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!

This was so worth the wait. Way better than Disneys Safari in FL. Would highly recommend it. The wait is long but if you go first thing in the am making it your first ride than you should be good! So worth it for the kids!

I had great things about the safari park how cool it would be. We stood in line for hour and a half in 90 degree weather with hardly any shade. Two tents and water mister at the front of the line. I watched people pass out from being to hot also watched people jump the line. Got told by security... More

Great experience. A little long , but worth the ride. You could speed it up by not exiting the bus for feeding giraffes and small zip line attraction (these are additional $) It's a nice break from the park if you want to sit back and look at animals.

You have to ride in an open air post war military vehicle that allows the visitor to smell and see animals who are not well taken care of, years ago you brought your car through and bought new wipers and moldings due to damage by monkeys, now only you suffer the damage by seeing them in a sad state, a...

Speaking as someone who had visited the safari often when you could drive through in your own car, I liked the safari truck and tour guide version more than I thought I would. The open sides of the truck do make it feel more up close and personal with the animals. Not much else is different except for the optional... More

Totally worth visiting. Don't skip it. I went on a day with an overcast the animals were actually up and moving all over the place. Bears were swiming, Lions were playing and laying on their backs like house cats and tiger were running parallel to the vehicle we were in. Awesome!
