The new jeeps are great. Way more interactive now. Kids love it, especially the giraffes. Lines were long, but thats expected with anyothing at six flags.

It is all new and is included in the cost of admissions. It is a great ride and lots of fun animals. It is worth the trip!

The Safari at Great Adventure is a terrific experience. I went many years ago and I like it much better now because they have narration as they take you through it, which was not possible when you went in your own car.

As I mentioned in another post, the newly renovated attraction is MUCH better than before! The ONLY problem is that they should have kept it as a separate park. Having to access through the main park is a little inconvenient if that's all you feel like doing.

This was a great way to spend a few hours with the kids. The lines are a bit long but a great way to experience some wild life.

my husband and i took this ride. it was not as good as i thought it would be. an unlike the commercials, there is no interaction with any animals unless you get off at the half way point and pay MORE money to feed the giraffes. no monkeys jumped all over as another reviewer wrote.

My husband and I really wanted to see all the animals here as I love wildlife photography, even though obviously, not the real "wild". First, the cost to park was outrageous. Then lines just to get into the park, even though we had free passes through an employer. The map and signage to the safari (or anything) is poor and... More
