When visiting Six Flags, I like to go through the safari. While I do miss driving through, it remains quite enjoyable to experience. It's a good idea to do this earlier in the day. The lines do get long. Even so, it's worth the wait.

I really enjoy the safari. Always have. Unfortunately for me, I don't like the safari trucks as well. I miss driving through at my own pace, with air conditioning. The upside is that you get much closer to the animals. Tour guides provide very good information along the tour.

We took the safari mid-day on a Tuesday and waited about 45 minutes. The tour is about 40 minutes and there is a tour guide. Ours was Jen. She seemed very knowledgable about the animals and they looked well cared for.

The sign said, there is "40 minutes of wait from here." When that snaky line approached an end, it dovetailed to another maze/line which said "60 minutes of waiting from here." When that snaky line approached an end, another maze showed another sign "40 minutes from here." In all, our two little girls and we waited almost 3 hours to... More

Came here with the family and every minute spent on this safari was awesome! After making a line for about half an hour, jumped on the back of a military style truck and off we went on our journey! I was amazed by how many different animals they have on the premises. The ride in goal is about 45 minutes... More

The Safari park is no longer a separate park now, though I recommend visiting when you first get to the park as the longer you wait the longer the line. We loved our visit and want to mention that Hasson was a terrific tour guide, kids loved him, great sense of humor and knowledge about the animals.
