guess its better for the monkeys but not us. just get the speedpass and ride the coasters you hammer head!!

Move over Busch Gardens, Tampa. This ride gets you close up and I mean right next to the safari and to the window close up. You get to see animals roaming free and close enough to think you are on an actual African Safari. This is great for kid and adults, the guides are hilarious and very informative with the... More

The safari was a lot of fun. If you have not been there in awhile they no longer let you drive through. They have nice converted military trucks that take you on the tour. If there is anything I can suggest is that you should not get off at the little area they have half way through. It was a... More

Let me start with, I am an ANIMAL LOVER!! I purchased tickets for the annual Grape Adventure at Six Flags Safari. Its a wine tasting event paired with the safari tour. It was EXCELLENT! We interacted with a bunch of different animals. I fed giraffes, lamas, pigs, donkeys, miniature horses. Got up close and personal with a parrot, a barn... More

2 hour line to ride a really bumpy truck jammed with 30 people for less than 30 minutes. Waste of time and just not fun.

The lines are long but that is expected at most amusement parks. Unless you can really stay all day and plan it out, you can only get on a few of the more exciting rides. Shows are decent. Food is decent. Entrance fees per person are not cheap but parking was really high, twenty five bucks is a bit steep.... More

This added attraction to Six Flags Great Adventure is a nice addition to the park, and what makes it better is that it's included in the park ticket price! They have a great variety of animals from around the world and allow you to disembark from the vehicle (you can choose not to, if you prefer) half way through the... More

The Safari at Great Adventures is a great attraction for animal lovers, kids, and families. I myself enjoyed it because unlike the past when guest drove their own vehicle thru the safari, now Six Flags provides transportation. The vehicles are awesome, they are high enough to provide good views. Compared to the safari ride in Disney's Animal Kingdom, Great Adventure's... More

We loved it! The off road adventure is awesome! It was like actually being in Africa. Just the right amount of time. The wait can be lengthy I heard, but we were lucky and got right on. Everyone should check it out!
